Tamar spent a part of her childhood in San Francisco with her family, and it was then that she was first introduced to rock, folk, blues and country music. These musical genres had a huge impact on her and at the age of 6 she already knew what she wanted to do with her life; it was then that she asked for a guitar. She has been investigating the wonders of that instrument, and of music in general, ever since.
Although she is, in many ways, very Israeli, Tamar also felt a strong connection to music from overseas, growing up with the tunes of Carole King, Ben Harper, Suzanne Vega, Jimmy Hendrix, The Cure, Ani Difranco, Eric Clapton and others. These influences made her feel like somewhat of an outsider on the Israeli scene, but despite these feelings, or perhaps thanks to them, she found her true self and brought these conflicts into her music. Tamar loves her home in Israel, but at the same time feels a citizen of the world and is eager to break boundaries and prejudices. “Music is universal. It belongs to all, it is not only another language, it is a translation, a map to our emotions, thoughts, feelings and dreams. A complex art, a mystery yet so direct it surprises me every time. When sound, notes and a genuine intention could be a simple reflection of our life and existence on this planet”.
