Tafari (pronounced Ta-far-eye) Anthony is a Toronto based artist whose music blends R&B, pop, and soul. He is a creator who embodies the spirit of the modern musician. Not just a musician, but a creator. Known for his sleek vocal tones, sultry melodies and music which oozes with personality, Tafari leaves listeners in awe – somewhat apt considering his name means “He who inspires awe”. After taking a break from music in 2018, Tafari returned early 2020 with the release of his pop anthems, “Centerfold” & “Live in a Dream.” Now he unveils the emotional “No Good". The impassioned song narrates how some relationships are just no good for us, yet we somehow still end up pursuing them to the bitter end. Tafari confides, “It takes a lot of self-reflection to see these patterns in ourselves & even more so to get out of them once we realize. If 'Centerfold' was the ultimate fuck you to an ex, 'No Good’ is the clarity that you played just as much of a part in the downfall.” Tafari has seen success with his music garnering acclaim from the likes of PAPER Magazine, Gay Times & MTV to name a few. He has been nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award and receives regular airplay on CBC Radio, with one of his singles being named one of CBC's Most Influential Songs of 2016. The singer has also performed alongside Shangela (RuPaul's Drag Race) and has performed at Toronto’s Dundas Square and Massey Hall. "No Good" is off of the upcoming EP The Way You See Me, due later this year.
