Tia Gostelow titled her new album “Chrysalis” which is a perfect way to describe the transformation of the young lady you see before you today. 2019 was her first year living away from family and friends and she turned that longing into the songs that appear on “Chrysalis”
Tia’s transformation from an aspiring teenage musician from Mackay to one of Australia's most exciting artists has come to fruition. Bursting onto the scene in 2018 with her debut album “Thick Skin”, Tia now returns with an album that delivers coming-of-age experiences through lush pop landscapes and danceable 80's influences with the help of Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy, Alex Lahey) who produced the record.
“Chrysalis” was released in October 2020 and the world took notice. It was a feature album on Triple J, Tonedeaf and Au review and scored glowing praise globally from the likes of Spin, American Songwriter and Line Of Best Fit to name a few.
At just 22, Tia has released two albums with the song “Strangers” just shy of 16 million streams and certified PLATINUM, 2 Triple J feature albums and the Queensland Music Award for album of the year for “Thick Skin”.
Her live achievements already include a UK tour, SOLD OUT Australian headline shows, performances at Falls and Groovin In The Moo festivals and sharing the stage with the likes of Bernard Fanning, Boy & Bear, Ball Park Music, Frightened Rabbit, Lewis Capaldi and Gomez.
