Tara Mathew: He Said She Said (single)

~ Wednesday, 11 August 2010
Canadian born songstress Tara Mathew has a big voice that fluctuates somewhere between Anastacia and Whitney Houston with a real soulful quality. Sadly though her songwriting talents don't match her voice. He Said She Said is a truly awful piece of work with cliche ridden lyrics which sounds like it was recorded and mixed by a complete novice. Her press description of this song as R'n'B is far wide of the mark. This is puerile mechanical dance pop with no redeeming qualities.

A listen to her debut album Individuality just confirms the lack of songwriting talent. She has the voice but that is it. With a good songwriter on board and a producer who actually knows what they are doing she could be a name to reckon with.
