Tara Jane O'Neil: Sirena b/w Rainbow Connection
Once upon a time Tara Jane ONeil mused that a 7 inch is the perfect venue for pop music, a place for light hearted documentation. After long travels and many collaborations, she banded together a group of friends to record two sweet singles from a vault of songs she's performed over the years, and she called the album "Connections" (IPU136). The first solo recordings from ONeil since her critically acclaimed release A Ways Away (KLP207) in 2009, "Connections" features "Sirena," the mesmerizing retelling of the Spanish Folk Tale in which a girl who disobeys her mother is turned into a mermaid, and "The Rainbow Connection" a tender rendition of the classic children's song.

Tara Jane O’Neil and Nikaido Kazumi spent two years turning the recordings of 4 days into gorgeous intuitive guitar and voice duets that create a collection of orchestral collage songs which are truly a unique delight for the ears.
Tara Jane O'Neil: A Ways Away
The work of Tara Jane ONeil has always innately crossed genres and boundaries - like several genies emerging from a single lamp. Every singer wants to be a painter, every guitarist a singer, every songwriter a poet and every producer an alchemist. ONeil is skilled at all these things and on A Ways Away [KLP207], her fifth album and first for K, she has wielded all of her powers. A Ways Away is a song cycle, generous and concise, direct and uncompromising.
