We had the good fortune of connecting with Tara George and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tara, what’s your definition for success?
I’ve come to realize that as long as you are happy doing what you love, then you are successful. You define what success is not people around you. Dreaming big is beautiful, but even if things do not get as big as I have pictured them, I will still be happy and successful because I absolutely love what I do at any level.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have been singing since I was little. Performed all over the U.S. and recorded most of my music with my brother. I eventually moved to LA and started taking my acting seriously. I fell in love. With those two combined music and acting became all I wanted to do. The hustler in me grew in LA. Working multiple jobs, struggling, and becoming an adult made my music and my work as an actor even more meaningful. Thats when every little thing i booked became a celebration. I decided success to me was to continue doing what I love. When you are true to yourself people admire that. That is where i get my success. Im relatable, I talk about real things, im human, opinionated and not afraid. People watch and listen to what I create because of that. Even during a pandemic i managed to work on some really awesome projects. “Edible” a short film that is bringing so many things to light in a comedic but heart warming way. I got to dress up as A cop in Lady Gaga’s 911 music video, which was such a cool experience. I dubbed a voice on the first ever Netflix Egyptian Series “Paranormal”. I also released two songs in 2020 “Rise” and “Changes” both were written during the worst parts of the pandemic. It was my way of dealing with everything. I am working and creating no matter what happens around me because I realized how much art is needed to stay sane in this world.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First we would go get brunch at my favorite Noho spot City Kitchen. After all the mimosas, we would Lyft or Uber (drink responsibly 🙂 to Surf Rider Beach in Malibu stay there to watch the sunset. Then off to MoonShadows for some cocktails and appetizers. Ast but not least drive up to the Griffith Observatory, just cause Cali Baby ❤️

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My brother has always supported me and my music career. Most of my music has been produced by him. He is a super talent and deserves all the shine he gets. @TonyK (instagram)
