Behind the artist alias, ‘Taralillah’, you will find Taralillah Jasmine Hjørdis Hessellund,
who, through her love of music and skilled production, has created a colorful universe.
Her project arose on the basis of her musical experiments since age 15, and an
inspiration from FKA Twigs, Chalie XCX, Lady Gaga and Grimes. Taralillah is pushing
the door to the music industry with a powerful spark and catchy songs.
Throughout her life, music has been at the forefront, and her musical journey
culminated in 2022 with her debut album. Hvor On her latest release, you experience a
refined and solid artist who knows what she wants with her music. Taralillah shows she
is ready to conquer the queer music scene.
The solo project ‘Taralillah’ is about challenging the stigma surrounding the creative
work of female musicians and producers. Her sound universe is based on a mixture of
the vulnerable and the violent, which is expressed in the sharp and well-produced
productions that exude genres such as Punk, Techno and Hyperpop.
Taralillah is powerful in her production, yet shows vulnerability and honesty in her
songs. Her rebelliousness is also expressed in her visual profile, which challenges both
the masculine and the feminine. She knows how to catch an audience on Instagram and
TikTok, and therefore has a strong SoMe profile. As part of the queer environment, it is
important for Taralillah to help createlid a diverse music scene via openness and
self-belief. She has therefore signed with the record company ‘Queer Music Agency’,
which helps to create the right conditions for the queer representation in Denmark. She
has talked about inclusion and acceptance of queer people on multiple occasions on
both television, interviews and radio stations.
Taralillah is therefore an artist with a bigger goal than just making ‘snappy’ music hits.
She wants to change the way we look at queer people and women beyond the music
industry. Taralillah’s songs lift you up and inspire you to be the true version of yourself.
Taralillah has played several concerts during the 2022, where she showed her utterly
irresistible energy on stage. She smashed the main stage on Pride Copenhagen with a
show of explosive power and confidence.
