Reviews (2)Endorse Tarra Layne
I've had the good fortune of working with Tarra on a handful of recording projects, including her three-song EP and video bundle, "The Yellow Couch Sessions." Her vocal skills are obvious and outstanding, but just as impressive is her work ethic and attitude in the studio. She's a total pro and makes every project that she touches better. - Steven Foxbury, Yellow Couch Studio
Tarra Layne is a powerhouse vocalist. Yet with as much soul and power as this fabulous vocalist can bring to a performance/recording, she can caress the subtle nuances of a song as sweetly as a butterfly's whisper. Tarra always comes to the studio with a positive attitude and takes excellent direction. Tarra Layne is simply ... an absolute pleasure to work with.
Interview with Tarra Layne
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on a conceptual album for an effort called The Campaign To Change Direction, recording my fourth-coming EP, a cover song/video project with a friend, and am also a member of an original Los Angeles-based 80s-inspired project.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Personally, I usually work on pop rock and soulful country music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to set the theme of a song and visualize it. When you see it, you believe it. When you believe it, you devote yourself to the cause and express it with conviction. Feeling is what makes good songs, great.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I like my Cyndi Lauper records as much as I like my Zeppelin records. On a more contemporary basis, I tend to be partial to music that isn't overly manufactured and artists who are also writers.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I receive session work on a consistent basis across an array of genres. I write and sing hooks for hip hop artists just as often as I sing country demos for other fellow writers.
