With a voice that can stop a person in their tracks and a sense a humor that can make just about anybody laugh, Katy Tiz is an unstoppable force. Those traits, coupled with her unwavering passion for music, landed her an early record deal with Republic/Lava Records, Atlantic Records, and now a newly inked deal with Steve Madden’s record label, 5Towns Records.
Katy’s career started back in England in her teens. During those formative years she was creating music with her producer and songwriter brother, George, and their incredibly close friend, Rick Parkhouse. George and Rick are better known now for being the powerhouses behind Red Triangle Productions (Charlie Puth, 5 Seconds Of Summer and JamesArthur). Katy soon moved to LA and recorded her single The Big Bang; the track led to Clear Channel/iHeartRadio naming Katy their “On The Verge” artist after the release of the single, a huge feat for an unsigned musician. The single entered on the Hot 100 chart and scored Katy a record label deal with Atlantic. Her next big break came with her release of Whistle (While You Work It). The break led to Katy performing twice at The Today Show, at On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and she graced the stages of countless Pride shows and festivals. In addition to her past successes, Katy was recently announced as one of the faces of the Steve Madden GenSteve Spring campaign.
Katy is sure to reach new heights with the release of her upcoming single Life. Dripping in pop gold, Life is co-written with and features Ed Drewett (OllyMurs, OneDirection, The Wanted, LittleMix) and Katy’smusical growth has led to this single being her most raw and enchanting yet. She has been actively writing, spending her days and nights in the studio, and creating with a newly invigorated and fresh outlook.
Quote from Katy Tiz:
“The funny thing about life is that you just have to trust the timing of it. I’ve finally learned that. We created “Life” four years ago and I have believed in it ever since. “Life” shows a different side to me. I had full on laryngitis when I recorded it, so it’s less polished pop and more of an honest and stripped back track. The verses are reminiscent of an outlaw love, like Bonnie and Clyde. I haven’t actually stolen all my dad’s money, run away, and been locked up in jail (yet), but the hook is something we can all relate to. Everyone has felt that heart wrenching moment when you break up with someone or lose something amazing and you feel like you will have that painful feeling for life. So, I hope you like it and if you don’t, just tell me that you do. Here goes nothing!”
