Rarely does such an explosion of talent, personality, determination and charm come together in the beautiful package that is Tasha Blackmore. Hailing from the Scottish Borders but with a heart full of Nashville and influences including Taylor Swift and Staind, Tasha unexpectedly loves House Music and her iPod is full of dance tracks. This eclectic mix of sounds is clearly what gives Tasha her uniqueness along with infectious humour, she is one to watch.
A self-confessed ‘emotional junkie’ Tasha draws from life experience to craft her own portfolio of tracks. This passion and intensity spills over easily into her ‘cover’ recordings making them as intriguing as the original, recently her version of The one that got away by Katy Perry, proves that she is more than competent at handling a hit in her own way.
“My song writing is my way of expressing my thoughts and feelings, I use it to heal, to grow and to understand the complexity of relationships be it family, friends or that special someone. I like to be brutally honest and open, something I can sing but that funnily I find so much harder to say”
Don’t expect Alanis Morrisette angst or Sinead O’Conner fragility, this is a woman who despite a rollercoaster is in control!
After a period of time out from her music due to health reasons and studying at university, Tasha is making a comeback in 2016, and with her long awaited fans eager to hear some new music, she has just released brand new acoustic demos of never before heard songs fresh from the studio. These releases have shot her right up in the charts reaching number 1 after the first day of release. Tasha is keen to keep the momentum going.. It seems 2016 could be an interesting year for Tasha and her music.
