Born and raised in a small lakeside city in Ontario, Canada, Tara Henton has absorbed her father’s love for the iconic sounds of Nashville, combining her electric songwriting style and captivating vocals whilst maintaining an unmistakable Canadian country ‘twang’. Taking influence from the likes of Loretta Lynn and Merle Haggard, creating and performing music became a crucial part of Tara’s identity from an early age. This led to a Bachelor of Music degree from Queen’s University, a feature in a televised talent show in Nashville, and a finalist in the Kingston Country Singing Showdown (where the winner happened to be Avril Lavigne).
In 2021, Tara released her debut single “Now That You’re Gone” which gained international radio play and peaked at #4 in the UK iTunes Country chart. The song was also named a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest. Following, her second release “Wild Horse“, co-written with Kelly Williams, peaked at #2 in the UK Country iTunes Chart.
