I’m Tina, a singer/songwriter living in Germany and missing my family back in Canada. I wrote my first real song in 2017 after my first breakup. I was 20 years old and had just moved to Germany for an exchange year when my high-school boyfriend and I ended it over the phone. I went to a piano room of the university where I should have been practicing Mozart, and wrote a song called House instead, in order to process my feelings. It wasn’t a song meant to be performed or released, just a new-found form of self-therapy. In fact, pursuing a career as a singer/songwriter had never been at the front of my mind, though I had a secret dream to be a singer when I was in high school. At the time, saying that out loud seemed too silly. I’d try to write a song once in a while and uploaded covers to YouTube, but never pursued the idea, and I left for university to study classical piano. After a winding road the next few years quitting music all together and moving to Germany permanently with no real plan, I bought a keyboard and slowly found my way back to music. In 2020 I started writing more songs and discovered how important of a role that played in my life. I released five of those songs in 2022, and in the process of creating them found out a lot about the kind of music I want to make, the kind of artist I want to be, and about myself as a person in general (it’s true that your 20s are for self-discovery, who knew). These new tracks are my first self-produced releases and I am so excited to share them with the world. THANK YOU for your support and for turning my long-secret dream into a reality.
