Over the past six months, Australian future-soul artist Tiana Khasi has introduced herself via two critically-acclaimed singles 'Nuketown' & 'They Call Me', both vibrant, powerful statements of intent that honour her Samoan and Indian heritage. Streamed over 3 million times prior to her official debut thanks to features with The Kite String Tangle, Golden Vessel and labelmate Sampology, her voice has been called many things: "elegant" (Life Without Andy), "most dope" (Audiosteez) and "as venomous as it is honey-sweet" (Happy).
Now, Tiana Khasi employs that same, singular voice in its most defining task yet: the debut tour to celebrate her long-awaited debut EP Meghalaya, out now via Soul Has No Tempo.
Titled for Meghalaya, India - the land of the Khasi people whose name Tiana proudly bears, one of the few remaining matriarchal societies on planet Earth - Meghalaya was co-written and produced by Sampology; and is a rich tapestry of styles and influence, with inspiration drawing from themes of self-empowerment, family and heritage, the results of collaborating with contemporary musicians while studying jazz.
A trained jazz vocalist and keystone artist in her hometown whose live reputation precedes her via her work fronting local jazz/hip-hop collective Astro Travellers, Tiana's unique sound has seen her support Jamaican-American "TrapHouseJazz" sensation Masego, Swedish soul artist Fatima, acclaimed Australian collective 30/70, labelmate Laneous and more.
Tiana will be touring with her band and announcing very special supports soon! Vinyl and merch will also be available at each show.
