Bio

Born in Jackson Mississippi, Tomeka spent her younger years in Tuscaloosa Alabama until her father received orders to report to Fort Lewis Army Base in the Pacific Northwest. She recalls sitting with her grandfather and listening to the blues and playing the harmonica. While at home being around her Dad she listened as he played funk and soul in one room and developed a strong connection to her gospel roots by singing in the church choir. The love of music came natural for the whole family. After relocating to the Pacific Northwest she began to enter in local talent shows around the city and became classically trained. Her love for music took her to the national stage of the BET television show Teen Summit.

Within the next few years she was introduced to the pioneering Grammy Award winner Seattle Rapper Sir Mix A lot. The two became friends and Mix featured Tomeka on his recording and gave her a dose of touring. All the while, Tomeka and Mix were experimenting with her sound. Given that sheenjoyed soul as well as the alternative rock sound indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, they decided to combine the two and use live instruments to bring out even more emotion. The sound clicked with Tomeka and The Black Hood’s substantial subject matter.“I really hope that my songs will have people talking and making a change within themselves,” she says. “There is a song on this release that is relatable to someone”. “The album was very therapeutic for me and it does bring a lot of conversation to the table. I hope that’s what it does, that it goes further and makes actions happen.” Tomeka is currently back in studio working on her second LP
