Dedicated. Focused. Mature. Passionate. Those are words generally used to describe someone much older than 18. But that’s exactly how one would describe Tasji Bachman. Her close friends also describe her as energetic, creative, kind, and ambitious. Tasji, an 18 year old singer/songwriter from Stark County, Illinois, has had a dream of becoming a country music star for half her life.
Due to her Father’s career opportunities, she has lived in Joliet and Normal, Illinois prior to moving to Stark County. These varied, early life experiences from the Crossroads of America – including emergency lifesaving surgery at age 5, have positively influenced her culture and values. She is very appreciative and humbled by all of those who have blessed her with mentoring and continue to provide guidance and support to her in life and in her rising music career.
Tasji has spent the last eight years preparing herself for performing on the big stages. She has learned how to play the guitar, ukulele, and piano and hopes to soon add a fiddle to that ensemble of instruments. She has sung and played in venues and festivals across Illinois and in Nashville, Tennessee, sharing the stage/venue with artists such as Joe Nichols, Parmalee, Jon Pardi, Craig Campbell, Love and Theft, Josh Thompson, Clayton Anderson, Tyler Barham, Jake Maurer, JT Hodges, Drew Baldridge, and Easton Corbin. She recently finished recording and releasing her debut EP Album “Win Me Over” and another Single “Up” on Nashville’s famed Music Row. Tasji enjoys all genres of music, but country music is the one that speaks the most to her. Tasji’s love for country music is fueled by a vibrant spirit to sing from her heart about genuine life experiences, people, dreams, and adventures.
Music is a natural outlet for Tasji because her two passions are creating art and connecting with others. One of her favorite aspects of her budding music career is writing her own songs. With her lyrics and unique vocals, she longs to reach others on a deeper level. She doesn’t want people to just hear her music…she wants them to feel it on a raw, emotional level and be inspired.
When she’s not enjoying music, she keeps herself occupied with her other interests which include photography, long boarding, drawing, running, soccer, and cheerleading. Tasji plans to move to Nashville in the fall of 2016 to attend Belmont University, where she will continue to pursue her dream. Tasji’s ultimate attitude is one of confidence. She says, “With enough persistence, effort, and ambition, there’s nothing you can’t do. The only thing that can limit you is your lack of self-belief!”
