"...that voice hits like a thousand clocks striking midnight – booming, strong, fiercely solemn." – Origivation Magazine

"...bright and truly captivating in live performance..." – Montgomery News

Tania Alexandra woke up one morning to see a piano taking up most of her bedroom. She was nine, and that piano became her diary.

Immersed in the performing arts and her father’s eclectic tastes, she counts The Muppets, Igor Stravinsky, John Coltrane, Tom Waits, Laurie Anderson and Joni Mitchell among her earliest influences. Born and raised amid the beauty of the Colorado mountains, she honed her songwriting in secret while studying music education at Ithaca College, only revealing herself after moving to Philadelphia, PA.

After recording her debut album Chrysalis in 1999, Tania infused herself into the arts community as composer, vocalist, pianist, lyricist, and music and movement teacher. Her new release Emergence, released in April 2003, has received much critical acclaim.
