Tarah Who?
Federal Circle of Shame
Tarah Who?, 2016

Federal Circle of ShameReleased on February 14, 2016, Federal Circle of Shame is the follow-up EP to Tarah Who?’s successful sophomore album, Little Out There. Front woman/lead vocalist Tarah Carpenter is candid and straightforward in explaining why the French LA-based punk rock band released the EP in a YouTube video titled, “Making of Federal Circle of Shame Teaser”: “After releasing my first album, I wrote more songs. I wanted to release those songs…so I recorded the second album!”

The 5-track EP stays true to the band’s signature style of taking their fans on an angsty, musical whirlwind of fast-paced, menacing guitars going head-to-head with high-powered, pounding drums. In the opening track, “Cough Drop,” Carpenter’s emotionally charged wails of “self destruction” throughout the song’s chorus paint an angry and chaotic backdrop for the heavy bass (played by Ash Orphan) and equally enraged drum instrumentals (played by Jo Ko). This continues in “Bitchcraft” and “Someone Else Will”—with the latter showcasing a distorted, 90s-grunge feel created by Carpenter’s hard-hitting guitar riffs.

The pace is slowed down dramatically when the listener reaches “14 Months” —a tune that repeats the line “it’s a great day at the beach” but is actually juxtaposed by Carpenter’s Alanis Morissette-inspired yodel and by Jo Ko’s commanding drums that take the lead in guiding the song’s overall dismal tune.

However, Tarah Who? picks up the pace once again with the closing track, “Kids Of Ireland.” No Celtic undertones will be found here but what fans can expect is what the band has become known for: unexpected lyrical content (“beautiful kids/…it’s time to wake up/I’m talking to you”) and as always, a high-powered, anthemic chorus.

Tracklist:

01. Cough Drop
02. Bitchcraft
03. Someone Else Will
04. 14 Months
05. Kids of Ireland

Tarah Who? is made up of Tarah G. Carpenter (vocals, guitar), Ash Orphan (bass) and Jo Ko (drums).

Tarah G. Carpenter Reveals Her Uncompromising Confrontation with Real Life and Music

Interview with Phil Cartwright, CEO, HorizonVU Music

The mind, soul, rock’n roll heart beat and operator behind ‘Tarah Who?’ is French / American Singer and Multi-Instrumentalist (drummer, guitarist & bassist) Tarah G. Carpenter. Born in Paris, France, Tarah got her first drum set at age 14. After a short stint of coming to the US to be a high school exchange student in Murray, Kentucky, she was unable to play drums & out of boredom she picked up the guitar & started writing songs as an outlet.

After playing in-and-out of bands around Paris on drums & bass for few years, Tarah got the desire to travel to Los Angeles to explore the music scene. With her bandmates back in Paris and on a last minute whim, Tarah answered an ad on Craigslist “looking for an artist to perform original songs at a warehouse Party Downtown”. When she, for the first time performed singing and playing guitar the audience response was so good that she decided she wanted to do her own music and started playing under the moniker ‘Tarah Who?’ immediately.

With true 90’s spirit, anthemic sing-a-long choruses, a punk edged energetic live show and a load of heart to back it up. Tarah’s song live and recorded jump out and grab at you to listen. The fact that she can rock the drums just hard as the guitar is enough to make any audience member or listener pay attention. Tarah’s been compared to everything from the female Pearl Jam to Sonic Youth, but regardless, Tarah G. Carpenter stands on her own and is someone you don’t want to miss.

Tarah’s song ‘In My Mind’ received an honorable mention for the world song contest by Billboard Magazine and ‘Worst to Come’ has had regular spins on WRCR Rockford, IL College Radio, as well as play on 89.4 FM Radio Libertaire. She has also been featured on numerous blogs including Ustream.tv, Revolutionthreesixty.com (’PEOPLE THAT MATTER’) and Thehangoutgroup.com

Tarah Who? has just released their new EP, “Federal Circle of Shame” available at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/federal-circle-of-shame-ep/id1083959696

HVUM: You are well-known amongst your peers for having a hard-edged DIY approach to your music career. Tell us what’s behind that.

Federal Circle of ShameTGC: I never really thought of it this way, really…

I started playing when I was 14 and I just kept on going. My approach to music or my career is more of a feeling. Does it feel right to follow this path? Or is it fair?

Things don’t always go as planned but you learn and keep going. You know better.

I have my own definition of DIY. I understand and use it more as Do it… Independently from the big labels that do everything for you. What I believe as an independent artist that may be called do it yourself is that you are not famous, but you still want to do and share your music. Why not? Just do it yourself. Don’t wait for the contract, you may not even want any of it after reading it. In that sense you are doing it yourself.

But it is really interesting when you meet other DIY artists. You become friends, and help each other out, tour together, exchange gear, or dates, musicians, studios, ideas and tips etc… It’s this sort of circle of friends, and family that you start building, with artists that are just like you, trying to break through.

017The hard part for a DIY is to stay true to yourself and what you believe in. If you are a DIY musician you are most likely broke or not very wealthy. It is important to not fall into the scams of pay to play gigs for instance. Talking to other bands or musicians is very important to get the best advice to meet your needs. (i.e., you may not have the cash for a recording studio, but need to record: ask around about the equipment you need for a home studio and learn how to do it yourself. Or maybe someone loves your project and would like to help out. The idea is: NOTHING gets in your way)

HVUM: You’ve been working a lot with bassist Ash Orphan. You two come from slightly different musical paths. What led you to work together and how does the collaboration show up in your music?

Ash Orphan

Ash Orphan

TGC: I have known Ash for five years now. We were playing in a project called LED. I was the drummer he was the bass player. I really enjoyed his approach to bass and it really inspired me in playing drums.

We started a side project together to explore the ideas that we had during the smoke breaks our bandmates had. Those ideas became the project we have today called Jane Gray Black Orphan.

At the time Ash was part of another band as well that was getting pretty popular and he didn’t want to start a new project. I really believed there was something to his touch and approach of the guitar now and I really liked his voice. Even though he said he didn’t want a band I kept asking for him to come over “to jam” but of course it all became more serious and before he knew it we were a new band! Now JGBO is a very serious project and we are both really proud of it!

Ash comes from a different musical background. He listens to the dark depressing songs that I usually change after 30 seconds of hearing. I think it’s called post-rock? Not my thing. We tried many times. I just can’t do it! Maybe in a few years!

I am more punk rock, grunge, rock… not pop rock… ROCK! So I enjoy playing with Ash because he writes melodies that inspire me to play grooves he doesn’t expect. It’s the combination of our two musical worlds, I think, that makes Jane Gray Black Orphan.

HVUM: You’re doing a combination of electric and acoustic shows these days. Do you like mixing it up?

TGC: I started Tarah Who? as a solo acoustic performer only because I didn’t have a band! I like playing the electric show better because I get to be loud, I have a lot of fun with the guys and I love the vibrations of the drums and bass and I get to scream as loud as I want!

IMG_1468It is interesting to play solo (or just with Ash but the idea is to play an acoustic set) because I have a different audience and people’s that can’t handle the electric show can appreciate the acoustic!

I hear it all: people that LOVE the electric show, others that are very surprised with the acoustic and could not imagine it but really enjoy it, others that prefer the acoustic etc..

The acoustic is more intimate but still very entertaining and both are a lot of fun. I feed of the audience’s energy so whether it’s an electric or acoustic event, if you’re into it, I’ll give you my best!

HVUM: What you do think each (electric and acoustic) presents you as a songwriter and guitarist?

TGC: I write ALL of my songs with an acoustic guitar. I think that the acoustic emphasizes the rhythmic parts I play.

My songwriting is very “drum” oriented. It doesn’t really follow any songwriting “rules” people may learn. I usually think of the drums first and whatever is fun to play I stick to.

The acoustic show is interesting because there are no drums and I have heard many times from the people that have only seen us electric, they can’t imagine an acoustic show. As of today no one has been disappointed!

So the acoustic definitely shows the rhythm of the songs and you can actually hear my vocals too!

For the electric shows…I think speed… Everything is played faster. Faster than the acoustic show and faster than the album. I think that’s why we started getting this punk label. I never intended to be in the punk scene. I just write what I want really and can’t define it. I have certain emotions while recording that requires a specific tempo. But once it’s out there, available to the world, the live show is something else! We want to have fun, and we want people to jump around and go crazy, so we intentionally play faster, and sometimes as fast as we can!

HVUM: Tell us about your gear setup for Tarah Who? And your acoustic performances.

TGC: Tarah Who? is meant to be a four piece band with a second guitar player, but until I find the “dude” we are a three piece. (booking@tarahwho.com if you are interested.)

Tarah Who?

Tarah Who?


We have the drums, very simple set up: Kick Snare, 2 toms and Floor Tom. 3 crashes, 1 ride, 1 china (essential!!) and HH. Soultone cymbals.

Bass: G&L 5 string bass, Big Muff- Electro Harmonix , EBSMulti Drive. Gallien Kruger Head , Form Factor CAB.

GTR: I have three different guitars and a spare because of my different tunings. On ALL of my guitars though, i have the Ernie Ball Not so slinky set of strings. A friend of mine introduced me to those strings a few years ago, i haven’t stopped buying them since.

Ampeg amp.

Acoustic GTR: my dream guitar is still at the store…I just haven’t had gathered the cash for it yet!

So I still use my old acoustic guitar, with Ernie Ball’s acoustic set. (Medium)
New Album: Barytone and Ernie Ball’s Barytone set. EBS Chorus and Distortion.
Vocals; Shure Beta 58 A.

HVUM: Apart from your own music, what artists are in the top three positions on your playlist these days?

TGC: I actually don’t listen to much music.

I spend my days rehearsing for Tarah Who? or Jane Gray Black Orphan. I also have another punk project with the bass and Barytone that I would like to work on more, so really, when I am done practicing the last thing I want to do is listen to anything.

I actually enjoy silence a lot, and if anything is playing, the people I am with, are usually playing it.

I have more apps on my phone than music, and the music I have is for work, demos: with a very loud metronome!

Little Out There

Tarah Who?
Little Out There
(A Diamond Heart Production, 2014)

Following their debut album, In A Rush, the French LA-based punk rock band Tarah Who? have released their sophomore album, Little Out There. The much-anticipated 11-track collection will no doubt take punk rock fans on an energetically angsty musical whirlwind with its fast-paced, riveting guitars, high-powered (and head-banging worthy!) drum solos. Little Out There captures to a “T” (for Tarah, pun intended) the powerfully emotive vocals of the trio’s multi-instrumentalist frontwoman, French/American singer Tarah G. Carpenter. (A true master of the drums, guitar and bass, fans will also hear Carpenter’s enthralling guitar skills on the latest release.)

As the opening track on Little Out There, “Worst To Come” showcases one of Tarah Who?’s greatest assets: Carpenter’s killer vocal range. With emotionally-charged wails, powerful groans and a hint of spiraling yodels (yes, yodels), Carpenter’s voice should be dubbed as the vocal lovechild of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and alternative rock queen Alanis Morissette. Comparisons of Carpenter’s vocals to Vedder’s voice are also apparent on the album’s closing track, “Burn that Shithole Down.” Still, the heavy bass and recklessly powerful drums also make “Worst To Come” a great opener for the band’s newest release.

But let it be noted: Little Out There is not just a compilation of screams and heavy basses. The theme of love also plays a central role throughout the album and is most apparent in the slower-paced track, “Human to Be” (“We can be ourselves/…Love, love, love, love”) and “Tear Apart” (“I love you, I love you/…I gave all I could”). Little Out There reaches a compelling musical climax with the track “Hear All Ears”—by far the most ballad-like title on the album. Far slower in tempo with a prominently melodic and soothing (yes, soothing) guitar throughout the track, its lyrical content runs deep; possessing a more revealing and probing nature—like one desperately attempting to crack the code of someone’s soul in order to understand their own (“Tell me what you’re hiding/ What’s your secret?/ And who’s the real you/ I know you have so much inside/ Just like I do”).

Still, with Little Out There, Tarah Who? stay true to their roots, whatever they maybe.

In an interview with the music blog, Revolution 360, Carpenter explains, “I usually say I’m rock, but people ask me what kind of rock? Truth is, I don’t even know! So far I have heard we are punk, grunge, indie, rock and alternative. I even heard “metal on the edge.” As long as we’re not called pop…I don’t really mind. But to me, it’s still just ROCK!”

And the proof is in the music.

Carpenter’s low, angsty vocals and pissed off yells in “Lower Your Tune” is reminiscent of Garbage’s Shirley Manson and Brody Dalle, respectively, while “Too Much Thinking” stands as a worthy successor to The Distillers’ “City Of Angels.”

With their hard-hitting guitar riffs, heavy pounding drums, a steady, slick and at times seductive bass (courtesy of the album’s bassist and drummer, Pilal), titles including “Down,” “Beautiful,” “Rainy Day” and “Lost ‘n’ Cold” create a punk, grunge, indie, alternative—ROCK!–world of musical drama that is a Little Out There.

Tracklist:

01. Worst to Come
02. Rainy Day
03. Human to Be
04. Too Much Thinking
05. Lower Your Tune
06. Lost ‘n’ Cold
07. Tear Apart
08. Beautiful
09. Here All Ears
10. Down
11. Burn that Shithole Down

Tarah Who? is made up of Tarah G. Carpenter (vocals, guitar), Pierre Gallotta (drums,bass, guitar).

She is follows photography, arts, fashion, and travel. Of course, she frequently attends different concerts and rock festivals.

Attention! New star on the stage!

Let me present a band that totally conquered my heart – Tarah Who! It is a band that consists of French citizens but these people can for sure be called big travelers- they are making records in LA, USA and give concerts all around Europe and the U.S.

What kind of style do they prefer? Rock-pure and unbeaten! I have had a big pleasure to listen to their records, but to see them live – twice in March 2012. I also had a unique opportunity to talk to members of the band a for HorizonVU Music! But let’s go step-by-step.

To begin with, Tarah Who?’s albums sound very confident and attract the listeners’ attention from the first second. I’ve enjoyed both their old tracks and new ones. They have very melodic songs, highly-professional and well-balanced sound, but what is really catchy about them is the voice of Tarah G., the lead singer and guitarist. Tarah G. has a incredibly strong vocals, real passion and energy about everything that she’s doing.

The band has recently gone through some changes – welcoming some new members adding fresh blood to their music. Talking about their music more

specifically, I’m recommending some songs that I found really catchy and interesting, especially for new-listeners. As for me, most of them are even in the list of my top tracks for this spring!

The song “In my Mind” that starts the album “In a Rush” helps us to understand what to expect from it: great sound, many hits and catchy melodies, energy, strong vocals and half an hour of rock pleasure! It is one of the top listened songs of Tarah Who? Another great surprise of this album is “Unbalanced” – the song that has its own style and rhythm. It is rather easy to remember the lyrics and melody so you can become its fan very fast. The top song of Tarah Who? is “In a Rush” the album’s namesake. You can already feel its importance.”Our Story” stands out. It is something more personal, even private. It is written in the style of country mixed with calm classical rock. I’d for sure recommend the last song on “In a Rush” album called “Happy” – it shows off the character and strong soul of this band.

As was mentioned before, I had managed to be present at two their recent concerts. The first one was at “L’OPA” Bastille where Tarah Who? played on the same stage with The Kennedys and Hannah Judson. It was a great performance with sound on max, so all listeners could enjoy the pure rock songs of this band. At the same time, a bit later, I was surprised at the other other concert where Tarah and Pilal (drummer in Tarah Who) played the same songs but in the unplugged version. I can say that both concerts were of the highest quality and totally satisfied my demans for music. I strongly believe, that both the electric and the acoustic versions are worthy of attention. The face and sense change according to the performance.

The interview that I made before one of the concerts was really very exciting: all members of the band are very pleasant, openhearted and open-minded. Each member already has years of experience, but still they are are kind and eager to communicate. I found out that the band is closely connected to another band called “So Was The Sun”-they share a guitarist (Palem). Tarah G. likes pure and old school rock like Foo Fighters. Today the members of the band are working to adapt as musicians to each other. They have rather different musical tastes, but they all share the objective of generating energetic, rock, “ I want us to have fun and our fans to party with us!”. It’s an interesting direction to go and one of their latest songs “Rainy Days” a great example of the unique collaboration of talented people and their ideas. Check out the vid.

At the end of the interview I asked each member of the band two words: one that they like and other they hate. Here’s the response that I got:
Tarah: 1.music/karma
2. impossible
Pilal: 1. Sun
2. Duty
Palem: 1. Sonic
2. Weakness
Sam: 1.Defeat
2. Particularly

I’m really pleased to announce to all fans of Tarah Who? as well as those who would like to explore this band are welcome to join the band in concert “In The Mood(‘s) for Rock” on 11th May! It will be a unique event with many bands to participate so I’d strongly encourage and recommend everyone to be there!!!

March 1 and the Benefit Concert for the Association Christina Noble! The night was staged at at Mc Bride’s Irish Pub in Paris’ 1st arrondissement and featured Hannah Judson, Etienne Rosas & Band, and Tarah Who? Proceeds went to benefit children in Vietnam andposter_CNCF_1_3_small Mongolia.

It was a great day, perfect for my first go at organizing a concert. From sun-up, I was pretty stressed and excited all at the same time. Stressed because I was worried sick about not being late, how it will go,what should I do to make it as good as possible, even what should I wear… And obviously excited because I knew everything will be awesome!

After making final arrangements and a quick set-up, the night kiched off with Hannah Judson. Hannah’s music and mellow voice guides you among her travels, her life and experiences. As evening moved to night, people gathered around – obviously delighted and charmed by her charisma. With Hannah you fly away as high and as far as her ballads can take you.
Then the change-over to Etienne Rosas & Band. The room was filled with their good cover vibes. From Richy Valens to The Beatles, you already knew the songs, just a matter of letting yourself go and roll with the rock. Etienne and his band are young, young but very talented and they
