Elizabeth Taylor’s features, Billie Holiday’s voice, Audrey Hepburn’s fashion sense, and a combination of Cole Porter’s writing style with a touch of Nellie McKay’s quirky lyrics. Tara O’Grady is the full package.
Featured on BBC Radio 2 in the UK, Tara’s vocals have been compared to Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Patsy Cline, as well as modern artists Adele and Amy Winehouse. Hollywood Mega-Star Bruce Willis proclaimed his love of Tara’s voice and band one night in Manhattan when he stormed the stage to sing along with her.
She recently completed a book about her cross country road trip sponsored by Chevrolet and was featured as a cover girl on Automotive News’ commemorative edition of Chevrolet’s 100th anniversary, November, 2011.
