With souled-out backbeats and smooth flows, Tara “T-Rhyme” Campbell’s music wouldn’t sound out of place on 1990s hip hop radio waves. For over a decade she’s been brandishing her skills with the mic and using the stage as a platform to empower young Indigenous women.
Using the spirit and sound of golden era hip hop, Tara shines a spotlight on her poetry and life experiences. Pride in her Cree/Dene background has served as inspiration for her rhymes and motivated her to become a recognizable force for women to relate to. Growing up in northern Saskatchewan she once felt isolated and far away from Canada’s burgeoning hip-hop scene. Today she’s at the forefront, carrying her First Nations identity into the recording studio and onto the stage.
T-Rhyme has an impressive list of memorable performances to date. She has been invited to share the stage with remarkable artists such as Salt-N-Pepa, A Tribe Called Red, Eekwol, Drezus, Factor Chandelier, Snak the Ripper and R.A. The Rugged Man to name a few. Most recently she travelled to Toronto to be apart of the Indigenous Art’s Festival which featured performances by Drezus, Plex and Supaman. With the experience, skills and confidence she has gained with each event, T-Rhyme plans to ignite a trail of future performances locally and abroad.
