Biography

Tawny is a singer/songwriter currently located in Nashvile, TN. Originally from Miami, Florida, where she attended the University of Miami's Jazz vocal program, she now focuses on writing and developing her own personal songwriting and vocal styles. Growing up with a dad who had 6 guitars laying around the house at any time, it was never hard to find an instrument to play. She started her first band in high school that played all over Miami, Florida as they worked on developing their sound and music. Upon moving to Nashville, Tawny made her musical presence known in several of the local music clubs and song-writing circles. Within the last two years, Tawny released her first full-length, self-titled album. While the album demonstrates the different styles and genres Tawny identifies with, the songs are tied together by her melodies and disticnt vocal quality. She is influenced by her love of classic rockers, the Beatles, while her appreciation of writers such as Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell definitely impact her songwriting style. Though she is influenced by these individuals, she retains a quality to her writing that is distinctly her own. We hope to see good things from this artist as she continues to grow and develop her style and own musical sound. Tawny's song "Blue" was recently featured on Lightning 100's Local Lightning Spotlight, which highlights up and coming musical talents in the Nashville area. Hope you enjoy what you hear! Tawny's EP and CD are available for purchase on iTunes!

Lyrics

Blue

Written By: Tawny George

There are two things I've been thinking
But I've got one that's on my mind
That it's you that I want
But it's you that I don't

So I'm blue like the skin on the water,
I'm blue like the air in the trees
I'm blue like the sky in the winter over me

And I've tried so hard to tell you
But it's too hard to explain
That it's you that I need
But it's you that I bleed

Chorus

Oh, I don't know
How I ever let you go
But, baby, oh, I love you so

Chorus

Where Were You?

Written By: Tawny George

I heard the sanctuary closes after eight
So where are all the saints supposed to go
Some went straight to Reno,
Some went to L.A.
But as for all the others, no one knows
So la, la-di-da, la-la-la-di-da-da-da-di-da

Where were you when the rains came
All the lightning crashing
Tears are falling to the ground
Where were you when the rains came
You were no where to be found

I left the bedroom window open
'Cuz it was getting late
When the rain started to fall
I didn't think that you would just fly away
Couldn't hold you in my walls

Chorus

Oh, I know I can't find you
Save me from myself before I drown

Chorus

Jacob

Written By: Tawny George

Will you fight until you beat him down
You've got his heart in your hands
And you burn it to the ground
You've been fighting this war
You've been here before
Are you tired?
You've been ringing the bells
From heaven to hell
Are you ready to be forgiven?

You're my Jacob
God will let you fall before He lets you go
You're my Jacob
God will let you fall before He lets you go

The desert is cold and the desert is black
You've got sand in your shoes from your 40-year trek
You've been clawing the air
You're fingers are bare
Are you thirsty
You've been here before
Are you still waiting for forgiveness?
You are forgiven

Chorus

Somewhere

Written By: Tawny George

Following the morning
The second star in the sky
You've been chasing all that you wanted
You've been chasing all you've become

Now the face of love is an angel
Just dying to be free
Now I know where I can find you
Somewhere, somewhere is where you'll be

Can it be that you've been dreaming
And nothing's real after all
I could be the one who holds you
When your wings let you fall

Chorus

A Million Years

Written By: Tawny George

I would wait for a million years
Just to hold you
I would wait for a million years
Just to know you

Time after time I've delivered these lines
But it's you I just can't ignore
Cuz it's you I've been looking for

I've could wait for a thousand days
Just to kiss you
But it would take but a single day
Just to miss you

Day after day I've delivered my praise But with you I have to be sure
Cuz' it's you I've been looking for

Time after time I've delivered these lines
But it's you I just can't ignore
Cuz it's you I've been looking for
