To be included in this competition at a special time when we are commemorating such a landmark anniversary for Armenia is an amazing privilege for me. I am so excited to be joining a very talented group of artists to represent Armenia and America, and to share a positive message about peace and unity with the audiences.

An Armenian Artist from America
Tamar Kaprelian is an Armenian-American singer and songwriter currently residing in the New York City, USA. With honest and uplifting songs, Tamar takes listeners on a journey across the arcs of relationships and personal growth.
Tamar’s interest in music began when she discovered the works of Billy Joel and Paul McCartney at a young age. Tamar started writing songs when she was 14, and she began playing the piano without formal training, and learning by simply picking up the instrument solely by ear.
Through a Youtube cover contest, she became known by Interscope Records, which signed her. Shortly afterwards New Day was released and it became her debut album’s first single. Sinner Or A Saint was a classic pop album of thought-provoking, hopeful, playful, and honest songs. It's a coming-of-age record that chronicles Tamar’s life, relationships, and her utter determination to create an album that is real and true to herself, both personally and artistically.
Her EP titled California was released in 2012. It was one of the first released from Universal’s Killer Tracks Artist Series, an innovative and non-traditional platform created to help artists reach new audiences and explore new revenue opportunities. Returning back to the studio, Tamar is wrapping up her follow-up 5 song EP with Killer Tracks, available in May 2015.
