Formerly the vocalist/rhythm guitarist with the Nottingham-based folk-rock band Hemlock, I have been performing as a solo artist under the stage name Taren since moving to MK last year. I'm currently recording my debut album on which I am currently playing all the parts myself. I'm looking to form a band to gig with and possibly record with.
You can listen to my free EP "Hidden in the Day" on my reverbnation account here: www.reverbnation/tarenfolk
I am also open to performing with other bands as a vocalist, preferably grunge or metal.
