"Rip and Roll; exploring the snarl of Tarah Who?"

Listening to Tarah Who’s music is being exposed to a modern rock group fronted by a singer songwriter who loves the craft and has a
voice to knock your socks off. Although relaxing on a beach in Thailand she was able to answer some questions that came to mind after
listening to this powerful voice and strong musicians.
Who are your singing influences?
I grew up listening to Alanis Morissette, then Hole and the Distillers. etc.. I don’t necessarily have a singing influence, or consider myself
as a singer. Writing is more like a therapy. I let out of my emotions. Those feelings are very personal so i would not want anyone else
singing those songs instead of me.
When did you first discover a love for music and what made you pursue it?
My mom would clean the house listening to really loud Rock. It ranged from Pink Floyd to the Rolling Stones. My brother and I never
really thought anything, it was just something that she would do (and still does). As I got older, I started liking music (Rock. It’s always
been Rock) and bands. My mom would ask me to pick and put a CD on so we could clean! (The real story is that she would clean and
dance and I was just dancing and rocking out. It doesn’t look good to say I wasn’t helping, does it?!) ( read more on website) - Pete


The mind, soul, rock’n roll heart beat and operator behind ‘Tarah Who?’ is French / American Singer & Multi-Instrumentalist (drummer,
guitarist & bassist) Tarah G. Carpenter. Born in Paris, Tarah got her first drum set at age 14 and shortly after began playing the bass, and
the guitar. After performing drums and bass in Paris for a few years,in several bands, Tarah decided to travel to Los Angeles to explore
the music scene. Tarah answered an ad on craigslist “looking for an artist to perform original songs at a warehouse Party Downtown”.
After performing solo for the first time, the songs she had secretly written on the guitar, she decided she wanted to do her own music
and started playing under the moniker ‘Tarah Who?’.
Tarah Who? is true 90’s spirit, anthemic sing-a-long choruses and a punky edged energetic live show. Live and on recordings, Tarah
Who?’s songs jump out and grab at you to listen. The fact that Tarah can rock the drums just as hard as the guitar is enough to make
any listener pay attention. While Tarah’s been called the female Pearl Jam, her music stands on its own and a live show you don’t want
to miss.
Tarah Who? is known for being a power trio that delivers raw, authentic and loud rock. Here is the interview they did with us recently.
How would you describe your music?
We are an energetic rage rock- punk influenced! But apparently we are also progressive-alternative rock.. Who Knows..? ( more on website) - By Joanna Wilson


Hi guys, welcome to VENTS !
How have you been?
Hi! We have been really good! Lots of new and great things are happening, we are really excited to move forward!
What can you tell us about the title and meaning behind your most recent release?
Our latest EP is called “Federal Circle of Shame”. The meaning behind it might be a little disappointing: I was at JFK one day, and I heard
“Next station is “Federal Circle…” and I thought “Oh that sounds cool! - By VENTS!

The fierce power trio is back with a new EP: "64 Women". The Ep was recorded at Backporch studios with guitarist Jason Orme (Alanis Morissette, Sarah Mc Lachlan etc..). 

Tarah G. Carpenter (vocals, guitar) has surrounded herself for this new ep with Joey Southern (Bass) and Coralie Hervé (drums). 

The very energetic trio is very excited to introduce their new songs to their fans who love Rock and promises to deliver a very dynamic performance.


"If you love raw, grungey rock with big, heavy, fast-paced guitars and driving drums then Tarah Who? may well be your new favourite band you didn’t know about. Tarah’s vocals flitter between raw and heavy, through to emotional and moving, and perfectly juxtaposes the rocky support. "  https://gigradar.co.uk/2016/12/08/introducing-tarah-who/


Tarah Who? you may ask; and the answer is a band which takes a bite of the senses while igniting the imagination with their punk infused and inventively hungry rock ‘n’ roll. The project of French born and LA based vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Tarah G. Carpenter, Tarah Who? is a band really beginning to entice wide spread awareness with a sound which simply demands attention.
