Tiera Beverly is an R&B soul singer from the Bay Area. Now based in Los Angeles, the young songstress has been melting listeners with her distinct blend of old school R&B and fresh, modern elements. Born into a family of musicians, she credits her upbringing for her array of musical influences. With a father and grandfather (the famed Frankie Beverly) both musicians and accomplished artists, Beverly was propelled into the industry and has not looked back.
Leading single ‘Can’t Talk’ was produced by Jason Mater (Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Eminem) and Brandon Rogers (Alec Benjamin, Troye Sivan, Bea Miller) as well as mastered by Evren Goknar at Capitol Studios. The highly anticipated release oozes with sultry vocals, dramatic drums and soaring smokey harmonies, creating a throwback feel to Beverly’s love of 90’s girl groups. The track is brought to life with live musicians and twinkling keys, emitting a mesmerizing ambiance and showcasing her love for artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Aaliyah.
Thematically ‘Can’t Talk’ narrates the journey of youth and realizing that to reach your goals you need to put yourself first. Beverly reveals, “This song was inspired by what I view as the current state that we live in, as far as technology. I do like things about social media, but I do feel like we are in a world so fueled by the need for constant reassurance and instant gratification. I definitely think that a lot of people have such a short attention span and it can cause for insecurity in relationships”.
Engraving her own unique sound into the Los Angeles music scene, Beverly hopes that her music can inspire someone to come to the realization that it’s unselfish to be selfish every once in awhile. Using her past relationships as inspiration, she was able to take her experiences and mold them into a song, as a form of self-medication and healing. She confides, “I guess it kind of empowered me in a way. I hope that people in similar situations can find some kind of empowerment in my song as well”.
Tiera Beverly continues to bewitch listeners with her hypnotic melodies and seductive vocal tones, with ‘Can’t Talk’ is out now.
