TINASHE Star Signs

“I think it’s fun to be really creative and also be really comfortable when being creative, that’s what it’s like in my home studio; it’s just a room but it works.”

From acting to girl bands, American singer/songwriter, Tinashe, is leaving behind popular group The Stunners having just released her debut solo album, Aquarius, and is venturing down under for a visit that brings her to the Chevron Festival Gardens on Thursday, February 19. AARON BRYANS reports.

Beginning her entertainment career at the age of three, Tinashe has never been one to look back, venturing into modelling, acting and now her lifelong goal as a solo artist.

I was following my dreams and instincts from an early age,” Tinashe admits. “I was always doing things that were going to lead me to become successful in the long run.

I always knew that I wanted to do music, eventually. When I was 16 it started become more of a focus for me. I learnt not to take things personally and to just continue to push.”

Following the disbanding of popular girl group The Stunners, Tinashe decided to take her knowledge and experience into a solo atmosphere, setting up a home studio to record mix tapes.

It’s awesome,” Tinashe exclaims. “I think it’s fun to be really creative and also be really comfortable when being creative, that’s what it’s like in my home studio; it’s just a room but it works.”

I think being in a solo situation is a lot more fulfilling. The music was a lot less true to me.”

Sticking to her goals, Tinashe took the positive reception from her mixtapes out of the home and into a studio to record her debut album Aquarius involving outside producers to culminate the process.

The reception has been really amazing and I’m so excited about that,” she says. “It was awesome being able to travel and work with a lot of different and incredible producers.

For me it was definitely a learning process, but one I got comfortable it became really fun.”

With her first album released, Tinashe’s goals have only just begun to be achieved with some physical recognition hopefully on the horizon.

I’d like to win some awards like a Grammy, and obviously continue to perform.”
