Tawiah is a singer/songwriter and DJ. Her sound is unprocessed and uncompromising, her voice a singular instrument that alternates between thoughtful restraint and impassioned abandon. The vestiges of Tawiah’s early vocal training in church contrast subtly against the distinctive south London accent that has helped to place her firmly at the vanguard of a diverse yet notably British alternative soul movement.
She has won Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Award for Best Newcomer and toured the globe for two years Mark Ronson supporting Jay Z which helped to affirm her reputation as a prodigious live performer. She has collaborated with many artists including Cee-Lo, Paul Oakenfold, Wiley, Professor Green & Smiler, Ghostpoet, Eric Lau, Sam Sparro and more.
Tawiah has performed live with Santigold, Ghostface Killer, and Ghostpoet, at festivals such as Glastonbury, Wireless, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Indie Fuse (Ghana), Applesap (Amsterdam), Jazzystan (Khazakstan) to name a few.
