Biography

“MARK TARA has a flare for catchy melodic music. A perfect example of the kind of sharp, multicultural, urban pop that is ruling the Canadian music scene.”

Daniel Caudeiron - Contributing Editor
Billboard Magazine

“I remember being part of my school choir in grade four. We were singing Christmas Carols to a disco beat. At the end of the performance, we got a standing ovation! I remember thinking… I like this! Shallow… yes… but what can I say… I was young... Ha Ha Ha!”

Fast-forward some years later; Mark is a Music Major at the first public high school for the performing arts in Canada. The Etobicoke School of The Arts.
“In school I studied Violin, Music, Dance and Music Theatre.”

This multi-racial Canadian artist creates up-tempo dance music with a positive message. Mark’s message is most evident in the chorus of his song “BELIEVE”…

“BELIEVE IN YOU
BELIEVE IN ME
BELIEVE IN ALL
WE CAN BE
WE LIVE IN DAYS OF MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE
BELIEVE IN ME
BELIEVE IN YOU”

Having worked with renowned Canadian music personalities such as LIBERTY SILVER, THE BOOMTANG BOYS, LISA LOUGHEED and PATSY GALLANT Mark’s music holds an air of experience; while at the same time making you want to dance.

With his first album DIFFERENT LOVE released to the world, a national TV commercial on FOX, A&E, TBS Superstation, Showcase and TORONTO 1, Trinidad born Tara is ready to set his sights on his next album titled... “CRUCIFY”.

“DIFFERENT LOVE took me 2 years to complete and it features my favorite singer DONNA SUMMER! I still pinch myself about that one!”

It's just a matter of time before this provocative, thought provoking Canadian artist finds himself on the world stage.

Mark’s songs can be found on such CD compilations as “DANCE HIT INVASION”, “ALL STAR DANCE TOUR” and “DJ NETWORK”.

TORONTO
[Words and Music: Mark Tara – Additional words: Paul Antony and Darren Stewart-Jones]

[Chorus] Toronto
Toronto
I love ya Toronto
T.O.R.O.N.T.O
Toronto I love you so

[Chorus] Toronto
Toronto
I love ya Toronto
T.O.R.O.N.T.O
Toronto I love ya

[Verse 1]

Walkin’ down on Yonge St.
Can you feel the vibe
Different kind of love
It’s Toronto Pride

[Verse 2]

Let the rhythm move you
In the Summer heat
Jump up with a million friends
To the Caribana beat

[Chorus] Toronto
Toronto
I love ya Toronto
T.O.R.O.N.T.O
Toronto I love you so

[Chorus] Toronto
Toronto
I love ya Toronto
T.O.R.O.N.T.O
Toronto I love ya

[Verse 3]

Cursin’ to the island
On a sunny day
CN Tower and skyline
Take my breath away

[Verse 4]

Walkin’ down on Yonge St.
In a winter wonderland
There’s so much to see and do
With me and all the gang

[Spoken]

Get on the TTC
To the AGO
From the Zoo
To the ROM
Now here we go

Faces
Places
Streets ‘N flow
An Exciting ‘viting
Place To Go

[Chorus] Toronto
Toronto
I love ya Toronto
T.O.R.O.N.T.O
Toronto I love you so

[Chorus] Toronto
Toronto
I love ya Toronto
T.O.R.O.N.T.O
Toronto I love ya
