SHE ROCKS is Tara Vaughan’s love letter to the women who made music history. Tara’s handcrafted set list celebrates the classic women rock ‘n’ rollers, the singer/songwriters who are soft and badass and loving, sexy and vulnerable and independent and LOUD. Tara is a performer who immediately draws you in with her humor and playful conversation and then hits you with a voice that sounds like “honey and whiskey…sweet but with a bite that leaves you breathless”.
Tara Vaughan's soulful vocals and piano techniques are reminiscent of a bygone era, but still have a unique and modern sensibility. In her vocal style you can hear the echoes and influence of legends like Patsy Cline and Sam Cook, and in her piano style those of rock icons like Carole King and Elton John.
Vaughan graduated from Tufts University and independently released three albums, the most recent of which, Dandelion Wine, was nominated for several Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards. Tara's extensive touring history has lead her to open for such artist as Lifehouse, Ben Kweller, James McCartney, and most recently, internationally with Billy McGuigan.
