Over the last decade or more we’ve seen a lot of cross-genre country stars rising through the ranks as the charts lean towards a more pop country sound. However, Tiera’s style is unique, as she blends her R&B influences with her country roots.
Her self-titled EP is up-beat and care-free for the most part as she draws on her relationship with her boyfriend (now husband) for lyrical inspiration. There is a shimmer to her vocals as she opens with ‘Found It In You’ with it’s catchy, rhythmic melodies, it’s faint banjo buried in the slick production. ‘Miles’ is a stand out track, it features Breland, the pair’s musical styles are very similar and their voices go well together. ‘Not Your Girl’ is an empowering song, it’s lyrics reminding the listener to be themselves. It’s an EP that’s bound to put a smile on your face. Cameron Bedell has helped Tiera find her niche with the production too, her style unique and refreshing in the country music landscape.
With a voice like hers and a passion and knowledge (as displayed on her Apple music show) she has the scope to explore with her sound but I think what she’s doing right now is just perfect.
