House of Blues
Posted September 13th 2018
For six-time Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, Tamia, “Music is just a part of me and everything I do, every step that I take.” The Canadian-born vocal powerhouse has lived by that mantra for a career spanning over two decades and solidifying her as one of the most recognizable voices in R&B music.
Tamia’s voice has become synonymous with the new definition of soul and spawned hits like ‘You Put A Move On My Heart’, ‘Stranger in My House’, Officially Missing You, ‘So Into You’ (later re-recorded with Fabolous in 2003), and the 2012 hit single ‘Beautiful Surprise’.
Tamia’s beautifully crafted sound is a reflection of her many inspirations and her innate ability to master genres from R&B and neo soul, to gospel, jazz and hip hop soul. “After 20 years I continue to be inspired by the places I visit and the people I meet, which allows me to include a piece of my experiences in the art I create.”
After signing with Def Jam Recordings in the summer of 2014, Tamia immediately began working on her sixth studio album collaborating with an impressive list of hitmakers. The sultry vocal stylings sift perfectly into the R&B melodies of production offered by some of the most notable producers in the music industry.
Tamia’s sixth studio project, Love Life (2015) is her highest charting album to date, reaching #1 on the Billboard R&B chart.
Tamia and her ‘Passion Like Fire Tour’ hits the House of Blues main stage next Tuesday, September 18th at 7:30p.
