Biography

Tara Angell’s music is a collection of classically poignant songs - combining the Southern Gothic tradition of dark humor and years of experience studying the great North American songwriters of the 20th century. Angell’s diverse lyrical influences include literary heroes Flannery O’Connor and James Purdy. She grew up listening to Neil Young and classic rock n’ roll groups of the ’70s, like Deep Purple and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Musically, her leading inspiration is dedicated to these early years of listening. Her songs are deeply sensitive and they come from life spent in and around New York City’s underground culture, which is where she has lived for many years.

While Tara has been compared to other acclaimed female artists, she has a comfortably classic alt/rock edge that sets her apart from everybody else. NY’s Newsday called Tara Angell, “unstoppable” Angell sounds like a mix of Lucinda Williams and P.J. Harvey.” Producer/artist extraordinaire, Daniel Lanois, claims, “Come Down is the darkest and truest record I’ve heard since early Black Sabbath.” And as Ron Sexsmith said, “Come Down is a beautiful record that is dark, heartbreaking and tough at the same time.”
