Tafari Anthony – „To the End“

„To The End was created for anyone pushing to accomplish their dream while working through their own self-sabotage.
Over the course of my childhood and adolescence I realized I was gay. I felt pressured by my family and the industry to accept that I would have to become what was expected of a young black man. With the expectation of fitting into the status quo, I focused on a more urban R&B sound, where I began to find some local success. 

However, that success came at a price and I found out quickly that hiding my true self from those I loved was taking its toll on my personal life and inevitably my music. I found some relief when I started to meet writers and producers who didn’t feel the need to force me into one specific genre, but instead encouraged me to discover and explore many forms of musical expression. It was during this time I started to become more comfortable with myself musically, which ultimately lead to becoming more confident in my personal life.

I attribute my recent accomplishments to overcoming those expectations placed upon me by others and I’m grateful for those who helped support me to find the courage and confidence to live honestly with my convictions. „
