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!
The hot news is that Tasha has just released new single called ‘Permanent Memory’ that she wrote and composed on her own. Tasha released an official music video for Permanent Memory in March 2013 and the video reached 1000 hits in the first week. When talking about the song and specifically Tasha’s lyrics she says “It’s a song about that certain someone that comes into your life and leaves you with a memory that you can never forget”
The ground swell is building, with over 30,000 followers across Tasha's social networking sites, number 1 across all genres on the Reverbnation Scottish borders charts, there is a feeling that 2014 will be a good year for Tasha and her career.
