Jesse Andrew Photography

Tara Dente is a folk/Americana guitarist and singer-songwriter from Asbury Park, New Jersey. She is an inventive songwriter with a powerful voice and heartfelt, whimsical stylings. Dente grew up around the sounds of Celtic music and spirituals, later latching on to folk and Americana music. Her finger-picking style is a cornerstone of her sound.

In her early years, she wrote original compositions for piano, and later in 2007 for voice and guitar. Nick Drake, Enya, The Shins, Johnny Cash and Brooke Fraser are among the influences which would help to shape her songwriting.

She's just released her third full-length album called Truth In The Mud, which features a group of musicians she lovingly calls “The Blind Pilots” when they join her on stage.
