#7DaysofTanyaG – How Does Tanya G Describe Success as an Artist?

Tanya G started songwriting at the age of 11 years old, and established a place of serenity where she wrote her mixed feelings and experiences into songs. Her dynamic rhythm and attraction to the beat came of assistance during her street dance career with the dance crew “Platinum” for 5 years.

However, she came to realization that dancing alone wasn’t fulfilling her passion for music. So she hit the studio. Based on her belief that “Anything is Possible”, dancing background, love for UK garage and her aspirations towards artists such as Beyoncé, Sade and Mariah Carey; she later joined the girl group “Fe-Nix”. Whilst being in the group she has shared the stage with artists to the likes of; JLS, Pussycat Dolls, Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah and N-Dubz. 

In her career, she has also been heavily involved with Universal Records, both signed to and her songs featured on 5 complications released by them. Creating both memories and achievements to be proud of, “Can’t Feel Your Love” is one of her  trophies, which she debuted under the new management earlier this year. The single was produced by the likes of Paleface (known for producing the hit record “Do you Mind” featuring Kayla) and Urban Soul; this track leaves us with the mix of dance, a splash of deep house and soulful garage. The contagious melodies, vocalized by Tanya herself, will have you singing along and conjuring up feelings you didn’t realize you had before. And now “I Will Survive” is another trophy to add to her collection.

So as a part of our #7DaysofTanyaG we asked Tanya what she thought success is as an artist in the music industry and whether she has achieved success. 

“I feel like I have already succeeded, I have experienced so many things people would dream of. I have fulfilled my dreams of performing in front of thousands, doing music videos, hearing your track on radio, getting signed to a major label. For me success is not when you’re super famous and rich although to the average person that is success as an artist. For me to be in this industry for money or fame as those things may never happen and you will just waste a lot of time. You have to enjoy what you do, the next success that I’m going to have is when I finish recording my solo album.“
