“With a voice seemingly unrivalled in unsigned pop music and more akin to that of Merry Clayton, Tara Flanagan is set to not only break through to, but conquer, the electronic pop music scene. She delicately combines beautifully written vocal melodies, demonstrating the astonishing range and power of her voice, with chilling dark electronic backlines. After being to several shows I am yet to witness a show where Tara does not fixate the entire audience with her energetic performance and empowering stage presence. I’m lucky to have been at the smaller shows, as I’m adamant she will be playing arenas by 2019.” – Jack Bowden, Drummer and Vocalist from Tors.
