Tanya StephensTanya Stephens (born Vivienne Stephenson on July 2, 1973) was one of the most promising female reggae artists to emerge in the late ’90s. Stephens caught her big break in 1996, when her ladies anthem, “Yuh Nuh Ready fi Dis Yet,” caused quite a stir (later spotlighted on the Reggae Gold 1997 compilation), as she soon after began working with such acclaimed producers as Barry O’Hare, Bobby “Digital” Dixon, Harvel “Gadaffi” Hart, and Dave and Tony Kelly. Future singles followed, including “Draw fi Mi Finger,” “Freaky Type,” and “Cry and Bawl,” as well as the full-length releases Too Hype in 1997 and Ruff Rider a year later (Stephens also contributed backing vocals on Garnett Silk’s 1998 release Journey). She then moved to Sweden and began recording a series of alternative rock tracks. Unhappy with her new direction, she returned to reggae in 2004 with Gangsta Blues and its big hit single “Boom Wuk.” The ambitious “Rebelution” appeared in 2006 with female empowerment as its focus.

Finally Tanya Stephens is set to release her latest album “Guilty” in Europe on her own label. The revered Jamaican singer-songwriter known for her smart thoughtful lyrics and soulful voice touches on a variety of topics on “Guilty” while effortlessly blending pop, soul, roots reggae and dancehall. She tackles relevant social issues like domestic violence on “Corners of My Mind” featuring Sanjay, spices up her relationship on the single “Pon Di Side,” celebrates human imperfections on “Broken People” and holds no regrets on “Unapologetic.” Her lyrics are relatable to all walks of life, giving “Guilty” worldwide appeal.
