GREEN ROOM CHATTER with TIARRA GIRLS
2016-2017 Winner of Best U-18
Tiarra Girls have swept the Best Under-18 category for the last two years at the Austin Music Awards. Be sure to check out just what this trio of sisters has to say about their experience at the AMAs and gigging in the Live Music Capital of the World!
What’s the best part of winning an AMA?
The best part is getting to meet such amazing musicians and soaking in all the advice given by so many in the industry. Knowing that we have the support from our fans lifts our spirits so high. Being in a room full of Austin’s favorite musicians is so magical and surreal.
Funny backstage moment?
We played a show for Margaret Moser’s memorial at Antone’s and while we were backstage after our set, someone told us that Charlie Sexton was asking why we had large X’s on the back of our hands.
What do you wish for the Austin music scene?
We hope that in the future, Austin musicians continue to advocate for one another no matter the genre or age and that the creative flow between the community stays alive.
Who are your local musical influences?
Nina Diaz and Gina Chavez, they have such distinct voices and styles.
At the moment, what’s your favorite song by another artist?
“January 9th” by Nina Diaz.
