Artist: Tal Bachman, Album: Tal Bachman, Song: She's So High

Tal Bachman is a singer songwriter from Vancouver, British Columbia.  He is the son of legendary musician, Randy Bachman (see blogs 11/13/10, 11/9/11).  Tal was signed to Columbia Records and released his self titled debut in 1999.  He co-produced the album with Bob Rock (see blogs 7/9/11, 12/15/11) and the lead single, She's So High, was a monster of a hit.  The song cracked the Top Ten in Canada and was a Top 20 single in the U.S..  The album itself sounds very British influenced and Tal garnered a lot of critical acclaim for this release internationally.  He toured as both a headlining act as well as in support of fellow Canadians, Bryan Adams and The Barenaked Ladies.  He was nominated for 4 Junos in 2000 and walked away a winner in 2 of the 4 categories.  Namely, Best New Solo Artist and Best Producer.  It would be another five years before his next full length effort.  He recently released a new single in 2011.  Aside from the obvious family musical influences, his debut wasn't his only foray into recording.  He was noted as a session musician in the liner notes of the first Copyright (aka Circle C) release (see blog 1/5/11) in 1991.  Beyond the world of music, he has spoken publicly about politics and religion on various television programs and for a brief period of his life, performed work as a missionary.  He has an interesting blog entitled, Tal Bachman In A World Gone Mad, that you can check out at  You can watch the video for his big hit, She's So High, on You Tube (  Coincidentally, Taylor Swift recently played a show in Vancouver and invited Tal on stage to join her in a cover of this song.  You can purchase the album on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
