Elizabeth Taylor’s features, Billie Holiday’s voice,
Audrey Hepburn’s fashion sense, and a
combination of Porter’s writing style with a
touch of Nellie McKay’s quirky lyrics.

Tara O’Grady is the full package, combining celtic, folk,
blues, and especially jazz in her unique style. Featured on
BBC Radio 2 in the UK and WFUV 90.7 in New York,
Tara’s soulful and lilting vocals have been compared
to Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Patsy Cline.

Raised on Irish traditional music, as well as the sounds
of Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, Peggy Lee, Glenn Miller,
Hank Williams, Louis Prima, Patsy Cline, Nat King Cole,
Nina Simone, Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra,
Tara spent every summer on her grandparents’
farm in Donegal, Ireland, where she listened
to her granny Nora singing in her kitchen.

Tara has performed all over New York including
at Birdland,
Lincoln Center and The Astor Room.
