Biography

Recent winner of the 2010 Philadelphia Songwriters Project Songwriting Competition!

Often described as quirky and kind, Tania Alexandra emanates her love of the authentic oddities of life. Her music reflects this as does her mission: "to spread creative energy like a colorful weed". This tumbleweed undertaking has made Tania's experience nothing more than eclectic. A native of Colorado, Tania has resided in Philadelphia, where she infused herself into the arts community as a singer-songwriter, music and movement specialist, session vocalist, vocal arranger, and human being.
A result of Tania's work has been 3 albums, "Chrysalis" (1999),"Emergence" (2003), and her newest release "Abnormal" (November 2009). She has also had the joy of performing in venues and festivals, such as Bethlehem Musikfest (2010, 2009), The Kimmel Center (2010, 2009), THe Philadelphia FolkFest (2010), The SCFD Bear Fair, Coors Amphitheatre, (2004). Albuquerque Film Festival (2004), and has had radio play on WXPN 88.5 Philadelphia, and KUNM 88.9 FM Albuquerque.
