Tawiah returns to the alt-soul scene with her much anticipated debut album Starts Again. Independent at last and free to express her artistry in all its raw glory, Starts Again is an exploration of her identity as queer woman of colour raised in a Pentecostal family and signed to a label who “couldn’t market her”.
Co-produced by Sam Beste (of critically acclaimed Hejira), the old friends came together to complete Tawiah’s debut album.
“After a week in the studio with the band (The Seeds) the production process with Sam and I took two years of long joyful studio sessions, we had no clear direction, just good vibes, time, and the freedom to create whatever came, it was a privilege to collaborate in this way”.
With the album completed Tawiah collaborated with Studio Myrrh (spatial artist) to think about her aesthetic for the show “we derived a rich narrative from the album which informed the art direction and further collaborations. Collectively we have created an exciting, immersive live show”
Momentum funding has given me the opportunity to take my show on the road!
