Sootara is a singer and songwriter with a unique way of writing and viewing the world. She does not write using an instrument, rather the songs come to her and she records them vocally, working with them in this way .
Her new debut CD, Allies of the Heart, is immensely musical, inspiring and uplifting. Musical influences range from Kate Bush to Joni Mitchel and Laura Nyro; to Ambrosia and Sarah Brightman – some for their writing and artistry, some for their vocal capability.
Sootara sought out Joe Puerta of Ambrosia and Bruce Hornsby and the Range fame, to produce her album.
