Tara Craig captivates audiences with a huge voice that is equal parts soulful and vulnerable. Her songs drip with imagery and are delivered with palpable emotional intensity. From epic spirituals to intimate ballads, there's a timeless quality to Tara's sound. While there is tremendous variety in her songs, they're tied together by her vivid storytelling, unfiltered honesty and an ability to give a voice to the unspoken places within the heart. 

In 2007, Tara Craig moved her music career to the "Live Music Capital of the World", Austin TX.  Where she quickly began to stand out from the crowd.  In 2010, Tara’s fans nominated her for a Roary Award for "Best Female Musician”.  Tara was up against some tough competition including, Erin Ivey and Kat Edmonson. But Tara’s fans rallied their votes sending Tara away with the coveted Golden Armadillo and the title of,  Austin's "Best Female Musician".  

Tara now resides in Portland, Oregon where she's quietly begun work on her second full length album.  

Throughout her career Tara has played hundreds of shows in a wide variety of venues and she continues to hone her craft. Whether in a crowded bar backed by a full band or on the streets of a sleepy beach town, the strength and vulnerability Tara shares through her music resonates.
