Born in New Jersey of Jamaican parents, Tanta was raised deeply rooted in Jamaican culture. She found the most influential part of her culture to be in the sweet reggae music that constantly flowed through her home as a result of her father's own passions as an avid collector and DJ of reggae music. Though schooled in reggae music, Tanta also quickly became a lover and accumulator of a wide variety of other genres including light rock, rhythm & blues, and oldies.
