Q&A: get to know Tarra in thirty seconds
Birthday the 14th of may
Height 5'7. that's 167 cm.
Weight just kidding, you don't need to know that.
MBTI I'm an INFJ...according to an online test...so maybe don't quote me on that.
My go-to playlist... Right now? Taylor Swift. Ariana Grande. Little Mix. LANY. Kacey Musgraves. John Mayer. Lizzie McAlpine. And so many more.
I love making feel-good but profound pop music.
My music sounds like...me, I'd like to think. But also like if Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande had a baby. I especially get compared to Taylor Swift all the time. Hey, I'm not complaining! Her songwriting is to die for.
My favourite thing about being a songwriter is that I get to turn words into emotion. I think it's amazing what words can do to a person, even if only for a second. No, seriously. Words are my thing. If "singer-songwriter" wasn't catchier to the ear, I swear I'd be calling myself a songwriter-singer instead.
Words or music first? Words. Words. Words. But I'm sure you guessed that already. Nearly every one of my songs starts with a lyric idea first! The lyric launches me into the world of the song, and the music... I guess it just flows from there!
Hi there! I am Tarra... but you already knew that.
I am a songwriter. And a singer. But before all of that, I'm just a girl who makes art because art is all she knows.
I hail from Mumbai, India, but my musical sensibilities are global. I found my calling in English pop music a few years ago. Over the last 2 years, I've been lucky enough to have had the chance to work on music with collaborators from the USA, UK, Canada, Spain, the Netherlands....and the list goes on!
Fun fact: I love paradoxes. Maybe that's because I am one myself. Ever met an introvert who thrives on stage? Yep, that's me!
I hate small talk, but put me in front of an audience of 2000 people from 27 different countries, and I am totally in my element!! If that sounds oddly specific, it's because this actually happened- back in 2019, in Melbourne, Australia! That was before a crazy little thing called a pandemic hit.
Since then, I've been in the studio recording an entire catalogue of new music that I can't wait to share with you.
