Taj believes this could well be his most outstanding album to date. Pause captures the reality of the time with deep rooted poetic and emotional lyrics. His mind worked overtime, synthesizing a new reality, imposed by a humanitarian crisis. The music industry suffered as the pandemic spread everywhere.
 
Many of the album tracks on “Pause” include a stark assessment of political greed. The song Crisis” is the first single and video released in July 2021. It awakens our consciousness to the haunting sound of a siren. A siren is a sign of crisis.
 
“Memoir” ensures truth will reveal itself and all that was hidden to cover a crime. “Bang Bang”, “March of the Silent”, “Sister Mary” and “Rainstorm” are songs of emotion. They speak to the power of the people.
 
The album Pause represents a highly executed work of art with instrumentation. Taj’s commanding voice, with his back up singers and chanting guest create a quality sound.
Taj has a long history of giving back to community. He does it through the lyrical potency of his music. He also works to foster support to children in the Caribbean.
 
His non-profit, They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO), spearheads humanitarian projects. After school sports programs, diabetes awareness, are some of his projects. The non-profit also brings attention to domestic violence awareness.
 
Taj worked with the Rotary Club during the 2021 St. Lucia election season. They helped to deliver 10,000 pounds of food to social service organizations on the island to feed the hungry.
 
Taj Weekes is an artist who walks the walk and talks the talk. He teaches his own children the joy of giving, something he learned from his own mother.
