J-14 is scouting out the hottest music around...and this week's pick is Katy Tiz.
Here are four things you need to know about Katy Tiz whose new single "Heart" is out now and is currently finishing up her debut album!
UK artist Katy Tiz first started singing at the age 17 with her older brother at local music gigs in London. "I only started singing when I was 17, I never decided that it was going to be my job I just decided I wanted to do it until I fell out if love with it..." She tells J-14. "And guess what? I'm still in love!"
Katy went from living in her friend's basement in London to Los Angeles, where she's currently working on her debut album. She best describes her sound as "pop/reggae with a urban lick."
Katy has a variety of musical inspirations including Alicia keys, Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder, and Rihanna, who she'd love to collaborate with. "Riri...... ugh she's awesomeness!" She says.
Her latest single is a track called "Heart". "It's what every girl really wants to say to there ex," she tells J-14. "Breaking up with someone hurts and we've all been through it so I know you can all relate!"
