Tasha announces new album All This and So Much More & shares new single/video ‘The Beginning’

Chicago-born artist Tasha announces All This and So Much More, her dazzling forthcoming album, due September 20 on Bayonet Records. If her 2021 release Tell Me What You Miss The Most was an introspective meditation on love with a few moments of glancing toward what’s next, All this and So Much More is Tasha turned outward, flourishing, telling us what it’s like to take life by the chin and look it in the eye. The announcement comes with a video for the album’s spirited lead single ‘The Beginning.’

“As one of the first songs I wrote for this album, ‘The Beginning’ feels like an introduction to the journey of self-discovery I found myself on throughout the year to come (and in turn, the songs that emerged),” Tasha explains. “While the song touches on uncertainty, sadness, and a desire for connection, the very first line – “This is not the end, it’s just the beginning” – encapsulates the sense of hope and possibility I continued to arrive at after it all. For me, there’s a lingering excitement at the end of Greg Uhlmann’s spinning guitar solo outro – it can be hard to see in the moment, but big endings are so often openings to adventures you haven’t even begun to imagine.”

All This and So Much More is an album crafted with a big, ambitious sound (in part, thanks to the production of Gregory Uhlmann)—cinematic droning, orchestral woodwinds, dazzling arrays of jangling guitar, all lining up to capture a sweeping moment in Tasha’s life. Written over the course of 2022 and 2023, right on the cusp of Tasha being cast in Illinoise, the Tony-winning Broadway musical which adapts Sufjan Steven’s Illinois for the stage, the songs on this album invoke friendship, heart ache, flirtation, doubt. Tasha brings us along on a journey of finding out that the person you wanted to be was inside of yourself, just waiting to bloom all along.

In All This and So Much More, Tasha asks us to consider abundance in its truest form. Our lives, a deluge of possible experience if only we will surrender to it, all the way from the citric ache of heartbreak to the chest bloom of new adventure.
