Tara Jam Shares Soothing Piano Ballad “Daily Dose“


Apr 1, 2021

Over the past months, singer, songwriter and director Tara Jam has kickstarted her career in music with a series of intriguing singles, always accompanied with impressive shoots and music videos, something that led to a nomination for a “Best Canadian Independent Music Video” award. Releasing music independently, Tara Jam has already accumulated over 650k collective views on Youtube and 500k streams on Spotify, on top of charting on Amazing Radio UK and being played on over 30 radio stations.

Now, following pop-trap anthem “Motion Sickness” and 80s inspired bop “Invade My Space,” Tara Jam is showcasing her versatility once again with “Daily Dose,” an impactful and soothing ballad. Driven by smooth piano chords under Tara Jam’s lively vocal performance, “Daily Dose” starts slow, before the arrangement picks up the pace with the help of string melodies and stunning vocal harmonies.

“’Daily Dose’ is a track that came to me at 4am one morning when I was soothing my sleeplessness with my normal cure of playing piano,” says Tara Jam about the tune. “I was thinking about the universal pain we all experience as humans and the different ways we self-medicate. Life is incredibly beautiful but it also holds damage, inconsistency, and confusion.”

“Despite everyone sharing these sentiments of pain, we are never really ‘taught’ how to communicate or transmute it in safe and supported ways, so we opt for easy fixes: pills, alcohol, relationships and lifestyles that all serve as band-aids for the pain we feel deep within our core. This is the exact process that I wanted to write about and indulge in emotionally. It’s about the recognized and repeated destructive behaviours that feel impossible to break since they have been so deeply embedded into our minds and actions. But with all pain, we all hold the power and ability to truly self-examine and heal.”

“I would hope this could inspire others to be soft with themselves when they are processing their hurt and trying to overcome whatever is troubling them, knowing that there is an abundance of sources of joy and release that they may access.”
