My name is Tamik Gallishaw , better known as my stage name TaGee Fontaine. I’m currently
still a high school student (unfortunately) but at 17 you don’t have much say over that kind of
stuff. If I had to explain my sound in a few words I’d say Fresh , Trailblazing , and Relative in a
sense that people can make what they want of it. I don’t feel like you can’t box art or attempt to
explain it in a few words. If you were to look into the music on my iPhone the 5 artist you would
hear are Drake , Ariana Grande , Kendrick Lamar , A pop boy band that you probably wouldn’t
expect to see and The Seal Breakers. I have a love for all genres of music and embrace all
generations of music. If I could open for any artist on tour I would definitely open for Drake.
Mainly because of the diversity of his audience , I believe that id be able to gain a fan or too.
Plus I know he has ridiculous amounts of females in the crowd and TaGee love the ladies. When
I’m not writing , recording or perform I tend to creep and blow up celebrities news feeds on
Twitter ; it’s actually quite hilarious when you get blocked by your favorite artist… It makes you
feel noticed. Other than that I just like to do typical teenage things , I enjoy the opportunity to do
those things when I can. When creating music I draw inspiration from other artist. Whether it be
Shakespeare , my celebrity crushes ( plural) or a piece of visual art. The concept of our debut
album is life as we know it and anything I write will always be my perspective on life or I’ll
write for those who have no voice but I know that they’d appreciate the fact that someone
acknowledged their situation or story. My motto I live by is a quote by Martin Luther King
which states that “isn’t something in life you’d die for then life isn’t worth living”. I feel like with
music I’ve found a passion that id give my life to excel at , it gives my life purpose. 10 years
down the line I want to be RELEVANT . I want to be a voice for my generation and I can grow
as an artist and young man as my peers grow, that’s the best type of relationship to have as an
artist. Hopefully I can win my fair share of Grammy with my TSB family , I’ve always viewed
that as the “ultimate goal” for an artist . I just have to stay true to God and my art.
