I Wanna Thank You
Tarra Scotton and Strong Tower
Lyrically drawn from the Bible and targeted at youth that are lost and
searching, "I Wanna Thank You" is a moving experience.
Although classified as a Gospel group, TS&ST is heavily retro-jazzy and
R & B. Lead vocalist Tarra Scotton has a powerful voice that will amaze
you. When you mix her R&B sounding vocals with the harmonies of back up
vocalists Darla Logan, Caryn Ross, and Tanesha Smith every song is pleasing.
Back this up with the superior musicianship of Eric Greene Jr on drums,
bassist Norwood Long, Keyboarding duo Reggie Rice and Irvin Washington
and you have a sure thing. "Mission Not Impossible" is an instrumental
track that showcases their talents. It's important to note that at the
time of this recording all of the members of TS & ST were 18 years old
or younger, other than Tarra and Darla. Backup vocalist Tanesha (daughter
of Tarra) was the youngest member at age twelve.
Producer Mark Hafer joins the band on the title track on lead guitar.
Hafer adds a "Joe Satriani" like guitar lead that really picks the track
Most of the lyrics on "I Wanna Thank You" were written together by Eric
Greene Sr and Eric Jr. The message of the lyrics is clear and mainly taken
from scripture. As is the case with "Time Is Winding Down", which takes
the message of Revelations and puts it to song.
