Promising new artist Tash Blake kicks off her music career with the debut single “Mannequin.” The up-and-coming talent leaves a strong impact on the listeners and instantly lures them in with her infectious aura and charisma.
Influenced by legendary performers like Madonna, Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga, Blake integrates her passion for dance and musical theater into her performances, delivering an utmost visual and sonic experience.
Tash reveals that “Mannequin” comes from “an incredibly real place. I had just ended a long term relationship of manipulation where I was never allowed to be my true self. This song sparks a new beginning in which I am finally free to say or do anything. I wanted to write something carefree and upbeat to dance to with my friends, but also empowering to give strength to those who find themselves in a situation similar to mine. In the past, I’ve tried to speak out but wasn’t heard, I tried to be my own person, but felt forced to be someone else.”
Blake not only shares her own experiences but also speaks from the “perspective of those who try to control and manipulate.” Tash hopes that when people hear the lyrics of “Mannequin,” “they gain the confidence to push back against people who try to manipulate and control them, as well as being able to let loose and have fun dancing around with their friends!”
