Tamar Berk Interview

Dr. J spoke with Tamar Berk in the evening on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 for Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative. Tamar spoke about the powerful new record Start at The End, her music career, songwriting and her approach to recording and producing her music.

Tamar shared some compelling insights as a songwriter in this interview! Anyone interested in the subject should explore her thoughts on the subject. Tamar was honest and remarkably introspective about how pain can be transformed into art through music. It was a real pleasure to speak with her about the music that she has made in her various music projects (Starball, Countdown, Pynnacles and Paradise to name a few). And it was a singular joy to talk to her about the exciting music that she has made in the past few years under her own name with The Restless Dreams of Youth (2021) and Start At The End (2022).

If you do not know these records, we highly recommend that you explore them. Tamar’s songs evokes The Spinanes/Rebecca Gates and Liz Phair but the musical space she surveys does not end there. She uses a variety of musical ideas to create a sound that paints with a rich pallet of color and texture. The music is infectious, passionate, personal and introspective in an adventure that leads the listener into a communal rather than singular experience. Start At The End is one of our favorite records of the year!

You can listen to Tamar’s music anywhere you stream but we recommend buying her excellent music at Bandcamp!
