ARMTV revealed the name of another singer who will join the Armenian supergroup Genalogy. And it’s Tamar Kaprelian.
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.
Through a story of inspiring discovery, Tamar Kaprelian competed in an online contest run by the band, One Republic, in March, 2008. Through YouTube, the contest aimed to choose the best cover of the band’s hit song “Apologize.” As a reward, Ryan Tedder brought Tamar to the attention of Interscope Records, which signed her shortly afterward. Wax Ltd produced her song “New Day,” and it went on to become her debut album’s first single. “New Day” was featured in various television programming, including the fifth season finale of the hit MTV series “The Hills” and the promo for ABC Family’s “Huge.” Tamar Kaprelian released her first studio album, “Sinner or a Saint,” on Interscope Records in August, 2010. It represents 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.
