Out of the heart of New York City, Tara Hack always knew that she wanted to be a musician and, from early on, she created and honed her craft. Springing up in the greatest city in the world playing with MUNY, the Musicians Under New York program by the MTA, Tara narrates the 8 million different stories passing by each day… with a unique sound that can only be described as Manhattan.
Her music is the hustle, bustle, and struggle that we all go through daily, just to see the sunset over that beautiful skyline.
Known for her breathtaking acoustic performances in Penn Station and Atlantic Terminal, her next project promises to delve into the beautiful soul that is New York, and more so, the world.
“… she will take the world by storm, by combination of her beautiful voice and musical talent… She has a beautiful heart.“
At the age of 18, Tara co-wrote a song entitled “Saya Tidak Bersalah” (I’m Not Guilty) about an Australian woman, Schapelle Corby, who was wrongfully imprisoned in Indonesia. The song quickly gained international airplay and the notice of Schapelle’s top supporters including her and her family. The song recieved radio airplay and was featured in The Sydney Morning Herald, Brisbane Times, and The Age of Melbourne. Australian radio personality, Richard Duncan, said about Tara Hack, “I believe she will take the world by storm, by combination of her beautiful voice and musical talent… She has a beautiful heart.”
Back in the United States the song was played on various college radio stations, including the University of Rhode Island and University of Colorado @ Boulder, where Tara was asked to play at the Conference of World Affairs. Tara continued her humanitarian efforts by penning another song entitled “She Falls Down.” This song, aiming to raise awareness at the severity of domestic violence in society, landed her as the background music in a public service announcement in Chicago.
Tara plans to continue putting out the soul of New York in musical form while also continuing to raise awareness towards humanitarian causes and injustices committed throughout the world.
