"When I received a copy of Tanta T's "Waste Time," I immediately fell in love with her sultry, expressive voice," says Capsicum CEO and A&R Director Roger Meltzer, "I added it to the rotation on my radio show and got pull up (replay) requests every week. Shortly after that I got to see the music video she did for the song on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGbq-4MGh_M) and made up my mind I would reach out and 'friend' her on Facebook and invite her to join the roster of exciting new artists releasing new singles on our label. Listening to the lyrics about her unfaithful man while watching her in the video, I quickly decided a mad man dis -- a foo fool."
A Florida transplant to L.A., Tanta T has been making a name for herself in the music industry as a singer-musician-songwriter for several years. Growing up performing on stages and playing piano, her main musical influences have been reggae, rhythm & blues, and light rock. She has adapted a style of writing songs that tell a story, expresses human emotion, or explain a difficult situation.
As an adult, Tanta T has been the opening act for many popular reggae artists including Buju Banton, Collie Buddz, Etana, and Everton Blender. She released her first album titled “JAmerican” in 2012 which, to this day, still receives praise worldwide. Her dancehall single “Baddest” received The Akademia Music Award for Best Pop / Reggae Song of the year in 2016.
Her music, videos, and blogs can be found on her official website TheOfficialTantaT.com or by a simple internet search of her name “Tanta T.”
