The release of my debut album Rough&Fancy Vol. 1

Hello everyone. I'm TaQuita Thorns a singer from Detroit MI and I love music. I have been singing all of my life. I began writing at 5 years old and haven’t stopped since. I have dreamed for years about releasing a collection of original music for all to hear and enjoy. That day has finally come.

The title of my debut album is "Rough&Fancy," which was a nickname given to me by my middle school principal. More than just a nickname reflecting my sense of fashion and personality, “Rough&Fancy” describes my experience growing up in the slums of Detroit. I always loved to dress up and perform for family and friends. It made me feel fancy and lifted my spirits no matter how rough my struggles or surroundings were. “Rough&Fancy” is the music of my soul.

I am grateful to the many people that helped make this collection possible.

To my forefathers and foremothers, I thank you for your courage, love and inspiration.

To my wonderful husband, thank you for supporting my dreams and spirit. I love you infinitely ^.

To my son Corey, you are smart, strong, loving and beautiful. I love watching you grow up. I am so happy and proud to be your mother.

To the wonderful producers and musicians who worked on this album, thank you for sharing your pearls of wisdom, talent and passion for music with me. This album reflects your high level of professionalism and musicianship. I appreciate your contributions.

To my fans, you keep me strong. I am honored to share this collection of songs with you. I thank you graciously for your continued support and kindness. I will be coming to a stage near you. Come out and celebrate with me live! Until then, be true to yourself and Follow The Love.
