Singer/Songwriter, Tiana Kocher is the next hot artist to come from the Philippines. The independent artist has been working non-stop, not even a global pandemic could stop her! Music has always been a big part of her life. In fact, in 2016 she moved to the UK to study musical theatre at the Cambridge School of Visual and performing arts. After receiving her degree, she moved to Los Angeles, CA, to continue to build her music career. Tiana Kocher has collaborated with several Grammy award winning recording artists and her more recently her track “Don’t Trip” has over 24 million views and counting on TikTok.
The contemporary r&b artist grew up listening to 90’s/early 2000 r&b singers and groups like Brandy, Monica, Keyshia Cole, Aaliyah, Tamia, SWV, and TLC. Her vibrant sound inspired by the era, encompasses love in all its forms, from romantic to friendships combined with bold textures and rhythms.
“I’ve listened to R&B for as long as I can remember. I just seemed to gravitate to that sound and beat over other genres of music.” She revealed, “One of the things that attracted me to this genre was definitely the runs. I love listening to the complex runs and riffs of R&B singers. I think it’s so beautiful.”
In 2017, Tiana Kocher released her first single, “Paint the Town” and its been all up hill since! Some of her accomplishments include being nominated for ‘Best Independent Music Video’ at the Hollywood Music in Media awards in 2018, opening for A$AP Rocky in Manila in 2019, and performing at the Pre-Grammy Soiree earlier this year.
Tiana Kocher lives, breathes, and sleeps music! Ultimately her goal would be touring the world and having the opportunity to meet her fans from different countries.
She says, “I can’t imagine never being part of the music industry. It’s my life. Eventually I’d love to write and vocal produce for more artists.”
The singer/songwriter signed to the independent label, Manila Music, is known for her individuality and uniqueness in style. If there’s one thing she wants her fans to take away from listening to her music is to embrace who they truly are.
“I know I don’t look like every other girl; I want young girls or just the youth in general to know that it’s okay being a little different.” She explained, “You were made to be different. I want people to feel unique.”
Just this month she released her single “FWU” along with the visuals she recorded all personally during the quarantine! She also reveals she has tracks with TLC, Sage the Gemini, Faith Evans and Demarco coming out soon!
