Tanita Tikaram

Tanita Tikaram made a splash on both sides of the Atlantic at a mere 19 years of age with her dramatic, singer/songwriter-influenced lyrics. The offspring of Malaysian and Fijian parents, Tikaram moved to England at age 12 and began writing songs as a teenager. She played her first gig at 17 in London after a favorable response to her demo tape from a club she had sent it to. After appearing on television, Tikaram was signed to Warner and released Ancient Heart, co-produced by Rod Argent and Peter Van Hooke, in 1988. Both "Twist in My Sobriety" and "Good Tradition" were hits in Europe, and Tikaram toured the world. With the follow-up album, 1990's The Sweet Keeper, Tikaram began to settle into the status of a cult act, a situation not changed by the less consistent albums Everybody's Angel (1991) and Eleven Kinds of Loneliness (1992). Still, Tikaram began to bounce back in 1995 with the album Lovers in the City; she moved to Polygram for 1998's The Cappuccino Songs. Seven years passed before she returned with Sentimental with special guest Nick Lowe appearing on two tracks. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Twist in my sobriety is a classic for me
I was watching VH1 in 1988 when Good Tradition came on. Been hooked ever since! What a voice, what a talent!
Those she is compare to her on here is an insult, none of these woman even come close. They could only hope and try to aspire to this great talent.
The fact that Tanita never became main stream commercial garbage meant that she has held true to what we real music lovers know her as a sublime genius.
How come I never heard of this marvellous talent before Pandora?
I discovered her being In the late 80s, as a child, Why you being in a comedy Cinemania, where I was able to pick up foreign radio stations playing twisting my sobriety. From that moment on, I was hypnotized by her voice and the mood of for her tracks.
spellbinding soul. i luv her.

I first heard Tanita in Los Angeles County while driving home on a Saturday morning. I listened to 95.5 KLOS then and the DJ announced this new single as a sort of check it out & let us know what you thinkg kind of thing. From that moment on I couldn't get enough of this talented and poignant artist. She is awesome and very worth listening to and waiting for!!
in total ageement with betitio58 and Tony Daniel
THIS WOMAN IS THE EPITOMY OF WHAT A GREAT ARTIST IS AND ALL OTHER ARTIST STRIVE A LIFE TIME TO BECOME!

Is Tanita still touring/perf o r m i n g at all? She's wonderful. LOVE her smoky voice and her songwriting is impeccable.
still love her after 20 years!! "twist in my sobriety" is one of the best tracks....es p e c i a l l y after a few ;-
I think her raspy burnished voice compares well to tracy chapman and her early releases including the gospel inflected everybody's angel show a depth that withstands scrutiny and grow on you over the years.Her latter music is more accessible and less opaque but kicks with earnest emotion and irony.

She sounds like Annie Lennox.

One of the most under-apprec i a t e d singer/songw r i t e r s of the last 20 years.
