21 year old star in the making, Tyni, is a singer-songwriter, but no winsome girl perched on a stool with an acoustic guitar. Describing her music as being “like jumping into my very own Wonderland where each song's a different chapter of my very own fairytale”, Tyni’s singing and song-writing is state of the art pop music.
The atmospheric, glitchy Late Spring is taken from Tyni’s forthcoming debut EP and is released hot on the heels of Tyni’s performance at Glastonbury festival. Following the release of her critically acclaimed debut single Fighter, it is produced by Frank Ocean collaborator TROY NōKA and co-written by Ange Haze.
Both Fighter and Late Spring are among a collection of songs which are the result of Tyni having spent the last few years between LA, London and her hometown of Sheffield, recording with the likes of TROY NōKA, Wayne Wilkins (Beyoncé, Jordin Sparks), MNEK (Zara Larsson, Little Mix), Sophie (Charlie XCX, Madonna) and Britney collaborator Ana Diaz, all of whom have provided the perfect foil for Tyni’s nuanced balance of style and substance.
Tyni grew up in Woodhouse, a small village in Sheffield, with her pharmacist technician mum, gas man dad, and elder sister. School was hard work, “To be blunt, some girls wanted to beat me up.” she says. “Was it the fact I had a unicorn on my bag? I don’t know. I wasn’t quite like everybody else.”. Rather than withdraw into herself or confirm to fit in, Tyni decided to ignore it, continue going about things in her own way and on her own terms and throw herself headfirst into her life-long passion of music.
By the age of 9, Tyni was signed up at Sheffield’s Joy Reynolds theatre school. A music industry showcase followed some years later. It was themed around one of Tyni’s other passions – horror films. Present that day was a manager who’d worked with the likes of Lily Allen and Estelle. She saw something in Tyni and introduced her to Wayne Wilkins. There’s not much Wilkins doesn’t know about the diversity of female pop talents out there, and with Tyni he’d found his muse.
Now here we are in 2017, and Tyni’s unicorn bag is stuffed with irresistible, original but accessible pop songs that establish her as an exciting, innovative new artist.
