"When you've been touched by music, it becomes a part of you that cannot be muted."-Tarah Jaye
Despite being put on hold numerous times, music kept finding its way back to her. Tarah Mannery, a.k.a. Tarah Jaye, was born and raised in Mississippi, the “Home of the Blues”, with music deeply rooted in her spirit. An early interest in the piano is what started this compelling journey. Tarah began piano lessons as a child, but her teacher’s “finger slapping” techniques clashed with her easy-going learning style. So, she quit lessons but taught herself how to play. By the age of 13, she had become the temporary pianist for a small church located in Jackson, MS. This soon evolved into a love for the flute, which she became very proficient and continued to nurture up until her graduation from Jackson State University (Jackson, MS). Tarah was rewarded with many accolades and positions throughout her High School and College years such as City and State First Chair player, Section Leader, and Drum Major. (Concert, Marching, and Jazz Bands). Because Tarah’s love for music was just as strong as her passion to help people, she put music on the shelf to pursue a career in medicine as an Occupational Therapist.
Many years later, she was thrusted back into music after managing her ex-husband's band, Eclectik Soul, which she was very instrumental in the production of 3 successful albums. Tarah was making some major moves with the band until they seperated in 2010. Ever since then the longing to have music in her life continued with a vengeance. She started slowly piecing music equipment together and creating beats and music until she came up with a new hit song called, "Your Love" which was written, produced, and sung by her. "Your Love" was released on February 29, 2020. Tarah Jaye's new album, "Love, Loss, & Liberty" is set to be released in Spring 2022!
