Here's to Hindsight
Originally from the east Tennessee outpost of Greeneville and currently based in New York City, singer/songwriter/author/speaker Tara Leigh Cobble launches into bold new territory with a dual book-and-album release. The two projects fit seamlessly together, effectively diversifying the landscape of TLC's career and showcasing her maturity as a wordsmith and siren. From the publishers of RELEVANT and RADIANT magazines comes TLC's first book, Here's to Hindsight: Letters to My Former Self, a spiritual memoir that has already prompted reviewers to hail her as the "female Donald Miller." Sitting alongside the book is TLC's fourth full-length album, Here's to Hindsight, filled with sweeping melodies and ambient guitars. The 12 gems were produced by Stephen Gause (Derek Webb, Sandra McCracken) and Donnie Boutwell (Caedmon's Call, Randall Goodgame) and are unquestionably her best work yet. The lyrical depth and riveting vocals are matched by the impeccable performances of Matt Wertz, Josh Wilson, Dave Barnes, Gabe Scott, and Andy Osenga of Caedmon's Call; each player infusing the tracks with fluid precision. Since making the leap from college student to full-time touring musician six years ago, TLC has played in 40 states through the course of 15 national tours, throwing the acoustic guitar in the back seat, and putting over 500,000 miles on her trusted Toyota Camry. Her phenomenal ability to disarm any audience with her quick wit and engaging stage presence has cast a lasting impression amongst fans and critics alike, all staking the claim: Tara Leigh Cobble is an astounding talent on the rise.
