Harboring a collection of deep and brilliant songs, New Jersey native Tara Dente and her five backing members showcase meaty, juicy Americana that hits you between the eyes with its authenticity and power, garnished with folk-flavor. With a heartland attitude and outlook, and a voice that offers comfort, her masterfully written and executed songs vary in influences from her early years surrounded by the sound of Celtic and church hymns, to her self-guided tour through American vernacular music.

“This crew came from Asbury Park to record in Virginia and they sound much more like roots rockers than Springsteen.” – Chris Spector, Midwest Records
