Talker is the grunge-pop project of Los Angeles-based Celeste Tauchar. The name is a nod to her last name, notorious in her family for being misspelled and mispronounced. Starting out touring and playing for other bands including electro-pop group FRENSHIP, Tauchar quickly gained extensive performance experience at venues and festivals like Red Rocks, The Bowery Ballroom (NYC), The El Rey Theatre (LA), Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands.
After years of writing and developing on an artistic & personal level, Tauchar began independently releasing music under the name “talker”, which received attention from such notable outlets as Alternative Press, Grimy Goods, We Found New Music, Buzzbands LA, and more. Her first single “Collateral Damage” reached #5 on the Hype Machine popular charts, and her single “Intimidated” was featured on Spotify’s “Pulp” playlist.

These early releases resulted in talker’s debut EP “Horror Films”, which featured collaborations with April Bender and Dan Sadin, production from Sadin and Phil Simmonds,Deeply rooted in the Los Angeles indie scene, talker has headlined the Hi Hat, Madame Siam, & Moroccan Lounge, and has performed at countless other notable venues including the Hotel Café and the Roxy. In January 2020, she embarked on her first tour up the West Coast.


Spellbinding as its suspense makes sparks fly, “Personal Space” is a drama tautly-told and the grandly-imagined brand-new single from L.A.’s Celeste Tauchar, a.k.a. talker. The track concludes her recently-released, six-song Wax EP.

Grunge-pop siren Celeste Tauchar, aka Talker, started 2019 by releasing her very good “Horror Films” EP and finished it with the even-better single “Learning the Feeling.” 

If you don’t know yet, Talker chances are she knows you – or at least she knows how you think. Through her growing catalog of work, LA’s Celeste Tauchar has amassed a thorough exploration of the internal struggles that plague us. From grappling with our perceived inability to break unhealthy cycles (“Changes”), to feeling adrift and abandoned when a loved one moves on to greener pastures (“Keep Me Safe”), and knowing that sometimes the best way to do right by someone is a path wrought with pain (“Passive”), she taps into a wellspring of candor and confessionalism unmatched in the burgeoning rock scene of 2020.

Here’s the second EP ,so expect the singer-songwriter to uncork more emotions with her characteristic grit and grace. The Rising alt-rock star talker continues to roll out her forthcoming EP ‘Wax’ with her deepest cut yet. “Suck Up” is an anxiety-driven search for one’s sense of self with no easy answers. But its furious intensity dispels the malaise one headbanging chorus after another.

Continuing her ethos of pulling no punches, she returns with her third cut off her upcoming EP “Wax” (due March 6th). After the emotional catharsis of “Learning the Feeling,” “Suck Up” excavates perhaps her most fretful subject matter to date. Blistering guitars propel an internal monologue on a desperate search for one’s identity. Who am I? she asks. And am I ever good enough to be accepted?

Before we end out the year, please make sure you get acquainted with Los Angeles-indie artist, Celeste Tauchar who goes by talker. She has just released a super grungy song titled “Learning the Feeling.” The song is slow in pace with electronic sounding drums and dark sounding guitar riffs. The vocal tone is standout and melodies seem to fit in with the likes of The Foo Fighters, Nirvana, and Eve Minor. The song is off of a 2-song release that also contains a track called “Keep Me Safe.” It’s a softer sounding pop song compared to “Learning The Feeling.” Both songs show off the singers immense vocal talent and range. We are very excited to hear what’s next from talker.

Celeste Tauchar aka talker is back with new music after her excellent EP “Horror Films,” released early this year. Her new single “Keep Me Safe” is soaked in strong conflicting emotions. “I just want you be happy,” she sings, but that selfless well-wishing doesn’t take her where she wants to be and you wonder how longs she can keep her cool.

Celeste explains: “Keep Me Safe” is the first piece of the next era of talker. Focused on the anxiety and impending worry we all feel when we’re about to go through a change or lose someone, the song came out of my own fear of the inevitable. I knew I was about to lose someone from my life and couldn’t focus on anything else, which also had a negative effect on the time we were spending together.
For the video, I wanted to create the visual manifestation of those emotions. However, there is redemption in owning up to your feelings, and throughout the course of the next few singles, the story
will continue as we see the result of trusting how you feel.

Dark, moody, intriguing and endearing, talker’s new EP, Horror Films, is captivating and sincerely relevant. Inspired by alternative rock, grunge music, and indie singer-songwriters, talker maintains a guitar-based sound while infusing organic resonances and bringing in modern production elements. Horror Films is talker’s diary, in which every single composition delves into her emotions. Horror Films is now available to stream and download on digital platforms worldwide.
