It was clear to both of them when they met on the television show "The Voice" that they fit well together. "Jay is a special person and a gifted DJ", says Tara McDonald. She immediately signed him to a contract with her publishing company "Give Me More Music". The exchange of ideas with Tara was important for Jay Style. "I trust her completely", he says.
Shape the Future of Audio - Honest collaborations are important to Tara McDonald
When Tara McDonald is working on a song, collaboration is more important to her than the music as such. She's the female vocalist on several current electro tracks and has worked in the studio together with David Guetta and Snoop Dogg. In her radio show "I Like This Beat" McDonald introduces the people behind the current electro-hymns - the DJs, of course, but she prefers featuring the singers, who often stand in the shadow of the biggest names.
Jay Style could become one of the next big names in the French DJ cosmos. He produces, plays in clubs and is currently under contract with Warner Music. He is a rising star who, like McDonald, moves fluidly between the stage, the studio and radio.
Her creed is team work defined by respect and openness. "You have to trust yourself and the other person", says McDonald. Early on, she worked together with Jay Style on their newest song snippets via Skype, developing new ideas from afar. "Every opinion was important and was heard", says McDonald.
