Tarra Layne partners with The Campaign to Change Direction and signs with TalentPlus Entertainment

Tarra Layne, from Season 11 of NBC’s The Voice and featured voice of Mattel for “Welcome to Monster High” and Barbie, returns to Nashville, launches new partnership with The Campaign to Change Direction, and signs with TalentPlus Entertainment Agency.

After a few years exploring her artistry in Los Angeles, Layne has signed with Women’s Owned agency TalentPlus Entertainment. “Tarra is the pinnacle of a strong female lead, helping to shape the future of the entertainment industry,” comments Ciara Brewer, Director of Business Development for TalentPlus Entertainment. “After watching her rock the stage at the Heritage and Freedom Festival this year, opening for Jerrod Niemann, with a vivacious stage-presence, sultry vocals, and genre-bending repertoire in her handcrafted sparkly-red cowgirl boots, we knew we wanted to collaborate with her.” TalentPlus will be representing Tarra Layne in the US and abroad for live performances and events.

Layne is back in Nashville and redefining what it means to be a female country artist. Prior to moving to LA, Layne lost her boyfriend to mental illness, which has had a lasting impact on her and her music. She comments that "I have not yet had the opportunity, or wanted to publicly share my story relating to mental illness until now. I knew that one day, I would find the courage to open up and become involved with an organization that spreads awareness of the worldwide epidemic and other issues including but not limited to substance abuse, personality disorders, and depression across a spectrum.” Layne announces that she will be The Campaign To Change Direction’s newest spokesperson, alongside artists and influencers like Chris Stapleton and Michelle Obama to spread the 5 Signs of Emotional Suffering. “It is a global crisis and I wish to do everything in my power to help the cause."

Over the next several months, Layne will be featuring live acoustic performances through Facebook, with selected musicians from Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and Nashville, to promote The Campaign to Change Direction. Her fundraising goal is  $20,000.

Layne is in the process of recording several new projects slated to release in early 2019.

About Tarra Layne

Tarra’s music resides in a place where Grace Potter, Amy Winehouse, and Gretchen Wilson collide – where gritty, care-free, home-grown soul meets sultry pop-rock ‘n roll. Combining her heavy 90s R&B upbringing with a love for rock and blues, Layne is uprooting and constructing a style of her own. It has been referred to as “Funktry” due to her big soulful timbre, southern attitude, and contemporary twist.

Layne’s unique sound landed her a spot on Season 11 of NBC’s The Voice in 2016, earning her coaching from Blake Shelton and Bette Midler. Since her debut on The Voice, Layne has continued to play notable festivals and venues around the US and forged a licensing agreement with Mattel. She can be heard as the singing voice of Ari Hauntington, the ghostly pop star in “Welcome To Monster High” as well as the voice of Barbie.

Tarra Layne’s third-coming EP ‘Once You Go Red…’ featuring her roof-blowing single ‘Cherry Moonshine’ is just the beginning of a new musical journey for all to experience. Her lead song has earned her a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Female Vocal as well as a place on the Hot 100 Unsigned Artists list in Music Connection’s 37th Anniversary Edition. She celebrated the EP’s release during PBR’s Cowboy Spring Break at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, performing alongside Universal recording artists Lauren Alaina, Cassadee Pope, Gary Allan, and The Band Perry – to name a few.
