Product notities

"And the day came that the risk it took to remain tightly wound in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom." ~Anais Nin As her very personal musical memoir pens, "I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not", Tiana is a singer, songwriter, pianist, visionary, businesswoman and idealist whose story, while neither crafted out of a fairytale nor as disturbingly touching as a Lifetime movie, is one of inspiration and hope for the dogged dreamers of today. Her music is a feast for the ears with an eclectic array of sounds dabbling in Pop, R&B, Rock, Jazz and a sprinkling of Contemporary-like grooves. SONG BIO'S - uncover the hidden meanings and inspiration behind each song...... 1. Teaser The role of playing the nice, good girl, while possibly satisfying in daily life, can grow tiresome. I believe a little playful objectification of men can be quite exhilarating for a lady. It's the ultimate role reversal from a societal point of view. My hats off to the girls who know what they want and position themselves to get exactly that. The juiciness of being a woman is rich with opportunities to explore all the experiences possible while expressing her essence. Here's to unabashed self-expression. After all, isn't all fair in love and war? 2. Shake The Daydream The human spirit is so awe inspiring to me. In moments, we are such brilliant creatures, creating beautiful satisfaction-filled lives, exuding love, wisdom, strength and creativity yet at times we find ourselves falling into the black hole of victimhood, weakness, fear, doubt, suppression, failure and trance-like laziness. Countless times in my life I've been called upon to give advice and countless of others' I've been the one calling to seek guidance. Pretty much the answers I've given and received always seem to be along the same lines.....hence the message behind Shake The Daydream. This is my shoulder-shaking-wake-up-call to myself and I hope it serves you in a similar way. 3. A Puppet For You Until the creation of this song, I really didn't think of myself as a pop songwriter and consequently didn't take this very seriously when my producer handed me the rough chords to write to. Surprising to us both, this turned out to be the quickest and easiest song we wrote on the entire album. I love the irony of what can happen to a strong, sassy and confident woman who is used to being in control with members of the opposite sex, which I had a blast portraying in "Teaser", but once she's face to face with her match in love and lust she can become the most eager and passive slave to love's whims. The joke is oftentimes on you when it comes to the game of love. 4. If I Died Today Although our lives don't open up as many magical moments as either of us would like, my brother and I have conversations that touch me deeply. Oftentimes our talks can turn to a very soulful and spiritual place and during a recent phone call we were both present to how blessed our lives are and before he hung up he said, "If I died today I would be satisfied." Hence the inspiration for this song........ I hope it's message resonates with you. Carpe diem! 5. Bleed There are moments in life that take your breath away because of the searing and un-resolvable pain they inflict upon your soul. This song was written as an antidote to those moments. Not to enable or encourage the one in pain to literally justify taking their own life but to let that pained soul know that in the darkest hour, they are not alone. Someone else has experienced unspeakable pain and purged it from their being by way of a song. In the absolute indulging and surrendering to one's darkest feelings as I hope can be felt through this song, a seed of healing may sprout. 6. Not One But Half of Two During the emotional and intimate process of writing this album, a friendship was formed between my producer and I. What started out as an indescribable energetic connection between us, fueled by deep trust and constant communication, gradually morphed into a soul-mate kind of love. Gratitude from every cell of my being doesn't begin to describe my appreciation for encountering the man that makes me whole. I'm no longer a singular being but half of two, humbled in the face of love. 7. Ode to the Haters Coming from an upbringing wrought with suppression and judgment, the completion of this album is a rebellious victory for me with this song specifically having quite a cathartic effect. This is not a message intended to be confrontational or accusatory yet thought-provoking and empowering. Judgment, criticism and squelching of others' sense of worth are present in our daily interactions in the most insidious to overtly aggressive ways. My belief is the more we each empower and validate our inherent worth as human beings, we'll focus less on hurting each other and more on having our collective light shine brighter. "A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle." -Proverb 8. Johhny Ray This is the only song on the album I did not personally pen. When I heard it for the first time, with it's intricate layers of musical genius, jazzy attitude and funk fusion, what came to mind was the epic experience this would be to perform live. It reminds me of the song, "Roof's Garden", sung by an artist I deeply respect, Al Jarreau. I appreciate that, to the unsuspecting ear, this could be perceived as musical chaos, yet listening more closely you might being to discern brilliance. What a thought-provoking metaphor for life itself. 9. Absolute Exposure During a troubling time in my life I sought the support of a therapist that during our one and only appointment encouraged me to make a picture that would capture the fear and terror I had of moving forward toward my dreams. I needed to somehow acknowledge the pain of my past in order to accomplish the dreams of my future yet at the same time open up vulnerably with trust to the love of the people around me. With a box of Crayola's and a blank piece of construction paper, I had my picture complete within minutes. The images on the page reached out to me so much, giving me a visual of my fear, that instantly it helped me access the confidence and sense of safety I needed to move forward in my life. This song is the music that matches that childlike drawing. I now know it's safe to step off the cliff of the unknown.......I will fly. 10. The Right Time Sometimes the miracles you're praying for are right under your nose. They may not arrive in the package you've anticipated, at the time you are attached to, or in the obvious way you might expect but I'm beginning to think that these might be little tests presented to us to gauge our sensitivity to our connection to Universal Flow. Our consciousness is calling in serendipitous miracles all the time. Although the circumstances defied the reasonable and the package wasn't an obvious fit by my then standards nor by the expectations of my family and society, I'm so grateful I opened to the knocks from my soul mate on my life's door. 11. If Maybe Reviewing the autopsy of failed relationships is one of life's more sobering experiences. I've witnessed so many well-meaning women walk away from relationships in a haze of confusion and make-wrong spinning endlessly in the "what if's" of a situation that is out of their control. This is my nod to you. 12. Take a Walk With Me In moments it feels like I'm a vulnerable, unguided leaf floating aimlessly down life's river. I'm just bobbing up and down at the whims of the water, having no say in my destiny and believing that I'm merely a victim to the elements that surround me. In these moments I've forgotten that I'm equipped with oars that give me the power to have my experience, my life, my destiny go the way I intend. As I look around at the leaves around me in this torrent called life, I would venture to say some of you may have forgotten your power as well. To you I say, come take a walk with me....... 13. The Mirror, the Choice Spending the first half of my life convincing myself that the box I squirmed inside of to please the standards of those around me became painful as I realized the sale of my soul's satisfaction was grossly underpriced. My life's map is now to operate with integrity to myself in my commitment to bring unconditional love to others, to remain spiritually grounded, to make a difference on this planet and to be a beacon for inspiration, undauntable expression, wisdom and kindness. To the degree I can love and celebrate myself is the degree with which I can empower the worth of my fellowman.
