Tara Cynara Newley (born 12 October 1963) is an English singer.

Newley was born in New York City. She is the daughter of actress Joan Collins and actor/composer/singer Anthony Newley, and sister to Sacha Newley. She studied at Boston University School of Fine Arts and graduated in 1987. She returned to London when her parents' seven-year marriage ended in 1970 and her mother married the head of Apple Records, Ron Kass. That marriage produced a half-sister, Katie.

Newley was a television presenter in the early 1990s and, with a recording titled "Breathing Is E-Zee", made #72 on the UK Singles chart in 1991.[1] She was engaged in the mid-1990s to John Bramwell, lead singer of I Am Kloot, whom she met when they were both presenting a show on Granada TV called "Fresh". She was married to the French composer Michael Adam with whom she had a daughter, Miel Celeste, born in 1998.[2] The couple are now divorced. She later had a son she named Weston.

Newley appears in a role based on herself but named Thumbelina in the 1969 movie written and directed by her father, Can Hieronymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?.[3]

In 2006 she moved to England and now lives in Somerset, just outside Weston-Super-Mare. [4]

In 2009 Newley began appearing on Sky 1's talk show Angela and Friends.

She is currently[when?] writing an online column called Sex In The Country which talks about relationships and the issues with dating in the country.[4][5]
