– Tanya George –
Tanya George, can you present your musical project ?
I am a vocalist, songwriter and I also play instruments. I released a vocal looping EP called Normality which came out on Oct 30th. The entire EP is made from my vocals. I have played festivals, sold out headline shows and the streets creating original music.
How was your project born?
I created this project busking the streets of Melbourne. I decided to use my voice to make all the sounds and instruments instead of trying to carry extra equipment all the way to the city. Something about it stuck and it felt new. It’s super challenging to deliver it live and it has taught me to trust myself.
What does a day with Tanya George look like?
At the moment, my days have been different because Melbourne has been in full lockdown. I’ve been lucky enough to stay very busy releasing music and film clips all year though! Currently my day looks like this:
– Coffee, first things first!
– Meetings with my team for weekly schedules, run down, goal planning.
– Interviews on radio, over zoom or directly with magazines
– Content Creating, making sure I’m up to date with everything online
– Recording / videos / writing
– Replying to lots of emails and getting back to people
– Learning and growing each moment
– Watch something inspirational
– If lockdown wasn’t a thing, I’d be busking and gigging most days into the nights as well.
– A glass of Pino Noir, Netflix and bed.
What are your plans for the coming year ?
My EP Normality came out on October 30th so I will be pushing that ’til the end of the year and I have already started writing my album for next year. I will also be developing my vocal looping project into choir work and I am hoping to work with different community choirs. I will hopefully be able to go back to live shows, festivals and back on tour! For the meantime I will aim on creating COVID19 safe shows in smaller intimate audiences.
What would be your advice to young artists in development ?
You have to get a lot of No’s before you get some good Yes’s! Take it easy on yourself and remind yourself that you are growing a brand and developing as an artist. That takes time and patience so always balance your life.
What were your expectations using Groover and what did you get out of it?
I was searching for a new platform and a new way to reach people with my music that was some what affordable, quick and easy. I was able to connect with reviewers, blogs, playlists and people from overseas and new audiences that I didn’t know about before. It was nice to have them all in the one place to read about and learn.
And finally, what do you think Groover brings to the music industry ?
An affordable way for emerging artists to push their music when they can’t afford or find the correct publicist. It’s also a way to learn a lot independently about how to market and target yourself to the correct people in the correct areas, and who your target audience really is.
