Best-selling vocalist influenced by her Oklahoma roots

Tabitha Fair is a successful Chickasaw pop, country and gospel singer who has been flexing her vocal chords since the tender age of 11. Growing up as the daughter of an Oklahoma preacher, she was heavily influenced by her gospel roots and by her parents’ ministering through music.

After making records with her family as a kid, she moved to Nashville at the age of 15 and soon signed with Skylight Records. Through producer Keith Thomas, she was able to record and tour with superstar Amy Grant and build up a positive reputation around town, leading her to work with other country greats like Wynonna Judd and Faith Hill. Continuing to explore her gospel roots and musical heritage, Tabitha co-founded the highest selling Contemporary Christian group of all time, Avalon.

Deciding to spend time honing her craft as a solo artist, Tabitha moved north to New York, where she soon got her hands wet in all aspects of the entertainment industry. Among other accomplishments, she has written and recorded with Carole King, has sung in concert duets with Sting and Travis Tritt, has had her work featured on numerous national commercials and is a regular background vocalist for The Roots on the Jimmy Fallon Show. She is currently working on a new album.
