Tonya P, born Tonya Pringle is a Canadian born vocalist with a very unique sound that is fused with a bit of many genres. However once you hear her, Reggae and R&B are definitely the genres that seem to stand out the most in her music. Being the daughter of one of Jamaica's most prominent promoters/community activists, the late Clive Kubba Pringle (Bob Marley Birthday Bash MX3 Negril), this songstress was raised in the music industry among some of the best Reggae artists to ever grace the stage.

Tonya P has always had a hard driven passion for music. Growing up she was inspired by many different singers ranging from Bob Marley and Marcia Griffiths to Whitney Houston and Lauren Hill. Singing in high school music productions as well as local talent shows since the age of 14 proved to be just the beginning of her budding musical career.

Tonya's aspirations of becoming a music artist came to life the day she met a fellow Canadian based artist by the name of Shadrock. After hearing her sing at a nightclub he asked her to sing a collaboration with him for his upcoming album. The song was titled "What's Your Name?". It was the confidence gained from that recording that paved the way for Tonya P to actively pursue her God given talents and in 2005 she recorded and released her very first single titled "With Me." The debut single proved to be a certified hit gaining her steady airplay both locally and abroad along with bookings to perform on some of the biggest shows in the city. By 2007 Tonya P was awarded a Canadian Reggae Music Award "Top Female Newcomer". After receiving such an outstanding award for her achievements, Tonya P's career sky rocketed with songs such as Love, Heaven in Your Arms, the dynamic cover version of Better In Time originally done by Leona Lewis, and many more.

As she continued to write and release her music, she began to receive many more acknowledgements for all her hard work including a 2011 Juno Nomination (Reggae Recording Of The Year) for her single Don't Wanna Go. This single was produced by Radford Ettienne aka Dr. Rad. She also received multiple Reggaexclusive Recognition Awards back to back. Tonya P has had the pleasure of performing on the Bob Marley Birthday Bash in Negril Jamaica (5+years), Calgary Reggae Festival, Montreal Reggae Festival, Ottawa Reggae Festival and Jamaica Day, just to name a few.

This gave her the opportunity to work with some of the Reggae greats in the music industry throughout the years such as Marcia Griffiths, Berres Hammond, Bunny Wailer, Freddie McGregor, Luciano and many more. Tonya P is not only a phenomenal artist, she also has extreme consideration for the people on a deeper level than just acquiring fans.
