TALIIA is a pop singer & lyricist whose musical journey has taken her all the way to London, where she is currently a student at The British Academy of New Music on the Artist Development course.

TALIIA’s songs are a mix of modern, relevant lyrics and catchy uptempo tunes that can be described as a combination of cosmic electro pop with exceptional lyrics & sexy rap. Her debut single "Fiesta" blends an urban vibe with R&B beats and funky grooves – melodious rap from a female perspective. Together with her EP "The One From September" it will be released this summer. TALIIA is a well-rounded artist who delivers a complete entertainment package of performing arts and is putting together a team of professional musicians to create a band and prepare a live concert programme.

The critical response to her music has been stellar so far. Amy Redmond (BBC Radio 1 producer) has said:

‘Sounds great, well produced good pop music, ready for euro charts surely!’

Having received support of Jim Gellatly show on Amazing Radio, Artist Controlled Radio & Croydon Radio, Tom Robinson picked the single "Fiesta" by TALIIA for his May BBC Radio 6 Introducing Mixtape, followed by exposure from EDA Music Radio, Rock&Pop Radio, Splash Music, HCF Radio, EGH Radio, Breeze Radio, UN.radio & many more.

"One of our Summer's Hot tracks for sure!" - writes Jérôme Dumortier, RKC Radio manager.
