ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This torchy chanteuse leads one of the most badass old-time swing bands you'll ever hear. One thing that distinguishes her from the legions of come-hither, moldy fig front women is that O'Grady writes her own songs - when she's at the top of her game, which she generally seems to be, they sound like classics from the 1930s. She brings Bessie Smith into this century with lickety-split swing featuring sizzling tenor sax solos."
- New York Music Daily

Tara O'Grady’s soulful voice has been compared to Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Patsy Cline. This New York native with Irish roots combines celtic, folk, funk, blues, swing and especially jazz in her unique style. Awarded Irish Voice’s Most Influential Woman 2010, the singer-songwriter has four releases, Black Irish (2010), Good Things Come to Those Who Wait (2011), A Celt in the Cotton Club (2013) and Irish Bayou (2015). Her recording of the famous song Danny Boy was recently ranked #6 in Best Selling Blues MP3s and #10 in Best Selling Jazz MP3s on the UK’s Amazon.com. That song was also featured in an award winning BBC documentary film celebrating the song's 100th anniversary. The film was nominated for best documentary at Ireland's version of the Oscars in 2014, and starred Tara, Judy Collins, Joe Jackson, Gabriel Bryne, Rosanne Cash, and Paddy Maloney of The Chieftains. Her original songs and unique renditions of Irish standards can be heard on radio stations across America and Europe. She is currently editing an inspirational memoir about her Chevrolet sponsored cross-country road trip she took to replicate her Irish-born grandmother’s 1957 journey from the South Bronx to Seattle in a Chevy Bel Air.
