Tara Jane O'Neil

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tara Jane O’Neil creates melodic and experimental music under her own name and in collaboration with other artists, bands, and filmmakers. Her work innately crosses genres and boundaries — drawings that morph from natural forms to linear abstractions, melodic songcraft melded with experimental noise. Live performances range from solo construction to large ensemble improvisation. Dance, film and theater scores accompany the work, each telling the story in a dialect all their own. Though they spring from the same source, each piece takes a distinct form — several genies emerging from a single lamp.
