With the holidays fast approaching, it’s always been a great opportunity to discover fresh new talent to show off to friends and family. I always seem to love this time of year, all of my family together under one roof, and at my family home we always seem to get into a deep long conversation on the topic of music. Man, when I say we go heavy on this subject it is an understatement. My family’s life revolves around music. I’m always on the look out for that break out artist.
We have yet to feature a rapper for the “Women that Rock” series, but guys do I have a special treat for you. This piece is truly dedicated to all my Hip Hop heads. This amazing artist isn’t only a rapper, but also a gifted singer songwriter.
She goes by “Tish Hyman”. This Bronx native began her plight as a battle rapper, that’s right she could flow with best of them.
Then in 2010, Tish moved to Los Angels, Ca. This is also where she forged several artist relationships that would soon land her with the opportunity of a lifetime. You guys may be familiar with some of the many mainstream artists she’s lent a creative pen to. She’s written for the likes of Alicia Keys, Ty Dolla Sign, Diddy and Kelly Rowland just to name a few.
In 2015, she released her first single, entitled “Subway Art”. This track really expresses the deep struggles of many New Yorkers that frequent the New York subway system on a daily basis. On this track her infectious vocals are compared to the great Lauryn Hill.
Celebrating her July 12, 2016 release of her debut EP, entitled, “Dedicated To”, this project is jammed packed with hits. Tish gives us a brief uncovered look into her life and experience as an MC, she’s clearly bringing back true Lyricism to the art of rapping. My favorite track on the album is entitled “All That I can Do”. Tish delivers an astonishing performance on this very heartfelt track.
We have to support these creative artists and their craft. Buy good music go to great concerts. Show your support for truly good music. And those great artists, like Tish Hyman will keep supplying the demand.
