::GET FAMILIAR:: TANGINA STONE
by Nakera Lee
While other musicians enter into the industry looking to recreate the wheel with imitated sounds and vocal abilities; Tangina Stone decided that her emergence into the industry would be strongly based on talent and breaking the mold, rather then being a carbon copy of what the industry has seen and heard countless times before.
The Brooklyn native, songwriter, and songstress allows her music to paint an image of pain and love through her legendarily soulful and bold R&B tone that resonates with various audiences since the introduce of her debut EP The Fall released in September. This EP featured 4 original tracks and 2 remixes. One of the original tracks from the EP The Fall is entitled "Suntan" and this particular track features a melodic acoustic feel that is filled with a smooth rhythmic sound.
Tangina spent a huge bulk of her career fostering relationships with local musicians and artists establishing a strong base of supporters and fans. One of Tangina’s means of staying connected to her fans was through her performance in the underground live music scene having played in arena’s such as SOBs, Silvana, and Rockwood Music Hall just to name a few.
According to Tangina Stone, “groove reigns supreme, and lyrical messages are meant to be thoughtful."
Many would refer to Tangina as a storyteller whose melodic voice creates an image that may not be seen through the naked eye. Tangina Stone has imbibed the soulful sounds of legendary greats before her such as Roberta Flack and Stevie Wonder, adding an unexplored twist that the industry has lacked for many years. It is through artists such as Tangina Stone that soulful music is able to live on.
