As she gears up to release her much-anticipated debut album in 2019, Tawiah will trace the journey she’s been over the last 10 years, sharing music old and new and talking about the professional and personal ups, downs and bumps in the road she’s encountered along the way.
From touring the world and record label dramas, losing and finding her creative voice and struggles with faith and family, Tawiah will talk about how she’s arrived at this point – inspired, focused and excited to embark on the next chapter.
Tawiah is a singer, songwriter and DJ. Her voice has been discovered and admired by the likes of Mark Ronson, Corinne Bailey Rae, Cee Lo Green, The Guillemots and Gilles Peterson.
She has performed live all over the world, at festivals such as Glastonbury, Wireless and Coachella, and on a two year world tour with Mark Ronson supporting Jay Z – helping to affirm her reputation as a prodigious live performer. Following earlier releases of several EPs, her debut album is currently in production.
Her sound is unprocessed and uncompromising, her voice a singular instrument that alternates between thoughtful restraint and impassioned abandon. The vestiges of Tawiah’s early vocal training in church contrast subtly against the distinctive south London accent that has helped to place her firmly in the vanguard of a diverse, British, alternative soul movement in recent years.
