The Singer / The Songwriter
"Life for me ain't been no crystal stair" With a cool demeanor and laid-back persona one would never know the hardships that have plagued young singer/songwriter Tarvoria Russ. "Life for me ain't been no crystal stair" should be the title of her next song, but this popular Langston Hughes line describes her life growing up. The oldest of seven kids growing up with a drug-addicted mother, Tarvoria insists, "My family wasn't the Cosby's". Her grandmother raised her and her youngest brother. Forced to learn adult lessons as a child without the aid of her mother "I didn't really have a childhood." With the ability to follow in the steps of many of her family members, Tarvoria fought against stereotype and found her passion early on in life. Though her family didn't believe in her love for music, she found solace in the Church and in school chorus. "Music was my outlet, my cry for help."
Having worked with such producers as Jim Jonsin (Produced for Trick Daddy, Pitbull, Pretty Ricky), Khao (Produced for TI), Drum Magorz (Produced for Trick Daddy, Trina) and having co-wrote the hook for "I Aint Tryin' To Hear It" by Slip N Slide Recording Artist Dirt Bag featuring Monica, South Florida R&B singer/song writer Tarvoria is well on her way to embark on a successful career in the entertainment business. A career made noticed by the organizers of The Gainesville Music Summit who awarded Tarvoria with the 2007 Female Artist of the Year Award. Currently, Tarvoria is prepping her debut album for a 2008 digital release. The response Tarvoria received from fans for the 2007 release of her "Nothing But The Truth" Mixtape inspired her to release an independent project. "Thanks to the digital world, my fans are worldwide and an independent digital release is the best scenario for me right now" Tarvoria explains. She continues "my loyal fans in Central and South Florida will have the option of purchasing my product online or through local retail outlets while my fans in Georgia and Texas can log online to get my music".
Tarvoria's first single from the untitled album "Juicy" is a sexy track DJs have dubbed the new "Ladies Anthem". Currently Tarvoria is in the studio putting the final touches on her debut album. In addition to being in the studio, Tarvoria is also scheduled for various performances in the southeast region as well as in New York and Los Angeles. Other singles released by the sultry R&B singer include the two step dance style single "Slide" and the Hip-Hop inspired single "Probation". The demand for Tarvoria's music have grown tremendously from the release of previous singles, her mixtape and most recently for various appearances on Mixtapes by prominent DJs such as Florida's Bigga Rankin, Houston's OG Ron C and a host of others. Through her online presence, fans are encourage to log on to Tarvoria.com to listen to music, view performances and learn more about this budding R&B star.
Music consumes every outlet of Tavoria's professional life and not just for the benefit of her own project but for others as well. Tarvoria was the producer of Central Florida's longest running artist showcase held monthly in Daytona Beach, FL.

Introducing her fans to other artists and creating outlets for other artist to introduce their music are some of the elements of what sets Tarvoria apart from other artists. Tarvoria is strong willed, creative, independent, humble and focused; all the elements to sustain the ups and downs of the "business" and secure her place amongst R&B greats.
