Otherwise known as Tahliah Debrett Barnett – FKA Twigs – is an extraordinary singer and dancer, born in Cheltenham and raised in Tewkesbury. At 16, FKA Twigs started making music in youth clubs and a year later she moved to South London to pursue a career as a dancer.
She worked as a backup dancer in music videos by artists such as Kylie Minogue, Plan B, Ed Sheeran, Taio Cruz, Jessie J, and Wretch 32.
With an incredible soprano voice Twigs’ music has been described as genre-bending using a variety of styles including choral, industrial, R&B and electronic.
Twigs produced the latest album Magdalene herself (alongside several co-producers) and it was released in November 2019 by Young Turks and is her first project in four years.
The album is full of stunning pieces such as Cellophane and we are keeping fingers well and truly crossed for a forthcoming tour.
