Her brand new five track EP ‘TIA’ has now launched on major streaming platforms and was recorded in collaboration with esteemed industry veteran Steve Clisby, who is known for jamming with Jimi Hendrix. On top of digital release, MGM are also distributing a physical CD release if streaming isn’t your style.
Tia hails from Sydney’s north beaches, is of Barbadian/Irish heritage and was surrounded by diverse range of music growing up. She’s had an interest in music from a young age and was always performing in local musicals and showcases before being accepted into the Australian Institute of Music at the age of 15. She initially dreamed of becoming an actor which is evident through her performance in the new music video for her track ‘Do Over’.
The EP ‘TIA’ covers a range of genres, kicking off with addictive pop track ‘Coke & Mentos’. With electronic undertones and upbeat catchy vocals it makes a strong start to the EP that is bound to get you up and dancing, perfect for fans of major electro-pop frontrunners such as Charli XCX and CHVRCHES. It then flows into the second track ‘Keep On Coming Back’ which boasts a stripped back, relaxed vibe which is very easy on the ears. If you loved that one, The EP also includes the Chuw Fu remix (known for his production and remix work for megastars such as Lady Gaga and Rihanna) adding extra layers including an additional rap verse meaning that there is a version to suit whatever mood you’re in. ‘Do It Over’ is the third track on the EP showing a more vulnerable side to Tia’s songwriting and exploring the emotions behind a difficult breakup with a beautiful music video to go along with it. Then the EP winds to a close with soft electro pop track ‘Synergy’ which showcases Tia’s captivating vocals in a toe tapping track that leaves you wanting more.
