Australian Born, L.A.-based singer TIAAN and her sound can only be described as sexy. Blame the slow, sparse R&B beats, the deep, deep bass or the subject matter of some of the songs: passion-fuelled affairs and the all-encompassing emotions they evoke. Her captivating debut EP, released in April on Swedish super producer Arnthor Birgisson’s Aristotracks label, TIAAN takes the adventurous spirit of Timbaland-era Aaliyah, the classy soul of Sade, and the futuristic feel of Jessie Ware, and blends them into a beguiling hybrid of seductive pop.
The daughter of Chicago-born bassist, Doug Williams, and a music-mad mother, TIAAN started singing on car journeys with her dad and, by her early teens, had been bitten by the performing bug. Upon leaving school, TIAAN toured Australia and the world in her Dad's band where she learnt what it means to be a professional. But it was during co-writing sessions with Gary Clark (formerly of Danny Wilson) and Aristotracks' wunderkind Lukipop, that TIAAN stumbled on the sexy sound that defines her EP. “We did one song that set a fire off in everyone,” she recalls. “It was low and sensual, minimal and bassy, dark and incredibly sexy. I went a lot deeper with the lyrics than I ever had before. From then on, it was easy to write music that we loved and that suited my voice.”
