Tarzie Warzie com­ing to town

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY JARRYD BARCA

Tara Wells, bet­ter known by her stage name ‘Tarzie Warzie’, is hold­ing an event this Satur­day, June 16 as part of her ‘I be­lieve’ mu­sic tour.

Tara is a singer-song­writer who cur­rently lives in Mel­bourne but grew up in Ruther­glen, vis­it­ing reg­u­larly over the years to play mu­sic.

Her gui­tar, ukulele, stomp box and singing skills will be tak­ing her all the way from Mel­bourne up to far North Queens­land, stop­ping at the Vic­to­ria Ho­tel in Ruther­glen this Satur­day night.

Tara is re­leas­ing a new sin­gle and rais­ing money and aware­ness for do­mes­tic vi­o­lence against women and men, to give peo­ple more re­sources to seek if they need help es­cap­ing un­healthy re­la­tion­ships or fam­ily vi­o­lence sit­u­a­tions.

Tara has been af­fected by these un­wanted con­di­tions and is us­ing her mu­sic tour as a plat­form to get the mes­sage out.

Rais­ing money for White Rib­bon Aus­tralia – a non for profit or­gan­i­sa­tion work­ing to end men’s vi­o­lence against women – am­bas­sador Rupin­der Kaur will be com­ing to speak on the night about do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and ways to both recog­nise and pre­vent it.

Tara be­gan teach­ing her­self gui­tar roughly eight years ago and al­ways had a love for mu­sic.

“I had al­ways loved mu­sic and en­joyed it so much that song writ­ing just came with it. I con­nect with mu­sic like so many peo­ple and was able to write songs to the tunes I’d come up with,” she told The Free Press.

“I was di­ag­nosed with rheuma­toid arthri­tis when I was 25 and I found song writ­ing and mu­sic to be very heal­ing and mo­ti­vat­ing for me.

“My chronic pain is­sues make me stop and think what is im­por­tant and what is not as I can no longer do ev­ery­thing I used to be able to.”

For this tour, Tara will be in­cor­po­rat­ing her own orig­i­nals around cover songs over a three-hour pe­riod.

The event will start at 6pm and end at 9pm, be­ing held over din­ner.

Book­ings are es­sen­tial to se­cure a seat in the din­ing room.

Tara will be col­lect­ing dona­tions on the evening, with half of the money raised by CD sales on the night be­ing do­nated.

The self-taught na­ture of her mu­sic is bound to leave au­di­ence mem­bers with a smile of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

Her new “I be­lieve” sin­gle has been re­leased on iTunes.

Lo­cal mu­sic sen­sa­tion Tara Wells will make a spe­cial ap­pear­ance in Ruther­glen this Satur­day.
