tara priya Short Info

Effortlessly melding elements of jazz, soul and the irresistible head-nod grooves of ‘90’s hip-hop, Tara Priya has created a sound that’s classic, contemporary and totally original. It’s ghetto soul with a western electronic bent that enraptures from the first listen and calls to mind the likes of Morricone and J Dilla at times and the cool, laid back vibe of a smoky speakeasy at others.

Born in San Francisco to a Persian mother, the niece of much-lauded poet and modernist painter Sohrab Sepehri, and an Indian father, Tara left LA in 2014 for the eclecticism of the east London music scene. Her forthcoming EP--a collection of six compelling, atmospheric songs featuring jazz-hip-hop fusion drums and Tara's "stand out", "jazzed-up" vocal--has received early praise from Clash, The Sun, HYPETRAK, Tom Robinson of BBC 6 Music, and Simon Raymonde of Amazing Radio.

"Tara Priya has opted for the delights of East London to hone and perfect her
already impressive blend of classic soul and trip hop." -- Record of the Day

"A dynamic melange of Portishead-y mood, Morricone-esque instrumentals...very very good modern soul" -- Blah Blah Blah Science

"Sitting somewhere between classic soul, trip hop and the slumped productions of J Dilla...a
contagious, potent statement of intent" -- Clash
