I'm Antares, but you can call me Tara. I'm a singer-songwriter making acoustic pop-folk-rock and... well, listen to the music, you'll get the idea. :)
Why this name?
"Antares" is my real-life, parents-given, on-the-birth-certificate first name. It's also a star in the Scorpio constellation. "J" is my middle initial, stands for Janeva. "B" is my last initial. Pretty simple, eh?
Do you play live?
I play every once in a while at the Java, Juice and Art Cafe in Williamsport, PA, and at various open mic nights around the area. I also fill in during breaks for bands at Hull's Landing in Muncy on Wednesday nights. Hoping to get some more gigs soon.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It makes access to new music much easier. That's a good thing. :)
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Well, that depends now.. I don't know. If it's one of the labels that sued my pants off for file-sharing last year, maybe not. :)
Band History:
Not much to say in the way of history. Music is my life and who I am, I just had to learn to play guitar, and here I am.
Your influences?
Michelle Branch, Hanson, Jewel, Joni Mitchell, Sheryl Crow, Vanessa Carlton
Favorite spot?
Niagara Falls. Most beautiful place on the planet, hands down.
Equipment used:
I have a Squier acoustic guitar and a Dean acoustic-electric, a Shure SM57 microphone and various home-recording programs.
Anything else...?
Check me out on MySpace!
and if you're interested in all the personal crap I babble about every once in a while there's my LiveJournal.
