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. 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’.

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

International recording artist, Tasha LaRae is blazing her trail around the world with soulful house & R&B vocals that will keep you dancing and feeling optimistic about life. Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, relocating to Atlanta, Georgia gave Ms. LaRae the inspiration and opportunities needed to develop her unique sound. Diving into the Atlanta music scene as a background vocalist, session singer, and songwriter in the early 2000’s, Tasha supported artists such as Avery Sunshine, Anthony David and Tracy Hamlin. Then in 2007, her talents caught the attention of Speech from Arrested Development. By the following year, Ms. LaRae began traveling with the iconic hip-hop trailblazers as their new lead female vocalist and wrote and performed on several Arrested Development albums including ‘Strong’ 2009, ‘Standing At The Crossroads’ 2012, ‘Changing The Narrative’ 2016, ‘This Was Never Home’ 2016, and ‘Craft & Optics’ 2018. Recently, Arrested Development were awarded the 2019 Black Music Honors Hip Hop Icon Award for their contributions to music for the past 30 years, of which Ms. LaRae played a major role for the last decade. Tasha also continued to cultivate her songwriting skills by releasing several independent EP’s (The Tasha LaRae EP, 2010, Light EP, 2018). In 2016, she released her first house music single, ‘Find My Way’, on DJ Spen’s Quantize Recordings and it opened the door for a flood of smash singles on Traxsource including, ‘Never Be Alone’, ‘ Ready’ and two classic remakes, ‘Wish I Didn’t Miss You’ and ‘I Need Your Lovin’. As she continues to turn heads in the soulful fraternity, Tasha get’s set to release her first solo album, ’Tasha’, on Quantize this Autumn.

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
