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.
Though having traveled a great deal throughout her life and retaining several different influences, Tanta T remains true to herself as an artist and carries a style that is reflecting of her own complex persona. In her songwriting, Tanta incorporates knowledge and self experience to create a message that is as real as it gets. With ultimate goals of becoming a successful contributor in music and a positive energy in the world, Tanta offers a word of advise to all those who are following a dream:
“Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do with your own life. You won't get anywhere listening to people who have never been where you're trying to go."
