After the release of the first single "For Real" earlier this year, Brooklyn based hip-hop duo Tanya Morgan are readying their third LP, Rubber Souls, produced by New York producer 6th Sense (B.o.B., Outasight, Talib Kweli, Mickey Factz, Homeboy Sandman, The Lonely Island, etc.). To be released on September 24th on ImprintOne80. Rubber Souls is a fuller, more robust sound than group's previous two discs, reflecting their decision to shake up the entire recording process for this project. Not only did they hand the production reins to an outsider for the first time, but they also added a stable of musicians with whom to collaborate. Moreover, Donwill and Von Pea recorded each song on the album together (as opposed to individually as they have in the past).

"This album shows us stepping out of our comfort zone to great results," explains Von Pea. "It brought out a new type of chemistry in our music." Instrumentally ambitious, Rubber Souls is about expansion. Challenging both artists and musicians, producer 6th Sense gives his interpretation of the Tanya Morgan sound - "The result in an album that will satisfy long time fans and shock non-believers," adds Donwill.

Today, Tanya Morgan are Donwill and Von Pea. Hailing from both Brooklyn and Cincinnati, the group--originally a trio--formed on the message boards of in 2003 when Donwill, Ilyas Nashid and Von Pea were all solo artists trading demos and beat tapes. The three MCs decided to collaborate for a one-off project and settled on the name Tanya Morgan - an inside joke to trick hip-hop crate-diggers and sample-searchers into thinking the record was an old-school soul singer. After their debut album, Moonlighting, was endorsed by the likes of ?uestlove in 2006 and was received enthusiastically by fans, Tanya Morgan decided to keep working together and keep the name. In the wake of _Moonlighting_’s critical success, the group released its follow-up, 2009’s Brooklynati which saw the group reach more fans and beguile more journalists as it was widely regarded as one of the year’s best hip hop releases.

Since Brooklynati, the group has reformed with Ilyas moving on to focus on his solo material and video production while Von Pea and Donwill continue to tour as Tanya Morgan, supporting the group’s classic material as well as the members’ first solo releases: Donwill’s Don Cusack In High Fidelity and Von Pea’s Pea’s Gotta Have It, both released in 2010.

Tanya Morgan has received acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Vibe, SPIN, XXL Magazine, XLR8R, Los Angeles Times, The Onion, NY Magazine and a bevy of other press outlets who have praised the group throughout the duration of their career.
