My name is Mark Tara and I'm a LGBT Content Creator.
In the final analysis, Tara is a masterful musical storyteller with a message. This album, like the previous one Different Love flows in movements like a symphony does.
The title track is written brilliantly and makes you feel happy from the first note. The lyrics here are the truth, crisp as Canadian ale.
Mark Tara has big hair ...and a big heart!
Fresh spirited, original songwriting. Versatile and moving.The future of Canadian pop music.
Marching to the tune of its own theme song Different Love by Mark Tara gets Pride Week off to a colourful start.
Up-tempo, Dance-Pop track has been relaunched with a more focused campaign behind it.
Pride Toronto has chosen an official song this year... DIFFERENT LOVE co-written by Mark Tara.
The song [ Different Love ] is about love in all forms", says Mark. "It's very fitting that this song has been embraced by the Pride committee, whose chosen theme this year is Love.
Mark's music is modernly balanced and his vocals are somewhat of a mix between PRINCE and something off a hip Dance record; but mostly Mark shows great promise and chart-bound visions!
Mark Tara's philosophy is a simple one: Love and believe in yourself. Everything else - including having a Donna Summer song on your own first CD - will follow... By the way, that CD is called DIFFERENT LOVE.
