EY: Tell us about Tatiana. Where are you from originally and when did you realize you wanted to be an entertainer?
TO: Well, I have loved to sing since the age of 3. Music has always been apart of my life and I realized I wanted to be an entertainer for the rest of my life when I went into Junior High at Toledo School for the Arts. I am originally from Toledo, OH and I moved to New York after graduating from the arts school.

EY: Describe your musical style and influences.
TO: My musical style is Urban pop. It’s a combination of pop and R & B. I love almost every style of music. My favorite artist is Alicia Keys but I have plenty of musical influences.

“I really feel what I am singing.”

EY: What do you think you have to offer that makes your music different from what’s currently out there?
TO: I believe people can relate to my lyrics. I try to deliver a message in every song. I feel thatmy music has a catchy vibe to it and I think that different races love it no matter what style of music they like.

EY: Your stage credits range from “Rent”, “Annie”, and as Dorothy in “The Wiz”. How has performing in those musicals helped you evolve as an artist?
TO: Learning the art of dance, acting, and singing makes performing on stage more entertaining to watch. It also helped me create stronger more well defined characters and emotion in my voice for recordings.
EY: Tell us about your single “Pendulum”, which is garnering so much interest. What inspired the song it sounds so personal?
TO: My writers wrote the song for me. Then, when I heard the concept, I found how it related to me so much more than I thought it would. I really took the song and everything it meant and put all of my all into the recording of the song. When I heard the first mix, I realized it was going to be one of my favorite songs that I have worked on.

EY: What’s the concept behind your debut album and when can we expect its release?
TO: Its about really getting to know me as a person. A lot of my writing or songs I pick up are phases or situations in my life. Its hard to say when the release is going to be. Hopefully soon.

EY: Your live shows are described as emotional and powerful. What is it that enables you to put so much passion into your singing and live performances?
TO: I really feel what I am singing. I also want the audience to take something from my performance that they can relate to their life.

“I love every second of performing and the process of artist development .”

EY: Having won the International Modeling and Talent Association competition three times, how do you feel about such an accomplishment?
TO: It’s a great honor. They really have helped me to advance my career. Without them, I wouldn’t be with the current management team.

EY: And how do you maintain that focus without getting fazed?
TO: I have a true passion for what I do so its hard for me to get side tracked. I love every second of performing and the process of artist development. So, I’m constantly learning new things and that keeps me entertained.
EY: You’ll be apart of the reality show “Garo Unleashed” on The Sundance Channel this summer. Can you tell us a little about the show and your role in it?
TO: It’s a fashion reality show about transforming. I played myself and Garo took my style and made a whole new image for me. He got to know me as a person first and then he reached into my ethnic background and mixed the two. Because I perform, he created an outfit for my showcase in New York.

EY: What other plans do you have in the works?
TO: I’m currently working on some co-writes with well-known writers in the industry. Hopefully I can start a tour so my fans can see what I love to do the most, perform live.

EY: Please leave a message for your fans.
TO: I love every single one of you for keeping me going! Never stop doing what you want to do!
