Chicago based Rock ‘n Roll band TAFOYA announce their debut EP Freedom (out June 17th) and share their second single off the project “Long Time Ago”, out May 20th. Already a big name in Chicago and having performed all over the midwest, the EP marks the group’s first official release since forming in 2021. “Long Time Ago”, a song that Mike Tafoya calls a sort of “autobiography”, starts off with a “snake-charmer” intro that quickly unfolds into the sort of vivacious and driving classic rock sound that Mike Tafoya has been delivering for decades. From the intelligently crafted guitar melodies and chord progressions to the deep and illustrative lyrics, TAFOYA are serving a powerful message behind a rich wall of Rock ‘n Roll sound.
TAFOYA is the explosive new power trio fronted by legendary Chicago guitarist Mike Tafoya (formerly of TheBoyzz, TheB’zz, Raw Dogs, Tafoya’s Lost Boyzz). Considered one of the Midwest’s most accomplished musicians, guitarists, songwriters, and performers with a previous deal with Epic Records, Mike is back with two new bandmates in the mix – Craig Cederholm (Percussion-Vox) and Leslidiana F. Biocic (Bass-Vox), to form TAFOYA. The product of this epic collaboration is a combustible Rock ‘n’ Roll experience that will have you dancing and singing throughout every song.
