Born in Atlanta and raised in East Point, singer, songwriter, engineer Tasha Catour is redefining the sound of her generation. The singer/songwriter was immediately embraced by the A1 Records/Epic artist for her ability to create a sound uniquely her own. She is signed as a writer to Future’s pub company and just released her debut single “Happy”.
The pivotal moment in Tasha’s career came in 2012 when she appeared on the track “Rider” from Future’s classic Astronaut Status mixtape. Tasha’s unique and melodic delivery assisted in making her an inescapable presence in every major facet of the hip-hop genre over the past two years. Her recordings have been credited in helping to rejuvenate the popularity of the mid-2000’s “girls singing on hooks” and made her a staple of urban music.
Tasha has a Grammy in the Best Gospel Album category to back it up, an honor she earned for her contributions to Christian rapper, Lecrae’s 2013 album, Gravity. She further solidified her place as a go-to singer/songwriter with a 2015 BET Award for Best Gospel Record for her work on Lecrae’s 2014 album, Anomaly. Her work on that album also earned her another Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance, with “All I Need Is You.”
Tasha’s musical influences, which include Babyface, Brandy, Esther Dean, The Dream and Future, among others, reflect her creative versatility.
Since 2013, she’s written and appeared on several songs with Future, including “4 My People,” “Good Look” and “Thug Song.” She’s also written for singer, Tinashe, on her 2014 song, “How Many Times” featuring Future. Her well deserved but dizzying ascent to fame is a modern benchmark of success for any young aspiring artist blessed with an uncommon degree of passion.
