1. Tell me a little bit about yourself how did you get your stage name, where are you from, where do you reside etc?
I’m what you call an overall entertainer. I rap, sing, dance, write, do radio, comedy, fashion & more. My stage name T-Quest randomly came out of nowhere years ago. I couldn’t understand why it popped in my head but I told myself this is my new nickname. Over the years I found the meaning of it which is Tara’s Journey. I am originally from Connecticut but now reside in South Carolina.
2. Why did you decide to become a DJ/ Artist/ Entertainer?
I grew up a quiet child but always gravitated to music. Music became my outlet and how I expressed myself to people. I started as a singer, dancer, then rapper and radio personality as well as event host came along years later.
3. Who and/or what motivates you?
My future self & my family especially my niece as well as my nephews motivate me because I do this for us. Its my passion, it makes them happy & I always wanted to set my family up financially.
My fans motivate me too because so many lives are touched by my artistry. They feed off my positive energy, my happiness and my words help them get through their everyday lives.
4. What would you say is your biggest accomplishment to date?
Having music available for purchase officially is the biggest accomplishment to me because I am not a music artist without music for the people to buy, hear & enjoy. It feels good to know people can purchase my music on Itunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc
5. What projects currently working on?
Right now I am in the process of recording my Love Album. I am excited to work with producers such as Redwing Wizz (The Solution), Cell Beatz Productions, Beats by Ced, FDX & C. Woods on this project. I am also finishing up my first relationship book called Situationships. Both to be released this year.
6. What changes would you like to see in the music/entertainment industry?
I would love to see more female hip hop artists in the game go mainstream. I would love for a lot of us to rock out together, make money and to not always be compared like it has to be a competition. We all can win together just like the guys and females in every other genre.
7. What makes you different from other artist?
I make music in many genres so I always have songs many can enjoy. I’m a hip hip artist who doesn’t use profanity, my music is forever clean. I’m diverse & relatable. They never know what I’m going to bring to the mic when performing but they know for sure that they’re going to love it.
8. What crews, company’s are you apart of why did you join the Fleet Djs?
I’m apart of a team call The PHAT Katz which is Professional Humble And Talented Katz (Ladies) The talents between the 4 of us is endless. I’m also apart of Jus Move Studios. Jus is my Choreographer, voice coach, piano teacher & more. I joined Fleet Djs because I respect the work they do & love the bond they have with one another. Also as a music artist, I’m nothing without the Djs. They have to play my music! LOL. I feel like I gained a new family once I joined Fleet.
9. What other skills/talent do you have?
I’m a music artist but I am a fashion designer as well. I have a clothing line #TheGLMCollection
