Singer/Songwriter Tomeka Williams spent her younger years in Tuscaloosa Alabama until her father received orders to report to Fort Lewis Army Base in the Pacific Northwest. She recalls sitting with her grandfather and listening to the blues and playing the harmonica. While at home being around her Dad she listened as he playedfunk and soul in one room and developed a strong connection to her gospel roots by singing in the church choir . The love of music came natural for the whole family.

Within the next few years she was introduced to the pioneering Grammy Award winner Seattle Rapper Sir Mix A lot.  The two became friends and Mix featured Tomeka on his recording and gave her a dose of touring. Given that sheenjoyed soul as well as the alternative rock sound indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, they decided to combine the two and use live instruments to bring out even more emotion.
