I fell in love with music when I first picked up a guitar at age 8. When I played, my friends and family would smile and spill with joy over the music I played, even though it was never Grammy quality. While my music career never made it past high school, my love for music never waivered. I loved the feeling of bringing a smile to someone's face through music and wanted to keep that passion going. So, I took it upon myself to continue to support and promote artists by writing about their music. This way, I can support my personal passion for music and bring entertain and joy to others through music.  Outside my love for music, I do enjoy a good hike and being in the outdoors. My favorite place that I've hiked is in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I love to travel too. I've been to Costa Rica, Vancouver, BC, and England, but the best place by far is Germany on Oktoberfest. I liken that experience to being in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. I like a good book now and then, but I'm more of a streaming fiend. I live for crime docuseries on Netflix, veterinary shows on National Geographic, and re-watching Scrubs on Hulu.

Chris Hill and the Stardust Crush is really more of a music community than a band. Based in Seattle, this music community has no specific genre. With Chris Hill doing most of the writing, instrumentation, and singing, their sound ranges from jazz to rhythm and blues to world music. They also employ soundscapes and ambient sounds within their music giving it an ethereal feeling, even with lyrics that lean more folksy.

This track is the newest addition to Tara’s slew of singles, following tracks like “Can I Ever Go Home”, and our favorite “Laconia”. But this track…

Patricia Silverberg realized music was her path when she attended the Lilith Festival in Phoenix, Arizona, where she saw Natalie Merchant, The Indigo Girls, and Sarah McLachlan perform live. She had already given up the dream of being a singer and performer until the revelation of watching those female singer/songwriters in action. She’s inspired by modern life and everything it offers, the good and the bad. Her raw, intelligent folk/rock lyrics illuminate the world as it is, rather than how we pretend it should be. She brings comfort and relatability to those who have felt alone and outcasted.
