As a vocalist and a live performer, Tanya Tiet (pronounced: tee-yay) has a style all her own as she impulsively swoops from soothing tones that caress emotions to fire-laced bellows that inspire celebration through movement. Tiet keeps us guessing and for that reason alone, we keep watching.
Vocalist and songwriter, Tanya Tiet is a Billboard charting independent recording artist on a journey through the creation and celebration of music. 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. An article on the Aquarius View internet magazine site once described Tiet 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.”
Tanya Tiet has appeared on recordings, shared stages and video scenes, wearing various “hats,” with several indie and world renowned artists alike, including CeCe Peniston, Jamie Foxx, Mothers Favorite Child, Nik West, Teri Tobin, J. White and most notably, Sister Sledge. In fact, Tanya began touring regularly with Sledge in the summer of 2012 and continues to help spread love around the world with this internationally cherished group of Sisters to this day.
Tanya Tiet also spent several years as a co-collaborator in the Mothers Favorite Child project, writing songs with producer Paris Toon. Their single, “Never”, which featured Tiet’s vocals arrived in the top ten on Billboard’s Hot New Singles chart soon after its release. Most recently, Tanya’s collaborative skills re-appeared on the single, “Reflections of a Disco Ball” which currently features the voice of dance music queen, CeCe Peniston. Wherever you may find Tanya Tiet (or her voice), you will undoubtedly experience a genuine, quality performance that will leave you wanting more.
