Biography

It all started in 2009.  An adventurous road tripping journey to NYC to pursue a dream.  

Sure, Tali would sing songs back in high school, at home and in talent shows. It never occurred to her that a future in music might be just the perfect thing. Or maybe it seemed unfathomable at the time.

An interest in guitar playing lead to songwriting. And after receiving a master's in what felt like a stable and comfortable career path, an impulsive decision to drop everything and drive across the country for a less stable, more inspiring future felt like the right thing to do. 

Upon moving to NYC in 2009, Tali created a band and continued to focus on developing her unique style and signature sound.  It was not until 2012, after working with a wide variety of music professionals, that she had begun working closely with Berklee School of Music alumni.  Through this community, she was able to meet Michel Nasrallah (lead guitarist), Daniel Siles (drums/percussions) and later Rafael Russi (bass). With Steve Rodriguez (keys) coming on board, the group had finally begun to create the sound and energy that Tali had been seeking for so long.

Having just completed a North East tour this fall, the band is looking ahead at the next move. In the upcoming  months the group will release a music video and brief tour documentary showing some of the behind the scenes footage. In other news,  the band is looking forward to writing new material and scheduling a tour in the summer of 2014!

Lyrics

Goosebumps

Written By: Tali Ratzon

Getting the feel
Feeling that's real
A new sex appeal
I feel it all over my body

Yeah

Listen to sounds
Fly off the ground
Turn my head around to see if he's looking at me

Migrating tingles and shivers
My body quivers
Euphoria- uh
Migrating tingles and shivers
My body quivers
Euphoria- uh
(Physically turning me on)

Getting a kiss
A rub on the arm
Reacting to somebody's charm
It's inevitable, yeah

Goosebumps and chills make life so for real
It's human nature if you will
Whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh oh

A breeze on my neck
Ice on my skin
Committing a sin
It's like candy to a baby

Migrating tingles and shivers
My body quivers
Euphoria - uh
Migrating tingles and shivers
My body quivers
Euphoria - uh
Physically turning me on

Ooh ow
Give me the goosebumps right now
Ohh-kay
Any time of the day
Ohh no no no
when I feel it it's hard not to show
Whoa oh Whoa oh Whoa whoa oh

Bom bom badu dow beep bodow bow bow (2x)
Beep badu bop bah
Dom bom badu dow beep bodow bow bow
Shooby doo bop bop ba dah

Whoa oh whoa oh whoa whoa oh
Migrating tingles and shivers
My body quivers
Euphoria - uh

Getting the feel
Feeling that's real
A new sex appeal
I feel it all over my body

Goosebumps and chills make life so for real
I said Goosebumps and chills make life so for real whoa oh
I said Goosebumps and chills make life so for real yeahh
Goosebumps and chills make life so for real
whoa oh oh oh oh
