A Change of Pace...Tamar

When you think of the current pop music world, young female singer-songwriters are cleaning up shop.

Sara Bareilles and Colbie Caillat are among the new breed and Tamar intends to be the next in line.

Backed by other talented musicians (such as some of my favorites including David Hodges), Tamar intends to release music with Interscope Records in the future.

She writes catchy songs like "New Day" which has earned over 500,000 plays to date on her Myspace.

Weirdly, the song reminds me of Paula Abdul's Promise of a New Day (at least in the chorus of the song...oh yeah, I went there).

She has been compared to a female version of Coldplay mixed with a female version of The Fray.

Based on their successes, Tamar should find herself a perfect spot on adult top 40 radio.

No word on when her debut comes out, but it should hopefully come soon.

You ought to see the videos for New Day and Purified.

And here's a live performance of Returning to Sand with David Hodges.
