Tara Priya Jazzy Soul Filled Bluesy Ecstasy

I have been listening to a young singer from California's bay area named Tara Priya for a while now and I'm digging her old school style.  She sounds a bit like a late 50's or early 60's jazz/soul hybrid with a good measure of blues and pop sensibility thrown in to keep things more interesting.  She has released an EP that is soulful, beautiful and almost haunting in a good way.

Tara's music seems to draw on such renowned artist as Norah Jones, Alicia Keys, Etta James, Sam Cooke & early Billy Joel. All of this while holding an identity of her own.  The songs have a clean structure yet the melody is diverse and filled with emotion.  Play this in a ballroom and I think the dance floor would fill up in a hurry.  I would love to spend an evening in a small club listening her belt out tune after tune.

A quick visit to her website and I learned she is the great-niece of the renowned Persian poet, Sohrab Sepehri.  It seem artistic ability runs in her family.  I cannot wait to see where she takes her music as time rolls on.  You can find her EP on iTunes or Bandcamp.  You can of course check out her Facebook page as well.  I anxiously await a full album release from this talented musician.
