NAME

Tia Gostelow

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Musician and I am a singer/songwriter and performer!

FAVOURITE BAND?

Love love love The Jungle Giants and Methyl Ethel

FAVOURITE SONG?

At the moment probably My Boy by Billie Eilish, banger

FAVOURITE FEMALE ARTIST AND WHY?

Billie Eilish because every time I listen to her she gives me goosebumps, one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard and such a clever and honest songwriter for someone her age!

IS THIS WHAT YOU ALWAYS DREAMED OF?

For sure, ever since I could talk I think I wanted to be a singer and it's surreal that I'm already living out my dream at 18 years old!

WHAT MAKES A WOMAN ELECTRIC?

Honestly just embrace who you are and try and be the best version of yourself and you'll easily be an electric woman, be determined and passionate!

 

WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO GIVE TO UP? HOW DO YOU BOUNCE BACK?

Living in a small town has its disadvantages I guess and for the past couple of years, especially in high school I figured out what tall poppy syndrome was and for me I found it really difficult to keep doing music when I felt my friends didn't really care about what I was doing or wouldn't say yeah that's so cool, so proud of you, which is all I really wanted to hear! I have a beautiful family though that reminded me that what I am doing is cool and that I should be grateful for all the opportunities that I had been given and that kept me motivated to keep going and work even harder!

 

WHAT WOMEN DO YOU LOOK UP TO? 

My mum for sure, she's the most determined, passionate and loving woman I've ever come across. Sounds bias but anyone that has the pleasure of working with her or being her friend is a lucky human, I've never met a woman with so much drive to make sure her goals and dreams become a reality!

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A KID? HAS ANYTHING CHANGED?

I've been told I was a very very loud, talkative, confident kid and I don't think much has changed! I guess I've just taken my love for singing and turned it into a career!
