Foreign Exchange: TAWIAH






















Over the years, Europe has produced some of the most talented artists. When you think of Europe soul, you think instantly of Soul II Soul,Heatwave,and Amy Winehouse; to name a few. However, when I think of an inspiring act from the soul genre to follow from Europe, I think of Beverly Tawiah. She goes by the moniker TAWIAH and she is a dope singer hailing from London,UK. Tawiah is a very corky and interesting soul singer. She possesses so much soul yet her lyrics and music are fun. Although she is not well known in the States,Tawiah is no stranger to exposure and notoriety. She has worked and performed with big names in the UK such as producer Mark Ronson and Mark De Clive-Lowe. Tawiah gives praises to her inspirations such Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, D'Angelo, and Erykah Badu. The 20 something year old singer/songwriter released her Ep In Jodi's Bedroom and has turned heads in the underground and is a must have. With comical and Cameo sounding songs like "Another One" and the electro-soul sounding "Broken Hearted", you'd wish this six song EP wouldn't leave you hanging. I'm sure there is an album in the making. For now, we'll just have to chill and enjoy the rhythm's and sounds of what's offered.

Tawiah is THE most exciting artist coming out of the UK right now. Her EP is fantastic (but at 6 songs i need more!!). She is currently working on a full length effort which hopefully we will see later this year.
