Tara Matthew

Tara Mathew might be making waves with her cover of 'Run' but it hasn't stopped her taking time out to chat to us about her love for music and plans for the future. With a voice in the same league Leona Lewis and Mariah Carey, Tara is most certainly one to watch.

Hello there little monster, what are you up to?

Preparing for a gig at the BBC Club in London next week and making a video.

So, tell me about what you're here to promote?

 My new single which will be released in August called "He Said She Said".

And if we didn't have any clue as to who you were, what should we be looking up on Google?

Search Tara Mathew and you'll see everything you need to know about me--like that I am from Canada and lived in India for many years. Of course everyone writes 'Matthews' so make sure you spell it right!

And as Jacko had the Moonwalk and Elvis had the snake hips, what do you have that makes you unique?

A pretty big vocal range of nearly 5 octaves – if that means anything to you!

Now, clearly we need to get to know each other more, so tell me an interesting fact about you that noone else knows?

 I can stick my fist in my mouth!

What song do you wish you'd written?

With You by Mariah Carey. Anything by Lauryn Hill

If I was contemplating coming to your show or sitting at home and TV, how would you convince me to come out?

I’ll buy you a drink when you get there!

And if you were to take me on a trip to your hometown, what would be the first place we'd go?

Hmmm...yeah...a town of 400 people has a TON of interesting things to see....where to begin! I think I'd take you to the lake.

What's the best prank you've ever pulled on someone?

When I was 18 or 19 my friend and I made prank calls to nearly every room in a hotel from our hotel room in the middle of the night. We were pretty bad and told each person something different--wake-up calls and all. We also evacuated the 3rd floor telling each room there was a fire. Unfortunately we got caught--not pretty.

And what's the most daring thing you've ever done? Please tell us how it ended up!

Definitely moving to India all alone for two years. Was the best decision of my life and I ended up staying much longer and getting married while I was there!

If you had to date a member of the same sex (or opposite sex if the case may be) who would it be? Mine would ALWAYS be Angelina Jolie.

 I've always loved Reese Witherspoon. She is just so dang cute and lovable!

Have you ever been naked in public? Elaborate.

 Only in nightmares that I recall!

Have you ever been arrested? Again, elaborate.

 Never more than a speeding ticket for this good girl!

Speaking of prison - if you were to send someone to prison for crimes against music, who would it be?

 I cringe when I hear the Macarena!

What were you doing last night at 11?

Watching back episodes of Project Catwalk online and contemplating a snack.
