Bio

With a certain raspy-innocence to her vocals, Australian singer-songwriter Tasha Zappala unlocks a raw mixture of post-folk blues that synthesizes the atmosphere of a local coffee shop where the lighting is warm & the ambiance is nothing short of enticing. Her intense gypsy-folk melodies will at one moment materialize into dainty falsettos, and at the next into a throaty, growling chest tone. An edge and a gritty presence, Zappala weaves abstracted tales of foggy memories and days adrift.

I love it when keys are used in such a simple yet effective way. But there's a lot more in here too. It's a stunning package of assorted delights!

You brew this sort of dark, interesting and sexy essence that carries at a steady but really pleasant pace.

The Intro of this track definitely invites you in. This is so great, I love how your vocals sit in this track and your tone is really nice, I like it a lot! Interesting instrumentation here too all pinned down by this moving progression. Keep Killing it!
