As a biography, Tamar Kaprelian is a 22-year-old singer/songwriter who was born in Scottsdale, Arizona. She was brought up in both Georgia and California and has always had music as a part of her life.

Musically, she has been writing songs as long as she can remember, influenced as a kid by classic Disney films, but her true love of music came about when she discovered Billy Joel and Paul McCartney.

So just how was she discovered? You know that fabulous band known as OneRepublic? Well they gave Tamar an opportunity after she entered a contest to cover OneRepublic’s smash hit “Apologize” online. She was chosen as the winner of the contest. Even cooler is that the band chose HER as the winner. With just that contest win, Tamar’s entry received over 3 million views on YouTube. Oh the power of the Internet!

For those of you who are fans of MTV’s The Hill’s you may recognize the song called “New Day”. It was featured on the Season Five finale.

It was also the theme song for Feeding America’s Drive Out Hunger Tour where Tamar performed in over 30 cities in 30 days in support of the organization.

Tamar Kaprelian is set to release her Interscope Records debut next year with songs co-written by OneRepublic’s Brent Kutzle and Ryan Tedder, Evanescence’s Ben Moody and David Hodges, Kara Dioguardi and many others. Ummm, amazing talent to back her up, I’d say!

About her upcoming debut album, Tamar calls it a “coming-of-age record that chronicles her life, relationships, and her utter determination to create an album that is real and true to herself, both personally and artistically.” With Ryan Tedder on board as well as the other talented songwriters and musicians, Kaprelian is sure to garner much attention. She already won me over!
