Tara Priya has gotten plenty of ink from us over the past few months and it’s been with good reason. Her voice is a delight, her music is steeped in old school aesthetics but produced with new school flair. The first song we featured, “Rollin’,” is an MP#.com R&B Best of 2011.
“‘Rollin” is the sweet soul fruit of Tara Priya’s endeavors, indeed a rollin’ dose of Memphis R&B blended with just enough hip-hop to keep it current. Think Michael Franti meets Martha Reeves, with a little bit of the Shirelles thrown in for good measure.”
That’s what we said when we first offered this song as a Free MP3 of the Day and, if we don’t saying so, it’s still the perfect description.
We also confessed that we love the “‘aw-oo’ vocals from the girls in the pink chiffon dresses in the background, the twinkly piano at the bridge and the party noises at the break.
And we just love Miss Tara Priya.
