Artist of the Month: Tianna Woods

The saying “She’s not just a pretty face” is one of those phrases you hear all the time; but never has it held more true than with country music artist Tianna Woods! Not only a singer/songwriter, but a multi-instrumentalist, actor, dancer and choreographer, Tianna crushes all stereotypes and barriers with her impressive list of skills.

Tianna’s love for entertaining started early. Trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop and Modern, as well as Piano, Drums, Guitar, Alto Saxophone, Clarinet and fiddle, Tianna spent her youth tucking away important years of experience. She attended the Etobicoke School of the Arts, and graduated with a triple major in Music Theatre, Music and Dance, and later finished her education with a University degree in business, and a minor in music.

During her educational years she continued to pursue her passion in musical theatre, dance and music, appearing in multiple musicals, including the lead role of Anne in “Anne of Green Gables”, which took her overseas to Japan. Since graduating university, her knack of business smarts and high calibre talent has landed her on festival and fair stages across Ontario, taken her to Nashville to develop her songwriting, and has helped her promote 4 singles to Canadian Country Radio; 2 which landed in the top 100.

Her singles “Dancin’ with Elvis” and “I’m There” showcase her powerful vocals and emotive ability and her live shows are full of energy and the type of coordination and choreography that only a skilled dancer could present. “Determined” and “driven” describe her perfectly, but her personality is warm and approachable, making fast fans at her performances and live appearances. Her big heart also takes her talents to many charitable events like the Relay For Life.

She is currently working on her debut Country Record with CCMA Award Winning producer Rick Hutt, and her next single “Can You Hear Me Now” hits Canadian Country Radio Sept 30, 2013. This winter she will be spending her time blending her unique variety of skills into a special stage show that showcases her dancing, singing and musical ability. Stay tuned to see what’s next for this Rising Canadian Artist!
