ENTIRELY TALIA, aka Talia Cooper, is a singer/songwriter who has performed all over the San Francisco Bay Area. She first wowed us with her amazing song, Pacifist Fascist some years back and we fell in love with her every single time she came back to the show. When she is not playing music she is the Director of Jewish Youth for Community Action (www.jyca-justice.org) where she has the privilege of working with high school activists. In addition to her own music, Talia sings with the internationally renowned Jewish women’s acapella group Vocolot (www.vocolot.com).
