Self-proclaimed “diva folk” singer-songwriter Tara Velarde has been preparing for this moment for years, and on May 17 she’ll celebrate the release of her new EP ‘Rise.’ After trickling out a few of the record’s songs, you’ll finally be able to hear ‘Rise’—called as such “because there are a lot of reoccurring themes of personal growth," she tells. "This is me accepting and embracing my own power.”—in its entirety. Recorded at The Rye Room, ‘Rise’ shows off the multifaceted and talented Velarde through soulful R&B, powerful blues and delicate folk. For fans of Emily King, Brandi Carlile and Ingrid Michaelson, listen to the EP's latest single below and don’t miss the quirky pop of openers There Is No Mountain at 8:30pm but stay to dance with the funky roots rock of Far Out West at 10:30pm.
