After many years performing as the lead female vocalist for the brilliant 2 x Grammy Award winning band Arrested Development, acclaimed US songbird Tasha LaRae reveals her stunning debut solo album, Tasha. Showcasing her versatile talent, Tasha delivers 13 beautifully penned emotive gems that weave between the R&B and Soulful House spectrum, primed with heartfelt lyrics reflecting on love, loss and positive affirmations.
“This album is a well-rounded view inside my head. It represents how I see the world and communicates my passion for forward movement. I believe that we as humans are capable of accomplishing extraordinary things, but to do so requires us to leave our comfort zones and embrace the unknown. That last sentence is easier said than done, so I’m releasing this record to prove its possible.” – Tasha LaRae
The album features an array of collaborations with some of the hottest talent on the soulful scene, including DJ Spen, Jay Kutz, Rhemi, Spencer Morales (DJ Spen & John Morales), Master Mello, DJ Kemit, Sebb Junior, Soulfuledge, Jihad Muhammad, Beat Rivals, Earl Tutu & John Khan, Opolopo and Arrested Development band mate, Speech. Alongside 9 brand new exclusive songs, the album features popular singles Ready and Never Be Alone, along with 2 spine tingling cover versions – Angie Stone’s classic Wish I Didn’t Miss You and Teena Marie’s much loved soul jam, I Need Your Lovin.
“Life is a beautiful experience. It’s not always easy and things don’t always go our way, but no matter what happens, we have to keep going. I make music for people in motion.” – Tasha LaRae.
Tasha will be released on Traxsource and Spotify November 1st / Full release November 14th 2019 on Quantize Recordings.
