New Live Video for ‘Angel’ Out Now on Youtube

‘Angel’ was written in 2009 by Tara Timberman (Metal Mother), and was recorded on October 10th, 2018. Please watch, like, comment, sunbscribe, and share… if you feel so inclined.

‘Angel’ was one of the first songs I wrote when I began making music in 2009. The song never seemed to fit on any of my albums, and today it stands on it’s own within my personal story of songwriting. ‘Angel‘ was written about a dear friend named Sokhak, who came and left my life in a flash. He was a crazy magnetic human I thought could accomplish anything, with an infectious lust for life that brought energy everywhere he went. Just months after I meet him, he drowned in the ocean in a freak accident. His body was never recovered. When our beloveds die unexpectedly, we grasp for answers and often turn to spiritual dimensions in hopes to connect with them. We tell ourselves, it was “just their time”, or if we believe in the afterlife, “they were more useful on the other side”. We do what we can to keep them alive through stories, songs, and prayers, and we attempt to honor their lives through our passion in grief. We hope to stay close to them as the memories grow distant, while the cycles of life, death, and renewal relentlessly remind us of the temporal nature of each breath. This song was written from that rememberence.

New Song and Video ‘Everybody Has To Say Goodbye’

This song was written a few years back and was supposed to be on the Pagan Jazz EP, however it did not get done cookin in time. So here it is now, and what an ever more fitting time it is…

‘Everybody Has To Say Goodbye’ was written, produced, and recorded by myself (Tara Timberman), and it was mixed by Ryan MacGilvrey. The lasso dancer in the video is the inimitable Eleanor Powell. Thanks for listening!

Watch The New Music Video For ‘Pris’, Created and Directed By Chloe Feller


“The overarching narrative for this video is bearing witness to the Martyr’s transformation into Sainthood. The video serves as a metaphor for the positions women are relegated to in relationships; how we often put all of ourselves into another person and tend to carry the burden of bearing the entirety of the relationship’s emotional weight, sometimes losing ourselves (or our minds) in the process. This is worsened by the fact that these efforts often go unrecognized, but this video offers an alternative to this narrative, one in which woman is rewarded for her efforts through the ascension to glory, to sainthood.” – Chloe Feller (Director) 

A message from Metal Mother : “When Chloe approached me with the idea for this video, I had no idea executing the concept would hit me like it did. To even admit to myself (let alone publicly) that my own maternal instincts to take care of the men have been a source of my suffering has been extremely difficult, because not can it appear as weakness and foolishness, but also because it betrays those very same maternal instincts – in not protecting the men I love. For her to offer this very blatant role was a little scary – but in the last couple years I’ve become painfully aware of how important it is to give voice to the very real effect that toxic masculinity has had on woman, and how patriarchy and male dominance has silenced and weakened us for thousands of years and continues to do so. But that time is coming to an end and it’s our intention for this video to serve as a ritual for not only ourselves in our own struggles but hopefully for the universal power of the divine feminine to truly rise into equality in Power.”
