9 January 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Recording artist and composer Tasha Angela shares the single Undescribable Feeling today. Undescribable Feeling is Tasha Angela’s second record following Lost In Nostalgia released last fall. The confessional track offers a glimpse into Tasha Angela’s forthcoming debut EP, Hidden Gems, set for release on February 4th, 2020.
Listen to “Undescribable Feeling” here:
Released via Public Records/Universal Music Canada, Undescribable Feeling is a deeply personal song about depressive feelings and the weight of wading through them. Tasha Angela’s voice soars, adding air to the confessional record. Despite the difficulty of the song’s subject matter each verse unfolds as a catharsis resulting in a single that is both somber and uplifting. Undescribable Feeling was co-produced by Sam Willows, and co-produced and written by Tasha Angela.
Today, Tasha Angela also releases the accompanying music video for Undescribable Feeling.
Choreographed, performed and art directed by Toronto based actor and movement artist Virgilia Griffith.

In the words of Tasha Angela: “Undescribable Feeling is about pulling yourself out of a dark place. I came home after a bad day, sat at my piano and words began flowing out of me. I hope this song can help others who are feeling down in life the same way it helped me.”
Speaking on how the song inspired her movements Virgilia Griffith shares: “Self conflict, not feeling safe in your own body and the struggle to emerge from the void. It is the search for personal and emotional freedom.”
Not one to take a break, Tasha Angela has also secured a music residency at Toronto’s historic music venue Cameron House. Celebrating the launch of her debut EP Tasha Angela will be performing live on February 4th, 11th & 18th. Additional details to be announced at a later date.
ABOUT TASHA ANGELA
Toronto based recording artist, Tasha Angela, is a singer/songwriter/pianist/composer. Blessed with a gift for melody - Tasha’s writing has an innocence that belies a maturity beyond her years. Her passion for making music began at the early age of 11, performing at school recitals, writing poems and singing along to her favourite songs on her way to school. It was in these moments that Tasha Angela discovered her passion for singing and began to develop her sound. Drawing inspiration from Alicia Keys, India Arie, Will I Am and Lady Gaga she was drawn to R&B and soul because in her words: “that’s the way that it translates into with the words and melodies that I hear in my head.” Tasha Angela dedicates the majority of her time to developing and perfecting her song writing craft - she actively studies those who have come before her and is constantly refining her practice to determine what a great song is. Tasha treats her ability to create music as a form of healing, “I feel as though it’s the one thing that truly excites me when I wake up. When I hear a melody in my head and put the keys behind it and words to follow, it’s as if I can capture certain moments and make them last forever,” she tells us.
In early 2019, Tasha Angela connected with Toronto based music industry and community leader Gavin Sheppard at Jessie Reyez’ song writing camp. Taken by her sound and talent, Gavin introduced Tasha to Dan Kurtz (Dragonette & The New Deal) and his studio, The Asylum, in the spring of 2019. It was at The Asylum that Tasha finally found a collaborative musical home. It was also at The Asylum that Tasha began working and recording the majority of her "Hidden Gems EP" in earnest with producer/arranger Sam "Avenue" Willows (Carousel, Dragonette, Tokyo Police Club). This body of work also includes one single "Up To You" - which was produced by Juno Award winner, Rich Kidd at the Jessie Reyez writing camp. All the songs are mixed by Howie Beck (Feist, Dragonette, Charlotte Day Wilson). Tasha Angela is a Honey Jam 2017 alumni and has performed on a few other stages in Toronto including showcases with Talent Nation and with Second Nature Group. Confident, youthful and driven Tasha is a special and rare talent at the dawn of her creative journey with so much more to come.
