Biography

Tara Blaise is a female pop singer from Ireland. The eldest of six children, she was born in London, but at the age of three her parents moved to Ireland, so she grew up in the rambling hills of Aughrim, County Wicklow.

The daughter of an architect and a speech and drama teacher, Tara was introduced to the world of drama and music at a young age, studying Speech and Drama up to grade eight in the Royal Irish Academy of Music.

Tara Blaise’s singing career began at 16 when she formed a band called Les Legumes with some school friends, but it was her stint as a backing singer with Dublin band The Wilde Oscars that first brought her to the attention of the Irish music scene.

After The Wilde Oscars came Igloo. Having made a name for themselves on the Irish live circuit, they entered the studio and produced a couple of well-received singles. Subsequently, when much-vaunted band Kaydee sought her out after their singer quit, she agreed to join. The Kaydee album on EMI was re-recorded to feature Tara’s vocals and released to very positive reviews. However, despite regular touring including a Midem showcase and a London live club residency, Kaydee never quite hit the big time.

Having just decided to go solo, Tara received a call from a friend who hooked her up with John Hughes, (manager of The Corrs, Musical Director of Alan Parker’s film of The Commitments, and former musician with Minor Detail).
