Tarah Who take on the A-Z challenge

Most Inspiring Musician You’ve Ever Experienced:
TGC: Spending time in the studio with Jason Orme was pretty amazing. Jason and I, have known each other for a few years, but we haven’t worked together until now. Turns out, Jason is an amazing character. I knew that he was talented, and that we would work well together, but I didn’t expect to be working with such a great human being!
Thomas Lang is also pretty cool! He has worked and knows everyone, so it’s always nice to hear his stories.
MP: Jason Orme (Alanis Morissette’s guitarist). A fantastic musician and over-all very cool guy. It was an absolute honor to work with him and I can’t wait to work with him again.
CH: Nicolas Bastos Drummer of Dagoba.
New Band You’d Recommend:
MP: Pastel Felt. Their music is upbeat and hypnotic. Lots of reverb.
CH: Battle Beast
TGC : I have no idea ! I haven’t had the time to check anyone out really. If I am not playing or writing, I prefer silence… So I don’t know what’s new…
Opening For This Band Would Be Ideal:
TGC: Brody Dalle, Foo Fighters, Dead Sara… I think Tarah Who? would fit the bill.
MP: Foo Fighters.
Place You’d Most Like To Tour:
MP: Paris! I hear the bars and clubs get really rowdy with rock acts.
TGC : Ha ! Matt, Yes and no… Bars and clubs can indeed be really cool,and fun venues but it’s not always the case ! Just like everywhere, you need a good following and depending on the bar or venue, you can’t be too loud… ! Which is not ideal for us.. !
I love touring. I could and would tour anywhere. I haven’t played in Japan or Australia yet, I am curious to see how the music scene is, there for us.
Quote That You’d Like To Pass On To Readers:
MP: Be yourself, love yourself, do your absolute best and most importantly be happy!
CH: Do what you want to do
TGC: Love yourself and love each other. Too much time is wasted on bullshit.
Reason For The Title Of Your Recent/Forthcoming Release:
TGC: We have just released an EP called “Half Middle Child Syndrome”. I have two brothers and when I meet people I often hear “Aaah you’re the middle child”. I started looking into it, because I had never heard such a thing before, and I found it pretty funny. I do have two brothers, I have an older brother and a half little brother, but I don’t think I have that syndrome that I have been reading about. We haven’t been raised together with our little brother .. so I don’t think the “symptoms” are that apparent for me;)
See Us Live At:
CH: October 28th in Santa Ana, CA
TGC : Yes, our next show is on October 28th. After that, we are going to be focusing on our next ep .A tour is planned for April 2018, and more dates in Europe next summer.
The Old Days Of Music Were Better Than Those Current, do you agree:
MP: Well, we had some great adventures back in the day but there is nothing compared to the invaluable social media that is available these days making promoting so easy.
TGC: I don’t agree for Tarah Who? If you are looking or hoping to get signed. Then YES , I agree. If you are, like us, independent and want to stay this way, then … you are totally fine. This is THE BEST time to be in music. Social media helps you to be out there, in contact with your fans, and make things happen for yourself. It is a lot of work, but you can do it all on your own , and exactly how you want it! Just be creative!
MP: We are thinking of making a portrait of Tarah on black velvet…joking of course. Nothing too out of the ordinary right now but we could find something crazy to sell in the future!
TGC: Ha! Matt! Gosh I hope not! Right now, everything is pretty standard but I do have things happening in the near future. Follow us and you will know about our upcoming unusual merch!
Variations You’d Like To Do On Any Of Your Songs:
MP: An acoustic version of Rainy Day would sound awesome and I actually think we might be doing something like that soon….
TGC: An acoustic album is in the works, and currently, our live shows differ from the albums. Chech us out live, you’ll see, it’s a lot of fun!
What Do Your Fans Mean To You:
MP: Hey, our fans are everything. It really gets me going to see them bobbing up and down to the music. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know a few of them. Thank you guys(our fans), we love you!!
CH: A lot, we can do music thanks to them
TGC: Fans are the reason why we keep on playing live. We make music thinking of who we are going to appeal to, and who we are going to inspire. When the message is out there and people respond, fans are dancing, singing along, and having a good time, it is the best reward, an artist can get. Do this worldwide, in different countries, different cultures and get the same response from people, you know you are doing something right, and you just want to keep doing it. Fans are the reason for everything.
X-rays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries:
TGC: I need a lot of massages! Being a musician, touring, writing, promoting, is very physical. Deep tissue massages are the best!
MP: No need. Jameson whiskey cures all on stage injuries.
CH: some energy drinks
You’re late for a show, who’s fault is it:
MP: Tarah because she gave us the wrong set time. Haha.
CH: the car lol
TGC: Matt: MEAN! You know this won’t happen. We did have a gig a SF, where the booker had forgotten about us! Luckily we still got to play and got extra cash! Coralie is right, The car might be an issue sometimes! Matt’s battery died before a show in Long Beach, Should I mention who’s fault it was Matt?;)
To be fair, Matt and Coralie are ALWAYS on time. Which is kind of unbelievable, but it’s really nice to have band mates that are so dedicated and on the ball! No.. If we are late to a show and Matt is driving… THIS is why!!! 😉
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band:
MP: A Jaguar. Fierce yet beautiful.
