Join us for an insightful conversation with Tana, a genre-bending artist based in London, whose career is influenced by the rich and diverse perspectives of gay culture. As a Black female LGBTQI+ artist with Italian and Nigerian roots, Tana's journey in the UK music scene is unapologetic, revolutionary, and deeply committed to diversity.

Having signed her track 'Savage' to Sony US & Babygrande records and showcased her talent on the A3C compilation album, Tana is a remarkable artist and songwriter with a unique gift for lyrics and melody. Her artistic prowess extends beyond borders, as evidenced by her work for Chinese artist 'Jike Junyi.'

She has also graced stages at NXNE Festival, Tallin Music Week, and London Pride, solidifying her presence as a force to be reckoned with.

This episode explores the intersectionality of Tana's identity—being Black, female, and LGBTQI+—and its profound effect on her career path in the UK music industry. Tana's tracks have garnered attention from notable platforms such as 'Gay Times,' and her journey has been featured on BBC Introducing, Reprezent Radio, Soho Radio, Pulse 88, Gaydio, and Trace Urban. Numerous publications, including Earmilk and AnR Factory, have also recognized her artistry.

Tune in to hear Tana's story of resilience, creativity, and advocacy as she navigates the music landscape, placing diversity at the heart of her art. This episode promises a vibrant discussion on the challenges and triumphs of being a Black female LGBTQI+ artist in the UK and the transformative power of Tana's unapologetic and revolutionary approach to her craft
