Who, How and Why
Lara Taubman heard the call to sing and write songs four years ago after a career as a visual arts writer and curator. Her music falls gracefully under the folk genre but within are inspirations of rock and country music, urban street music and the hill music of the Appalachian mountains where she grew up. Today she uses her voice,words and a guitar to do what she loves most - make music, heal, perform and connect to listeners with music.
Her debut album, Revelation, (Wolfe Island Records/Continental Record Services,https://
larataubman/)produced by Hugh Christopher Brown (David Corley, Suzanne Jarvie) to be released in May,2020,was born from the darkness and created in the name of life and light. She lives happy, free and grateful in her home of New York City and Wolfe Island, Canada.
“Lara brings so much life to her songs, singing through experience and spiritual wonder which is new every time I listen. Wisdom is innocent and experience is truth. This is what I learned working on these songs. ”
— Hugh Christopher Brown, Producer of “Revelation” and Founder of Wolfe Island Records
