ABOUT TARA LYNCH

Tara Lynch (aka "gui-TARA") is a guitarist, composer, vocalist and songwriter who delivers heavy metal thunder with prominent melodic guitar riffs, shredding leads and powerhouse vocals. At the age of eleven, Tara began teaching herself how to play her older brother's electric guitar on the sneak whenever he was out for the day.  One day, he came home early and caught her in the act!  Instead of getting angry for breaking his "don't touch this guitar" rule, he was so impressed with her skills, he gave it to her.  And thus began Tara's love for guitar, her favorite and most accomplished of all instruments. Primarily self-taught, Tara continued to play both electric and acoustic guitar and write songs well into her adulthood, picking up the bass guitar, drums and piano along the way.  Very serious about her musicianship and the unending desire to improve, Tara has personally studied guitar withSteve Vai (Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake, Alcatrazz), drums with Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), bass with Björn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Soul Sign, Dio Disciples) and piano with Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, KISS, Alice Cooper, Yngwie Malmsteen, Billy Idol). In 2015, Tara accepted the invitation from Geert Fieuw (founder of Belgian band Beyond the Labyrinth) to write and perform guitar solos onBeyond the Labyrinth's fourth album, "The Art of Resilience," in stores now.  At the same time, Tara began writing for her own upcoming debut album, EVIL ENOUGH.
