Tiana Major Graces Drivetime With Amanda Star
With a growing reputation for scouting out some of the freshest up and coming talent in the UK, Amanda Star will be catching up with the hotly tipped trendsetter and tastemaker of the music scene - Tiana Major9 !
Despite falling in love with R&B and Hip Hop first, it was Jazz that really captured Tiana's heart with the artist describing the genre as 'free and uncompromising' - a perfect comparison to the East London born songbird.
Growing up in a British Jamaican house-hold with her Christian mother and two siblings, it's no surprise that Tiana has always been surrounding by music from Gospel to Garage. But the church would soon become her catalyst for her passion to perform with the young star delving into the world of performing arts during ehr early teens. Despite being able to act, sing and dance, her love of music always came out on top with Tiana choosing to take her music career to the next level.
In 2014, Tiana entered ‘MOBO Unsung’, a nationwide competition for songwriters that eventually ended with her becoming the first runner up. Regardless of coming 2nd, it failed to discourage her as she now had extra exposure to elevate her career to the next level.
At the age of 21, Tiana has already graced many stages across Europe including supporting acts such as Ray BLK andElla Eyre as well as performing at Bulgaria's 'Meadows In The Mountains' festival and most recently blessing a busy West End Audience with a performance for 'Today At Apple' in the Apple Store on London's Regent Street.
Although still very young in her career, her self-penned lyrics and alternative sound is launching her into becoming one of London’s freshest emerging artists!
Don't miss Tiana Major9 on Drivetime with Amanda Star this Wednesday 12th April from 4-7pm
