New Jersey-based Reggae singer-songwriter, King Tappa, began his music career as DJ where he was apart of the established Power Sound. At the time, his stage name was DJ Tappa where he had the opportunity to perform at many venues within the tri-state area and international locations such as St. Croix, Linstead, Jamaica, Bermuda, and Dominica. Inspired by international Reggae artists and bands such as Steel Pulse, Beres Hammond, Culture, Gregory Isaac, Capleton, and Morgan Heritage, he began singing and songwriting.
Going now by the name King Tappa, he released his debut album “When I Work” in 2007. The album garnered success in Dominica and Tappa was able to give an unforgettable performance back in his homeland performing with the likes of Tanya Stevens and Gyptian. His dedication and drive have proven itself over and over again, giving the upcoming talent opportunities to perform alongside artists like Da’Ville, Elephant Man, Buju Banton, Beenie Man, and hip hop artists Rick Ross and Fabolous.
Releasing his second album July 11th, 2019, “Feeling the Vibes”, this album comes over a decade after his first release. “Feeling The Vibes” showcases the artist's growth significantly over the years. Since 2007 Tappa has been performing both locally and internationally in places like Canada, the Caribbean, and Nairobi, Kenya, Africa, which by far is the highlight of his career.
