Welcome to tarrabmusic.com. I am David Barrat - a non-performing songwriter - and I created the concept of Tarrab Music in order to promote my songs.
I have been writing songs since the late 1980s and have been recording them in local studios, with the help of professional arrangers and producers, and session singers and musicians, since the 1990s. I have primarily attempted to write for other artists and initially sent tapes round to publishers without any noticeable success. In 1997 I decided to release a song on my own record label, Blue Label, with the artist Jakk. The song was called "Love Me From Every Angle" and made it to the dizzy heights of number 44 in the Commercial Club Chart. A young artist called Michael Hinch also performed one of my songs "Perfect Pop Song" during his tours of 2008 and 2009 and a clip can be found online here (for some reason Michael never managed to work out how to sing the middle 8 section of the song). In 2009, I made available an album of my songs with Debbie Saloman, a session singer who sang on most of my songs with female vocals, called "Voyage of Discovery". The songs were played mainly on Jango Internet Radio but also on Last FM. A follow up album "Hooked On Love" was released in 2010. Also in 2010 I released "My House" by Debbie Saloman on the Tarrab Music label, with remixes by Soulshaker and Loverush UK/Kinky Roland, which again reached the lower reaches of the club charts. I enjoyed the fact that thousands of people were listening to my songs and clearly, from the responses, many people liked them. Some of my songs were also released under the artist name Radford Romaine. My philosophy is to write pop songs with catchy melodies which hopefully strike an emotional chord with the listener.
If anyone has any suggestions for the use of any of my songs please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
All of my songs have been arranged and produced by the musical genius who is Christian Fontana.
