Fresh from the release last month of her hard-hitting, socially conscious “In A Di Jungle” single on the “RasVibe Records” label, Canadian recording Reggae artiste “Tasha T” prepares for a New York run in early May after the release of “Real Talk” her highly-anticipated album, currently in the final stages of production.

“I am reaching out to the youth of the world telling them to stay away from violence and crime,” she states. “You can look to a better future if you get a good education. To be successful in life; stay away from the gangster thing; it does not pay. It’s not worth it. Life has so much more to offer. Live up and love up. It will suit you better”.

Tasha T is no stranger when it comes to providing positive upliftment for young people. In 2012, she served as the musical ambassador for the Read Across Jamaica Foundation, an organization whose mission is to introduce creative and interactive methods of reading that encourage children to enjoy literature. During that period, she visited over 20 primary schools in Jamaica, participating in reading activities and providing words of encouragement.

In A Di Jungle was recorded at Grafton Studios and produced by the legendary Mikie Bennett, dubbed by music insiders as the “Quincy Jones of Reggae”. The song features exciting vocal arrangements and crisp vocal phrasings, a dominant characteristic of Bennett production style. The single is available on CD Baby and through digital retailers worldwide.

The “Real Talk” album is due to be released April 2013.
