Tasha

tasha This week, Jim and Greg talk with Chicago singer, songwriter and guitarist Tasha. She was one of Greg's buried treasures after seeing her dazzle onstage at South By Southwest earlier this year. She released an EP in 2016 and her debut album, Alone At Last, came out last year. As a poet and activist, Tasha's music is a blend of soft sounds and tough truths embedded in the lyrics. Some of the themes she explores are as heavy as racial and gender inequality and as restorative as self care and rest. They talk with her about the latest album, her activism and what she does for self care.
