Q : Who do you classify as gender-wise?
T8iana:" I am a trans woman, legally female."
Q: Who are your most notable musical influences?
T8iana: "I draw inspiration from the pop acts of 70s, 80s, 90s - George Michael, Joni Mitchell,
Freddie Mercury, Mary J Blige and bands like Blur & Nirvana."
Q : What keeps you up at night?
T8iana: "The thought that a countless number of innocent boys & girls who possibly have an LGTBI orientation are suffering around the world, with no real fault of theirs - trying to fit in, trying to put up an act or being forced into 'normalcy' by strong parental figures, even in 2022. Grrrrrrr!"
Q: What do you hope to do with your songs and music?
T8iana : I wish to send a message, to empower and support young LGTBI people but not in a serious way, but rather through uplifting dance music. I wish my music and lyrics to implicitly pass important messages to everyone. I think it is important for artists to use their gifts in a meaningful way.
