Each song is fresh, inspired by a heartbeat, a soul, and a life of its’ own. A story to be lived. Close your eyes and let your mind go. Where do you travel to? What memories are brought forward?
Fortunately, Tara Kye has had many life lessons to draw upon to write and a great friend, John Dean, who writes with her, they just split the credits 50/50 it’s easier that way then they can relax into the creative knowing they have taken care of one another. Writing together for 24 years.

Was missing the days when every song had a story, a magic, a pulse or a heartbeat! When I was sailing with my family, my dad said, take your saxophone and go sit on that rock on the bay and play your saxophone, you don’t need music, just go play… So, I learned how to improvise, create and enjoy! That one crazy memory liberated me to create….
Life it’s an adventure. It’s meant to be lived, loved and Laugh Always!
