Takara is an Australian-born, Chicago-built, LA-based singer who possesses not only a powerful voice, but the ability to put her innermost thoughts and feelings into written word. It’s crazy to think she hasn’t been doing this her entire life, because the talent comes so naturally. She’s able to take painful situations and turn them into something beautiful – it’s not about the heartbreak, it’s about the idea you were ever able to love. To feel. The emptiness of loss is replaced with the reminder that to experience love at all is a gift. Pair this with beautiful pipes, and you’ve got the makings of a pop star.
