Hot on the heels of the unveiling of her debut single Coke & Mentos last month, Sydney singer-songwriter Tia Beale’s debut five-track EP, TIA, has just hit streaming sites, with a physical CD release, distributed by MGM, also available. Recorded in collaboration with music industry veteran Steve Clisby (who has jammed with Jimi Hendrix and played alongside Kool & The Gang and Chaka Khan), who also acted as producer, Tia’s EP traverses a variety of genres, from the gentle balladry of Do It Over, to the dance floor pop of Coke & Mentos, synth and syncopated beats of Synergy, and hip-hop-flavoured Keep On Coming Back.
TIA is the stylish 20-year-old, who hails from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, studied at Sydney’s Australian Institute of Music (AIM) and initially harbouring dreams of becoming an actor, something which has clearly stayed with her, as you can see by her performance in the stunning video for Do It Over:
Do It Over, a track which though upbeat melodically, speaks lyrically of the devastating loss of a close friend of Tia’s to suicide.
Also featured on the EP is a remix of Tia’s track, Keep on Coming Back, featuring the talents of Chew Fu, known for his production and remix work on megastars such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Mariah Carey. Tia is now streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal, available to purchase digitally from Google Play and iTunes, and the CD is available via MGM distribution.
