How it all began
Tasita has had music running through her veins from a very young age. Her unblemished voice has been turning heads since she performed for her church at just 8 years of age. Since then, this rising star has blossomed into a mesmerizing singer/songwriter whose astonishing talent has afforded her collaboration with some of the most well-known artists in the music industry to date such as Roy Ayers, Will Young, Madonna, Kyoto Jazz Massive and Reel People to name a few.
Tasita’s widely versatile voice along with her immensely talented songwriting capabilities have earned her well-deserved praise throughout USA, Europe and Asia, whilst making a strong connection to Japan from working with the well-known producer from Columbia Records Japan, Yukihiro Fukutomi, as well as Japanese superstar producer DJ Kawasaki. Tasita has also had great success in the House Music arena recording and touring with Superstar DJ’s Copyright and having hot songs released with UK Super House Music Label Defected and International label Purple Records.
Her rise has clearly been blessed with unparalleled achievement. Having her voice described as a “vocal power house” is the tip of the iceberg in regards to her growing success as an accomplished artist.
Tasita has toured and recorded with a myriad of bands and performers providing both lead and backing vocals. On Max Sedgleys album “Suddenly Everything “, she contributes her vocal talents to 9 of the well-received albums songs. Currently, she has been lending her robust lead vocal abilities to the groups Kyoto Jazz Massive and Sunlightsquare.
In early 2014 Tasita was finally able to achieve her lifelong dream of releasing music of her own. The Elements EP and Change My Heart single jetted to the Top 10 of the UK Underground Soul Chart at No. 4 and spent 4 weeks in the Top 20, along with remixes by Tasita’s long time collaborators such as Kyoto Jazz Massive, DJ Kawasaki, Distant People & Chops Man and Challi Murphy. The track ‘Too Bad” from the EP was hailed as “PENULTIMATE SONG OF THE SHOW” by DJ Brody Swain from BBC Introducing Coventry and Warwickshire. Music critics from various publications gave warranted praise to her work on social media sites and throughout the Internet. Bill Buckley of Soul, Jazz and Funk wrote:
“The beaty and impressive ‘Change My Heart’ single immediately won the affections of the modern soul community. The EP’s three other cuts – ‘Too Bad’, ‘Gonna Be Mine’ and ‘Can You Hear Me’ show that Tasita can do “sensitive” too… the haunting ‘Can You Hear Me’ is especially impressive.”
And upon playing ‘Change My Heart’ on Sound Fusion Radio, DJ Gloss tweeted:
“…It’s soulful, it’s a beautiful vocal – check it out!”
Now, Tasita is back in the studio again to bring us more of her beautifully unique soulful jazz and RnB genius. Look out for updates on her work as this star has only just begun to really shine.
