'Tiana Major9' a Jazz fusion singer-songwriter from East London and no, the 9 isn't part of my username loool
How did you end up where you are in life right now?
Woah! I probably ask myself this everyday but honestly, I believe it's persistence and having a sick team around me. I'm glad they believe in me as much as they do.
What’s been your proudest moment to date?
I've had loads recently (all praise) but it would have to be when I supported my friends Mic Lowry at their headline show in London. One of their fans was singing along to my song "Crazy Things” and she told me that as soon as she found out I was supporting them, she did her research and learned the lyrics. I swear to you, I'll never forget that. So cute!
Who or what would you cite as your biggest inspiration?
I'm inspired by people who genuinely love their craft and are exceptional at it. People who are themselves stimulate me.
What’s on your playlist right now?
A lot of homegrown artists; Stormzy, J Hus, Angel, Ray BLK, Lianne La Havana as well as Jazz musicians like Jamison Ross, Hiatus Kyote, classic Sarah Vanaugh & Natalie Cole.
Describe your style in three words…
My style is always retro, comfy and affordable.
If you could make an album with any three artists, dead or alive, who would you choose & why?
I'd choose Stevie Wonder, D'angelo and Darkchild just because they are all musical geniuses. I feel like we could real make pure magic if we ever got in a session.
Tell us a random fact about yourself…
I used to love playing football. Although I hardly watched it now, it was fun in school.
If you were a mood ring, what colour would you be?
Purple! Or maybe pastel pink.
What are you most looking forward to in 2017?
Bruhh! OMG I can't wait till we perform on talk shows, at the huge festivals as well as releasing new music. I'm so excited for you all to hear what we've been working on.
