Female Metal Guitarist/Vocalist Tara Lynch to Release Debut Album EVIL ENOUGH 4/13
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. Tara will be releasing her debut album "Evil Enough" this April on Friday the 13th.
"Evil Enough" is a melodic metal album featuring Tara Lynch on all guitars and vocals along with an all-star lineup of guest performances by Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath/Dio), Tony MacAlpine (solo/Planet X), Phil Soussan (Ozzy/Billy Idol), Mark Boals (Dokken/Yngwie Malmsteen), Brent Woods (Vince Neil/Sebastian Bach), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper) and Björn Englen (Quiet Riot/Yngwie Malmsteen). "Evil Enough" is produced by Brent Woods. All words and music written by Tara Lynch.
Says Tara, "The entire 'Evil Enough' album is a musical autobiography. Very often, the term 'blood, sweat and tears' is used as a metaphor to describe the work one puts in to something that they are 110% invested in. This would be an accurate metaphor where I am concerned. It has been a tremendously emotional journey into my own soul in order to both write the lyrics that explain my experiences, as well as write the melodies to convey the feelings involved within each experience."
Primarily self-taught, Tara played both electric and acoustic guitar and wrote songs in her childhood, picking up the bass, drums and piano along the way. Very serious about her musicianship and the unending desire to improve, Tara has personally studied with Steve Vai (Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Björn Englen (Quiet Riot/Yngwie Malmsteen) and Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater).
