My name is Tatiana, & I’m a singer-songwriter. When it’s late, & I realize that there is truly nothing or no one to save me but myself, I pick up my guitar. I pour everything into the music, & it really does make everything all better (pardon the cliché). Music is my best friend.
I grew up in North Jersey & I started singing when I was 10. I always knew I wanted to perform. I loved words, & grew up listening to Phantom of the Opera, Cat Stevens, Carly Simon, Simon & Garfunkel, & Madonna. Even though I wasn’t the coolest kid on the block, when I went to Poland I was a rock star. One summer I was at a camp there, & people literally crowded around the cabin chanting, “We want the American girl!” over & over. It left quite an impression on me.
Back in NJ, my social life blossomed. I performed in the school choir & musicals, & I took guitar lessons. I listened to Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Guns & Roses, Fiona Apple, Jewel, Alanis Morissette, the Indigo Girls, the Beatles, Doors, & Janis
