TAMIA

 

 

For the love-starved man who craves the warmth of a good woman, Tamia’s songs ignite flames of hope that romance and love still exists. Songs like "The Way I Love You", "Too Grown For That" and "Can’t Get Enough Of You" fuse Tamia’s sinfully smothering vocal abilities with Darkchild’s signature bounce to every beat. Don’t forget the woman’s anthem of 2007, that you can hear coming out of every house window and car stereo, “Me” from Tamia’s latest album Between Friends.

Between Friends is an R&B guide to the beauty and dynamics of relationships. Mixing the writing styles of Shep Crawford, the producing finesse of Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins and singer and songwriter, Tamia’s maturity as an artist, you will find imagination and fluidity resonates throughout the entire album.

Since her last album, More, Tamia is doing it all: being a supportive wife to husband NBA star Grant Hill, mother of Myla Grace and Lael.

Investing her own money, without waiting for anyone to propose a new album, Tamia created her very own record label, Plus One Music Group. Tamia has finally been able to make music she wants to create and represent the “real” Tamia. She has involved herself in every aspect of this project, putting forth an album that truly is personal and soulful.

"I’m always going to be that little 6 year-old singing into her brush with her mom yelling, "Tamia, please stop!" Music is just a part of me and everything I do, every step that I take. I am still thankful and amazed because I still see myself as that little girl with a brush."

Tamia’s big break came when she was featured on Qunicy Jones’ Q’s Jook Joint album, with her own solo effort following a few years later. During that time frame, this previously unknown singing sensation received three Grammy nominations: Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for "You’ve Put A Move On My Heart;" Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group with Vocal for "Slow Jams," which she performed with Babyface and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for her work with Brandy, Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan on the single "Missing You" from the Set It Off soundtrack. To top it all off, the amazing Tamia was also nominated for her fourth Grammy in 1999 for her duet with Eric Benet, the #1 "Spend My Life With You."

In 2005, Tamia traveled with a full band to South Africa to perform. "It was amazing from the start to finish. "It made everything so much more fun; we went to do a 45-minute show, but ended up doing almost two hours. I had a band that loved to play and we just went over there to have one big jam session.

There’s nothing like being on stage and having the crowd sing every word of your song. After ten years as a recording artist, the experience is still very touching. You never know how your music touches and affects people. This experience rejuvenates me. It energizes me to continue to give my fans a true essence of me... my music."
