talker is the grunge-pop project of Los Angeles-based Celeste Tauchar. After cutting her teeth playing in the band FRENSHIP, which saw her perform at venues and festivals like Red Rocks, The El Rey Theatre, and Lollapalooza, talker released a series of singles in 2018, ultimately leading to her debut EP “Horror Films”, released in February 2019. Her music has received attention from such notable outlets as Alternative Press, Grimy Goods, We Found New Music, and more. Her first single “Collateral Damage” reached #5 on the Hype Machine popular charts, and her single “Intimidated” was featured on Spotifyʼs “Pulp” playlist. Deeply rooted in the Los Angeles indie scene, talker has headlined the Hi Hat and Madame Siam, co-headlined the Moroccan Lounge, and has performed at countless other notable venues including the Hotel Café and the Roxy. She has also toured and opened for indie artist Yoke Lore, and has opened for Hannah Wicklund & The Steppinʼ Stones and Low Hum. Constantly creating with no plans to slow down, talker signed to Common Ground Collective in 2019 and will be releasing her next single “Keep Me Safe” in the fall.
