Tamika born and raised in Virgina (U.S.A.) in a creative and blessed environment by a single mother with her four siblings. She grew up with different music influences and was inspired by many different genres and artists from Soul and Gospel, HipHop to Rhythm & Blues and Reggae music. The latter one which she combines to make the unique sound that she has. After moving to Germany, she sang in a club for live music on the weekends until she could pursue another musical avenue.
She became a background singer for the Reggae artist Gentleman in 2002. Tamika toured and gained lots of experience performing in front of thousands of people. She regularly performed her solo songs during the set. A lot of her song ideas were manifested while on the road. Songs like "Rainy Days", "Sunshine" and "Good Days" emerged. Tamika became a popular singer, and worked with a lot different artists. Between 2004 and 2008 her voice was a part of different music projects like the "Tough Enough" Album which was produced by The Far East Band. She also became a member of "Sisters", who in 2008, released an album which is called "Gender Riots" Echo Beach / Indigo. Together with Mamadee, Tamika released the EP "Good Days" in 2008 as a digital release with Soundquake and as a physical release with Pow Pow Productions. Today Tamika is on tour with her solo project and Gentleman & The Evolution Band worldwide.
She has gathered different inspirations that lead to her debut album 'PIECE OF MIND' which will be released in March 2012. In a fast spinning computerized world, it is a musical oasis of tranquility. To reach the source you have to swim against the stream. ‘PIECE OF MIND’ is very uplifting and positive but with a sense of reality. An honest lyrical message combined with handmade modern roots music, beautiful melodies and alot of love to the detail. Produced by Firehouse, PowPow, Tune In Crew, Oneness, Bazzazian, ALTAFAAN, Kevin McCoy, BigFinga, Born Free, and Thorsten Haas. It is a timeless, refreshing masterpiece of music.www.facebook.com/tamika.music
