One of the brightest emerging talents currently on our radar, Tara Jam just released her third single Daily Dose, and is showing no signs of slowing anytime soon. The singer-songwriter was recently nominated for a “Best Canadian Independent Music Video” award, while her music has already amassed over 650,000 views on Youtube and an impressive 500,000 streams on Spotify since her debut release back in late 2020.
Daily Dose, follows trap-pop crossover Motion Sickness and immersive 4-on-the-floor gem Invade My Space, and with all the buzz surrounding the rising artist’s projects it’s clear that Tara is living up to her name, with Tara meaning “star.” An immersive creative work, Daily Dose is driven by soothing piano chords and impactful string melodies, while Tara Jam’s vocal performance and harmonies keep the energy flowing throughout, making up for an impressive auditory result. As the artist explains about the song:
Tara explains: “Daily Dose is a track that came to me at 4 am one morning when I was soothing my sleeplessness with my normal cure of playing piano. I was thinking about the universal pain we all experience as humans and the different ways we self-medicate. Life is incredibly beautiful but it also holds damage, inconsistency, and confusion. Despite everyone sharing these sentiments of pain, we are never really ‘taught’ how to communicate or transmute it is safe and supported ways, so we opt for easy fixes: pills, alcohol, relationships, and lifestyles that all serve as band-aids for the pain we feel deep within our core. This is the exact process that I wanted to write about and indulges in emotionally. It’s about the recognized and repeated destructive behaviors that feel impossible to break since they have been so deeply embedded into our minds and actions. But with all pain, we all hold the power and ability to truly self-examine and heal.”
