there is so much to say about this album great ballads ,great midtempo tracks and acouple of uptempo tracks. outstanding tracks are so much love, love is..,tears fo joy, thank you father,romantically inspired, the whole abum is gem. This is a very difficult album on CD to find .very rare so if you see it dont hesitate to buy it. It is very soulful album from a massively underated singer (essential buying).
Renowned singer/songwriter Tashan has kindly contributed this great track to the Global Music Unites digital-only album, benefiting SOS Villages Zambia, Mission Direct and The Hunger Project.

Des textes sociaux souvent très durs et réalistes ou des ballades romantiques dans la pure tradition soul, c’est en gros le style Tashan mais avec toujours des rythmiques et des sonorités très hip-hop.

For Allowing Me To Keep Living and Chasing My Dream.....
Remastered with bonus remixes,,,,in my top 5 albums of all time Tashan's 'Chasin A Dream'. over 25 years since its original release and sounding better than ever. Will see me through the long winter commute ...
LA Jackson talks with TASHAN, the first R&B act signed to Def Jam/OBR. LA & TASHAN share a 25 year history because they were on Team Sony Music at the same time! TASHAN is also a featured artist in LA Jackson's MUSICOLOGY book series.
LA Jackson Hall of Fame Show 17 Tashan 9-10-13
Tashan won a place in my heart - and, presumably, yours - back in late 1986 with his debut Def Jam album, "Chasin' A Dream", and his subsequent albums "On The Horizon", "For The Sake Of Love" and "Life Goez On" did nothing but swell an already classy armoury of songs from this true gentleman of soul. Twenty-four years on Tashan has been working away on a number of albums that have been available to download and 2010 sees the amalgamation of some of these songs onto the new release, "All Or Nothin'" - a release that he should be justifiably proud. Tashan proves, like many others, that he doesn't need the stifled support of a major label to release quality music. This set contains more extensions from his mind and has set them in a more urban setting. Worry ye not though, as this is NOT some bragging pimply trousers down by your crotch sort of crass R'n'B effort. Tashan is class and that follows through on what he does here. The opening cut "Love Is Something" is urban yet agreeably soulful and who can argue when this brilliant vocalist is at the helm. Tashan has created a number of albums to suit various tastes and for me I am comfortable with this. He can, unlike many others, carry it off. I truly love the different and interesting "In My Life" which is a real must-listen-to track; one that gets into your head and under your skin. The simple, yet intricate melody is so so what we have come to expect from this great man. I feel the same way about "I Just Wanna" - a laid back, summery vibe. What's missing for me are some Jerry Hey styled horns. Man, would that be an added bonus on this. The wah-wah guitar flavoured jam "Right Now" is strong and reminds me of a mid '90s jam a la H-Town or someone of that genre. "Lost In Love" with it's freaky synths a la Phyllis Hyman's "It's All About Me" and the hand-clap Hip Hop beat is neatly matched with Tashan's eminently soulful vocal approach. In a younger artist's hands this would well be a disaster...Tashan is a hands-down winner here. Excellent. OK, it isn't of the calibre of his 1993 album "For The Sake Of Love", but this is another extension of the man - and a welcome addition as far as I am concerned. You can download this album direct from the Man himself on http://www.Tashan7.com. I am so pleased to welcome back this true statesman of modern soul...Mr. Tashan.

Chasin' a Dream Reissue March 2013
Liner notes by Alex Henderson March 2013
What an awesome album; this is a coming of age album for me. When I was younger I loved tracks such as "Chasing a Dream", "Read My Mind" etc but listening to the album some 25+ years later the stand out tune is"Got the right attitude - a duet with the legendary Alyson Williams, fresh from her High Fashion group days. Then there is "So much in love", "I don't ever" and "Love is....". Wow! My wife heard this album for the first time and she could not believe how lovely Tashan's voice is, how tight the production is and more importantly,how this album fell through the cracks commercially. This is a beautifully crafted (very underrated) album. If you are a fan of true soul singers buy, buy, buy!
New Tashan — Chasin' A Dream (with bonus tracks) ... CD Add to Watch List Add to Watch List Def Jam/FTG, 1986. New Copy .... A Def Jam classic from Tashan – and a record that really helped bridge the gap between male soul and hip hop in the 80s! The style's still as warm and soulful as most of Tashan's contemporaries, but the record definitely shows a bit of street soul in the rhythms too – often just a bit gentle, but prefacing the changes that would come more strongly in the next decade – an aspect that really made this one stand out from the rest! Tashan's vocals are in a classic romantic mode, but often set to beats that provide a nice contrast and a good sort of punch – a definite Def Jam mode that's famously heard on the title track. Titles include "Ooh We Baby", "So Much In Love", "I Don't Ever", "Love Is", "Read My Mind", "If Words Can Express", "Chasin A Dream", and "Strung Out On You". CD features bonus tracks – "Read My Mind (long version rmx)", "Read My Mind (short version rmx)", "Chasin A Dream (special mix)", and "Chasin A Dream (single)".

Tashan in Da House! Tuesday, 15 December 2009 22:01 New Soul Chronicle from our good friend, legendary soul singer Tashan, sharing his morning reflections with us and shows his gratitude to life and music. Stay tuned for a brand new interview with him coming up at the beginning of January. But for now, let's start with his soul chronicle. Welcome back to the spotlight T7! -Souly.
- Life Goez On... Don’t move until you see it. Wait till the moment is just right then go for it. Don’t write until you feel it. You wanna give all that you’ve got right there on the spot. Music is the expression of the human spirit at its best. In this lifetime I seek to give all of what I have been blessed to have. I realize that this is a gift that was given and meant to be shared. I remember singing at the age of 7 in front of the Gospel Chorus of the Beulah Baptist Church from Poughkeepsie NY at the Red Hill Baptist Church in Whitakers North Carolina. My mother played the piano and her eyes told me to open my mouth and sing from my heart. I was at peace. I could hear myself and I could feel my soul glowing inside. Eighteen years later I was still singing from my heart and my finest moment then was a song I wrote called “Thank Your Father”. Right now I reflect on the words of that song and realize that this is who I am. Recognizing where all my blessings come from. I am thankful. Thankful for all the many experiences music and singing has given me. Thankful for all the people I’ve met and who have enjoyed my songs over the years. Thankful for this lil light of mine…..I’m gonna let it shine. Thankful for the dream that I live and continue to chase everyday.Thank you to everyone who has ever enjoyed one of my songs.To someone who has just found out about me as an artist I invite you also to check out my website Tashan7.com. Since Life Goez On my first independent release on Power Kingdom Music I got a lot of work done and recorded a few new albums. Everything past and present is now in one place. Soul Chronicles……Taking it deeper. Thank You Father-Father Thank You. Wake up early start your day..Handle your business in each and every way. Put in work get a lil something to eat …Grab some sleep and start all over again- What a Life. Peace, Tashan7 (Extensions of My Mind Volume XV Tuesday December 15, 2009 9:34am)
All Or Nothin' is certainly apt as the title of one of three simultaneous new releases from the contemporary Soul and R&B artist Tashan. Recorded over the last twelve months and beyond the set covers three new albums all with a distinct flavour and style Tashan himself describes the albums as the following All Or Nothin': Catering strictly to the Ladies and most definitely the lovers, these sexy slow songs sing about love, passion and desire. Girl Be Quiet: Delivers hot summer beats for bouncing in the club or jamming to the radio. This juicy collection of Hip Hop Soul Dance music will surely taste good to your ears. Pourin Like Rain: Is Tashan's definitive work, designed to uplift and inspire the human spirit. This powerful set of songs will provoke your conscious mind and touch your soul. I've had advance previews of tracks from all three albums covering a massive 68 new songs and on the whole this is a massive return to form, stand out tracks from the three album collection include 'Your Love Gets Me High', 'Feel So Good', 'Love Is Something' and 'All Or Nothing'. All three albums are available direct from Tashan's own website located at www.tashan7.com but with over 68 tracks in the whole set I would reserve a weekend in your calendar to listen to them in full.

Mr. Pearse Tashan, many thanks to you. I'm not very skilled with the sites. But I put your site in my e-mail and I confirmed.
I bought all your CDs, I have known you through a very beautiful and very positive review in a newspaper of Italian music. In this newspaper have written reviews in Your extraordinary musical performance at the Festival "Umbria Jazz" writing that you were and you are the true heir to Marvin Gaye. By listening to your CD, I confirm that You are the natural heir to Marvin Gaye (with a more powerful voice).
Ciao Tashan Pearse You are a N° 1. In addition to being a great singer and a great vocalist
Hello MySpace Peoples My name is Tashan. I'm from Poughkeepsie, NY(845) 12601. A little place by the Hudson River in Upstate NY. Thanks for coming by my artist page. I've been in the music business for a minute now and wanted to share some of my music since its meant to be enjoyed by everyone. I got my first break back in the early '80s when Jalil from the group Whodini asked me to come with them to London and write a song called "Yours for a Night" on their debut album. I was going back and forth on the Metro north meeting with Russell Simmons at 1133 Broadway(Back in the day on the train...goin down to the city ......lookin for fame)playin him demos I recorded with just me and a piano. The journey from that point on has been a "trip" The ups and downs, the chance to be heard on radio to be seen on tv, to travel the world, but most importantly an opportunity to do what I love the most and that is write, record and perform songs. Well from them Kurtis Blow put me on the first Fat Boys album (Can you feel it?) and Afrika Bambataa liked my track with Whodini and I toured with the Zulu Nation as a part of Shango. Finally got my own deal from Russell on Def Jam and recorded my first CD "Chasin a Dream". I made a video from this album that played on BET and heard my voice on the radio for the first time. Wow this dream is for real now. Traveled a lot in Europe on the "Soul Songs Tour" with Oran Juice Jones, Chuck Stanley, and Alyson Williams doing shows with just one band playin for all of us. Recorded my second album for Original Black Records (OBR) which was the label designed for us singers since Def Jam was the house of rap with my friends Chuck and LLCool J. That album was a collection of songs about the world and the black family. "Black man" and "Save the family" videos from that album played on BET too. I even got the chance to do and interview with Donnie Simpson on my birthday. My next album was "For the Sake of Love" that I recorded in London, England. It was a live album since I used musicians and the London Symphony Orchestra... I released my fourth mixtape style album "Life goez On" on my own label PowerKingdom Music and Recordings The songs on my myspace player are mixes from Pkingdom's finest Dj's Respect to DjKurtKre-Z.DjBigChillT and 3rdFLoorEnt and DJBillSkillz of DITC.
