Tal & Acacia, currently signed to Sony BMG through publishing are looking to produce and master their new material! The “Black and White Album”  is a concept album that will be an exploration of fresh songs, sounds and new stylistic approach.

To see their extensive 13 year bio, please go to their official website at

www.talandacacia.com.

As you financially support Tal & Acacia, you are encouraging these musicians to create and share music that they seek to impact christian culture. As a CCM music review stated: ‘Their unique voices immediately set them apart from the majority of female duos.”

In November of 2008, they signed a contract with Provident group (a subsidiary of Sony Music.) .The CD recorded in 2009 and released in early 2010 featured three songs that were promoted on the radio, one song featured on the TV show “Private Practice,” one song used for a promo for Microsoft, and one song included in the movie and soundtrack with Justin Timberlake called “Friends with Benefits.”.

This 2010 “Debut” album was refreshing and upbeat. Their vocals were compared to Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crowe and Nora Jones.

In 2010, they wrote a song called “Hope Again” and this song was featured on the “Freedom” Album. It was a compilation of songs with other artists like: Third Day, Derek Webb and Jars of Clay. These artists united together to raise money to fight sex trafficking (see this Hope Again video and many others on utube by searching Tal and Acacia.)

Acacia and her new husband Andre Mayo were featured vocalists on a Jazz Christmas album this winter with David Ian, called “Christmas Time with You”. Check out their renditions of old favorites on Itunes or youtube.

Tal & Acacia have toured across the country as solo artists, but they have also accompanied Super Chik, Chris and Conrad, Sanctus Real, and other Christian Artists on their tours. They have shared worship and their songs at many churches, and festivals.

“When musicians try something new, sometimes they have to step out all alone.”

This is your chance to help great artists attain their dream.

The smallest gift is made large as many people unite together to help out!

Tal & Acacia have many songs to share and you can be part of the next chapter of their lives. If, on their first debut album they had six songs that caught the attention of radio, TV, movie and advertising producers, who knows what this next album may do?

Music is the way that Tal & Acacia continue to be a light in this world.

In the end, Tal & Acacia have a dream to share Jesus Christ in creative ways and they are able to weave their own testimonies with songs that wake up and inspire people to believe more.

They are available to visit your church and share, visit their website:

www.talandacacia.com for contact information and new demos.
Watch this site as new songs will be posted until this kickstart timer ends on July 17,2012.

Be a Part of The Making of Their Next Album!

Tal & Acacia are in the process of professionally recording a new album for you!

For quality mixing, mastering, etc.–your pledge will make these efforts reality and also bring sweet things to your email, mailbox, and earbuds. Let's go!


Here's the "Black & White" T-Shirt design and iPhone Case!
