Tara Velarde is not just a singer and songwriter.
The Portland, OR native is also a poet, Indie Folk enthusiast, music teacher, choral soloist, and professional theater actress. Driven by melody and harmony, she represents the best qualities of artists like Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, and Joni Mitchell, and incorporates those influences into one cohesive sound that showcases her fluid vocal range.
Velarde recently released her new single "Willow Baby." Delicate and gentle, the single follows her 2016 full-length album Get Out and Walk. Listen here.
Velarde is also currently bringing her Willow Baby Tour through the West Coast, and she is personally inviting Musical Notes Global readers to come see her perform live. Discover a few other surprises she has in store in the video below. (Full list of tour dates after the jump.)
