    All I can say is, what a bad, bad girl! Tons of attitude and power. I'm just blown away. Very pleasant and fair to work with. She's a wonderful artist and she took my song to another level. Thank you, Tarra.

    Tarra did an AMAZING job on my project! Her beautiful voice made my song sound like I never, ever dreamt it could. She keeps excellent & timely communication. It's clear that she truly cares about what she does to deliver top-notch results. I could not be happier. I hope to work with her again!

    I've been an advertising creative director for 30 years. It's rare to find an artist with incredible talent plus an incredible "can do" attitude. Tara is such a talent. She'll go the extra mile to make sure your project is pitch perfect. I'm glad I found her. She may add another 30 years to my career.

    What a voice. What a talent. What a "can do" attitude. This is the first project I've worked on with Tarra, and I couldn't be more pleased and impressed. Understands music's role in marketing - and makes a simple pedantic jingle magical. She's made a client of of me. You'll love her.

    I've been spoiled getting to work with Tarra. She's everything you want in a session vocalist: professional, easy going, on time and ridiculously talented! Her communication is superb and she goes the extra mile to ensure you are satisfied with the final product. She's definitely someone I hope to work with again.

    I loved working with Tarra! I thought I only needed her for one song but when I heard what she could do and how much of an amazing writer she was I wound up having her sing and co-write on ever song on my record. I’ll no doubt i’ll have her sing on everything I do from now on.

    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

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. 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.

  3. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  4. A: Personally, I usually work on pop rock and soulful country music.

  5. Q: What's your typical work process?

  6. 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.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. 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.

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. 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.
