My name is TJ and my artist name is Tawni Bias. I create in layers with a focus on emotional content and healing.
Being that vocal chords are one of our most unique features—my debut album, SEL Fellow, is an exploration into both the emotional cadence and the hidden sonic guidance they carry. The vocal work and sampling found therein done entirely by one changing, but consistent, voice.
Created from a heart of independence the album is filled with small room acoustics, ruminating lyrics, hopeful trumpets, isolated thoughts, small mistakes, and large moments.
I set out, with Tawni Bias, to be vulnerable in hopes that it’s resonance may help others do the same. I hope it finds you well.
