When it comes to dance music, Tara McDonald is one of the most successful vocalists in the world, in fact, she has often been called ‘The Queen of Dance!’ In April, 2012, Tara signed a 2 album deal with Universal Record’s sub-label, Mercury, as a priority artist for Continental Europe. Her first album entitled I Like This Beat proves that Tara is much more than just a talented and unique vocalist, witnessed by the fact that she not only co-wrote but also executively produced the whole album from start to finish.
What may be surprising is that the album consists of two sides. With her roots firmly entrenched in dance music, one side of the album brings Tara back to the dance floor and comprises of collaborations with not only some of the most established names in this genre, but also the best of the new generation of upcoming DJ/producers. The other side is more experimental and shows Tara moving into electro and more radio friendly pop music which she showcases with the first and second singles Give Me More and Fix of You. It doesn’t matter which side you’re listening to, what is for sure is that Tara will impress you with her breathtaking vocal ability. Most notably, Tara has leant her vocals to Armand Van Helden’s world-wide smash ‘My My My‘ and has since collaborated with Axwell (of the Swedish House Mafia) on ‘Feel The Vibe’, with Todd Terry on ‘Get Down’ and David Guetta on ‘Delirious’ and ‘You’re Not Alone’, which featured on his Pop Life album.
