Tara has been a member of Iridesense, one of Long Island’s premier power pop bands, for the last 25 years. With Iridesense she plays bass, sings and is one of two primary songwriters. Along with her brother Rick Eberle, husband Rich Drouin and Rob Viccari they released "A Trip Called Life" on Paradiddle Records and contributed songs to Bob Dylan Uncovered Vol. 1, Kinks UnKovered and Willie Nile Uncovered.
"Silver Lining" is a departure from her power pop sound into a more folk/acoustic sound and the songs are more introspective in nature. Her writing explores the meaning of life, the pursuit of happiness, unity in our changing world, as well as love and relationships.
The making of this album was her silver lining during the pandemic, so the title is appropriate. She's grateful to all her friends and family who contributed to making this album a reality.
