UK Artist of the Week:
Tia Gostelow

Since releasing her debut album Thick Skin last year, Australian artist Tia Gostelow has gone from strength to strength. Now, gearing up for her first European tour, we thought it about time she got some AOTW recognition.

Despite her young age, this songstress has been honing her craft for quite some time already and boy, does it show. Thick Skin is a beautifully crafted debut filled with soft, sweet melodies and undeniably catchy choruses throughout.

Tia’s silky smooth vocals are like velvet and so, perhaps appropriately, she even has a track on the album called “Blue Velvet,” which is beautiful by the way. Her most recent release is a piano version of said single. Reminding us of the likes of Gabrielle Aplin or Nina Nesbitt, Tia’s ability to create real storytelling charm with simple musicality and poignancy alone is just stunning.

As mentioned, Tia will be embarking on her first ever European tour this month, which will include a performance at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival and London’s The Victoria amongst other UK and European cities. So if you’re in the vicinity, be sure to catch her while you can. We’re sure big things are come for this young Aussie. Catch Tia Gostelow at the following dates:

9th May – Rough Trade – Bristol
10th May – The Great Escape – Brighton
11th May – The Flapper – Birmingham
13th May – YES – Manchester
14th May – Broadcast – Glasgow
15th May – Church – Dundee
16th May – The Lending Room – Leeds
17th May – The Victoria – London

Thick Skin is in stores now via Antifragile.
