Singer Songwriter TaniA Kyllikki has a stardust quality that leaves you in awe.
The British beauty, with her baby face, blue-green eyes, long curling locks, and kind, gentle spirit, has the it factor. However, when you dig deeper, you find she has had a very difficult journey and an even more difficult story than most people of her young age could ever imagine, yet she has kept her honour and ploughed forward, and you will hear her roar like the brave lioness she truly is.
Having the good fortune to stumble onto the work of a singer-songwriter such as TaniA Kyllikki is like unearthing a treasure chest full of glittering riches. Her stardust quality leaves you in awe. In any case, it’s extremely unusual in this era of music. TaniA has a superwoman aura about her and unmatched feminine power. She isn’t afraid to show her emotions in her art, inspiring others through her raw, organic storytelling approach. When you listen to her, you can’t help but want to hear more. Her vocal range of five octaves is astounding, and the multiple layers she uses to transport her audience into a trance help us forget our troubles and become lost in her music.
In H.W.C., produced by Rynellton, aka Garry D. Hairston, TaniA tells the story of a young woman who has been emotionally scarred by her treatment at the hands of an abusive partner in her past. Although she has now met a true love who loves her back unconditionally, the scars from her past make it so that she must once again guard her heart by erecting barriers. As she sings, you can practically feel the emotion in her voice. The story told in this song is compelling enough that you will feel as if you were there, even if it isn’t one that you can personally relate to. A high whistle note by TaniA at the climax of the song has drawn comparisons to Minnie Riperton. Even while it sounds stunningly heavenly and is sure to steal the stage, others may suspect that she is only trying to demonstrate her wide vocal range. However, the nuanced creativity at play may be lost on the uninitiated. All of TaniA’s anguish is expressed in the F6 note, as if she were pleading with the listener to “handle with care” her heart. To even think of such a creative expression demonstrates her greatness as a musician. To create the bird noises in Loving You, the late Minnie Riperton used her own vocals to record them. Much the same with this “handle with care” whistle note by TaniA, it is placed with the same level of maturity and professionalism.
