I love the textures: the grit.� “There’s no other sound that makes me feel as deeply,� Priya said.

Priya also has a contingency plan: Before she started pursuing music full time she worked in finance. However, while she acknowledged the challenges of being a full-time musician, she said her plan is to continue forging on as a singer. “I wake up all the time with a song in my head,� she said. “What am I going to do if I can’t write that and perform it?� N Info: Tara Priya and Jason Cirimele are scheduled to perform this Saturday, Dec. 4, at 8:30 p.m. at Red Rock Coffee at 201 Castro St. in Mountain View.
