Rising Artist Spotlight: Katy Tiz

Looking for some new music this week? Katy Tiz may just be the pop ear candy that you are looking for. Her debut single, Famous has just debuted and it’s definitely a lot of fun. “I’m always the loud one,” says Katy Tiz. And it’s true. But lets be honest. The loud ones usually get heard first. Am I right? This UK export/import is gearing up to release her debut album on Lava/Universal Republic which blends pop synths, hip hop and little bit of reggae. The lead-off single is sure to get everyone pumped up.

At just 17-years-old, Tiz would join her older brother for local acoustic gigs. The duo would trek up to London from the suburbs and play open mics, doing covers and originals. When her big bro decided to pursue production, she focused on developing a style of her own. After flirting with a myriad of genres that didn’t seem right, Tiz came to a pivotal realization in early 2011. “I was trying to mold myself into what everyone else thought I should do,” she sighs. “Then, I decided, ‘F**k it! I’ll make the music I love’. That’s when things started to work out.” Smart move on her part.

Famous is definitely a style of its own. This pop ear worm has some cute little lyrics that will definitely be stuck in your head for a while. She sings out, “Don’t act like you don’t know who I am. You just mouthed it to your friend. No question, you only want to f*ck me ’cause I’m famous, get your friends to tape us.” She’s definitely calling out all the star f*ckers out there. Check out the lyric video and a NSFW Discovery Channel slash Animal Planet version that will make you chuckle.
