Vocalist and songwriter, Tanya Tiet is a Billboard charting independent recording artist on the climb. This Native New Yorker has taken her well-honed talents from the local streets of her home city, across the nation, to the desert mountains of Phoenix, Arizona and over clouds and seas to lands around the globe. Recently featured in an article on the Aquarius View internet magazine site, Tiet was described as “…a microphone wielding, microburst of a songstress who appears and disappears from venues all over the nation as she sees fit. Yet, beneath the layers of live performances, there lives a pensive and prolific writer.”
