Tara Beier, Hero and the Sage|
Label: self released
Reviewed by: Kim Walter, Aug 2018
I saw Tara at a music festival, and I was impressed with her style, her professionalism, and most of all: her voice. She is from Canada. Sometimes her vocals are ethereal, floating above and around the music (#1), sometimes she is more grounded (#2) and for some songs, it is the music itself that takes the dominant role (#8,#9). Overall, nice variety in this album. I feel like Tara is a promising and talented musician we’ll see more of in the future.
