New York Funk singer and songwriter, Tatiana Owens is conquering stage, screen, and stream, one song at a time. On television her music has been featured on CBS, MTV, VH1 Logo, Lifetime, CMT, BET, USA Network, The CW Network, The Paramount Network and Showtime. She has appeared all over print media and the blogosphere. Billboard Magazine chose her as one of their “Top 5 Artists To Watch.”
Tatiana has performed at legendary NYC venues like The Cutting Room, Arlene’s Grocery and twice at the historic Lincoln Center. She has even shared the stage with the great Stevie Wonder, performing background vocals on his “Songs in the Key of Life” tour. The singer’s views on the YouTube comedy channel “The Key Of Awesome” are numbered in the tens of millions. And she has an off-Broadway resume which includes lead roles in iconic productions like “A Chorus Line,” “Harlem Remembered” and “Memphis.”
At the heart of all these accomplishments is a soulful and powerful voice with which she drops a R&B wail just expertly as she turns a Pop hook. Tatiana’s live shows have wowed audiences from Los Angeles, to New York and from Nashville to Detroit. She has a classic style that is at once old school and also refreshingly new. All of her skill and style is on full display in the old school Funk of the singer’s new single.
Still A Rose
“Still a Rose” moves along on a slow groove, steeped in a crunchy Funk sound that brings to mind legends like Prince and George Clinton. In my mind i can picture Bootsy Collins in glttery bell bottoms laying down that mellow bass groove as the Purple One dances behind an electronic keyboard and rips off dozens of filthy synth horns riffs. Front and center stage at this fantasy gig is the lady in charge, Tatiana Owens.
The singer delivers an empowering message of self-confidence with lines like, “I’m more than the color of my eyes.” She flows smoothly from a sultry R&B tone to Christina-worthy soulful howls. Tatiana digs notes from deep in her soul and belts them out with all kinds of badass. When she sings, “don’t underestimate me,” we believe her.
