About Tara Nevins
Tara Nevins' high nasal voice is a study in frailty. Pained, pleading, plaintive, it is a marvel of vulnerable beauty. When put to use on songs about the oddments of love and the fallout of doomed relationships her voice wrings the heart with a viselike grip. Nevins' profound music deserves a far wider following than her image-conscious peers whose sing-by-the-numbers schmaltz is about as sincere the daily soaps.
