On Tuesday April 5th Temple Nightclub Presents
Tinashe Concert Afterparty
Tinashe does everything on her own terms. The stunning 21-year-old singer, songwriter, and performer arrives with a distinct and dynamic vision of R&B punctuated by hip-hop attitude, pop flavor, rock swagger, and electronica spark. It all comes to life vividly on Aquarius, her forthcoming full-length debut on RCA Records.
That alchemical blend of genres can actually be traced back to her childhood in Los Angeles. Music surrounded the budding star at home as her father's Shona heritage filtered into daily life, building an atmosphere conducive to creativity and art.
"My dad's family is from Zimbabwe, and it's a very musical culture," affirms Tinashe. "From my earliest memories, music was all around me. It was part of my DNA, and I just loved everything about it. Doing music became my biggest goal as soon as I could sing!"
Getting in front of the camera for the first time, she started modeling with the encouragement of her family. Soon, that transformed into acting and she went on to star in her first film, 2000's Cora Unashamed, followed by a role in The Polar Express with Tom Hanks and a recurring spot on Two And A Half Men. However, her hunger to make music superseded everything, and she joined an all-female pop group The Stunners in 2007, placing acting on the backburner for the moment. The Stunners went on to sign a major label deal and open up Justin Bieber's My World tour before parting ways in 2011. That's when Tinashe's own dream came into focus clearly.
"I decided to pursue my solo career with everything I could," she recalls. "I learned how to record and tour while I was in The Stunners, but it was time for me to say something personal. I always want to create art that's true to who I am as both a person and an artist. So, at that point, I bought my own studio equipment and a camera in order to capture that. I wrote and recorded music and began releasing songs and videos online."
Her first mixtape, In Case We Die, dropped in 2012, and it immediately piqued interest across pop culture. She burst out of the gate with a passionate, powerful, and provocative style that seduced everyone in its path. Critical acclaim abounded, and she unleashed her second release Reverie. In the midst of everything, RCA signed her that same year.
