Welcome, I am Tawanna Shaunte, a singer/songwriter, musician, producer and pod-caster committed to inspiring audiences through unique musical experiences. Since I was a youngster, I have been intrigued by diverse people, conversations, and heartfelt music. I was born and raised in Mississippi, which I warmly refer to as the muddy magnolia state. Mississippi is known for being last in just about everything; on the other hand, it places its people in a unique position to understand what it means to struggle and eventually become triumphant.
My life experiences have made me a more creative, thoughtful, and a socially conscious artist committed to infusing inspiration, history, and culture in my music. Consequently, I have worked with some of the most incredible and brilliant artists in the world. I invite you to join me in being a Freedom Agent: an individual who is willing to break down barriers and be a catalyst for positive change. And together we can transform our world.
