Tara Elisha / Bio

Tara Elisha is an independent alternative rock musician who’s music is a mix of passionate ballads of human emotions and evocative songs that inspire defiance to a broken and corrupt system. With influences from Pink Floyd, The Cranberries, and Metric; Tara’s music has been described as “dark rock” referring to her haunting lyrics that explore the darker side of human emotions.

Based out of Kansas City, Tara has been recording original music and performing with her band around Kansas City, Lawrence, and other Midwest cities. With a performance style that emphasizes the passions and agonies, the fears and joys, the selfless and selfish sides of our nature. Tara exposes many of the emotions that we all feel as we dream, love, hurt, care, neglect, and experience humanity.

Tara’s lyrics provide the audience with a fantasy like sensation fused with passionate and emotional instrumentals. Some of these songs merely seek to observe human emotions; both the good and the bad. Still others decry a dystopian view of a corrupt world that cares little for the humanity that exists within it. Her sound is rooted in a fractured mix of classic rock, pop, and alternative rock.

Tara and her band have been performing around the Midwest and Nationally at various Casinos, Resorts, Corporate Events, Festivals, Benefit Concerts, and Clubs. Tara and her four piece band have a great performance style that captures the audience and leaves them feeling good and ready to rock.
