Fledgling singer-songwriter Tara Lily shares her official debut single “Who Saw Who“, produced by the legendary grime MC Jammer from Boy Better Know.
The track, composed by Tara Lily herself, features her smoky, 1950’s classical jazz vocals on a beat that melds sounds of traditional jazz, classic percussion and saxophone sequences with and up-beat grime twist, making her one to watch amongst the new wave of South London talent.
“It was originally written about my ex who was constantly missing, it’s about asking yourself who you can trust.” She mentioned. “The song has definitely come out of some chaotic despairing times. It’s a song you can vibe and dance to but also ballad like with its emotion and storytelling.”
Against the status quo, Growing up in Peckham around rappers and beat makers, whilst learning to play traditional jazz and hard bop was what helped refine Tara’s exquisite sound. Going from The Brit School to Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music, to now collaborating with a range of artists from Jammer BBK and Chip to Yussef Days and Ezra Collective, her journey has led to this wonderful moment
Tara Lily’s debut EP No Strings Attached is due for release this autumn where she will also be supporting RAYE on a run of headline shows.
