This creative escapade is the result of a partnership between Baxter and Andre Scheepers. Scheepers, a gifted pianist and songwriter who has worked with the likes of Merchandise and Black Rabbit, collaborated with Baxter over a period of almost a year to create Colour of Me. This talented duo put together the demos which would later form the album, working in Baxter’s dining room and other unconventional spaces.
Tasha is one of South Africa’s most forward-thinking dance, trip-hop and drum ‘n bass innovators. Over the past few years, she has developed a reputation as a multi-talented artist who has lent her songwriting and vocal skills to many high-profile projects, albums and songs.
Her most notable vocal contribution was on Roger Goode’s 2002 international dance hit, In The Beginning. Tasha also provided vocals and songwriting to four other tracks off Goode’s album and this relationship continues to this day.
Tune into almost any pop radio station and you won’t have to wait long before hearing Fade To Black. The voice sounds familiar but you can’t quite place it. Meet Tasha Baxter, the woman behind the song and, in our opinion, soon to be an international superstar – thanks to her recently launched debut album, The Colour Of Me
She has made a substantial impact on the Cape Town and Johannesburg music scenes, working with the likes of drum ‘n bass producers Counterstrike, various house producers, and featuring on Soulsista’s album. Her raft of corporate work (composing tracks for commercials and more) is equally impressive and she has performed alongside some of the biggest names in the DJ world.
She was also the resident drum ‘n bass DJ at Trailer Park in Melville for years and her continuing passion for being behind the decks will see her play in the Dutch city of Utrecht in early October
However, our best kept musical secret isn’t a secret anymore as her debut album, The Colour Of Me, is now on the shelves. The album is the result of a partnership between Tasha, gifted pianist and songwriter Andre Scheepers, and NOISIA, a Dutch production team which was recently commissioned to remix Robbie Williams’ King Of The Bongo.
February saw Tasha launch The Colour of Me to radio and, to date, two singles have been released: Who’s Sorry Now, which did exceptionally well, and Fade To Black, with its catchy melody and clever lyrics that are pushing the song further up the charts every week. The Colour of Me was also released through all of EMI’s European offices in April.
