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?
