"Breaking Through the Iron Curtain with American Song"
Born in Soviet Union and raised in Moscow, Tinatin is an international award-winning songwriter and artist of infinite pedigree. She makes her U.S. solo debut at the Metropolitan Room to tell her fascinating story of a girl's journey through the Iron Curtain when the Great American Songbook was a forbidden fruit...to all but one Soviet child with an all-American dream.
Tinatin's story so far...
Born in the Soviet Union and raised in Moscow, Russia, songwriter and artist Tinatin is on her way to reaching the top heights of two careers: as a writer and a musician. She is the model of a sophisticated professional - the European and American media from Billboard right across are on her case.
Heralded by Billboard Magazine as one of the "fresh faces to keep an eye out for in 2008," she became a finalist in the worldwide John Lennon Song Contest and her song “Wild” was hailed as a 2007 year-end Billboard Top 10 Critics’ Pick. Tinatin's song "Is It True?" that came second at this year’s 2009 Eurovision Song Contest was reviewed by the Financial Times and became the "#1 Eurovision Song of the Decade."
She has written in Russian for the leading Russian Newspaper in America, in English for the United Nations (where she is the United Nations Radio Correspondent) and in Georgia she has both written and been written about - including a story about her in Cosmopolitan – for which Cambridge Jones, UK’s top photographer took the portraits.
Signed worldwide to Kobalt Music Publishing, she is now adding final touches to her debut album with a number of the industry's top producers and scribes on both sides of the Atlantic.
Her first single, "We the Peoples," based on the United Nations charter, a bureaucratic post-war document explaining the purpose of the UN, was recently reviewed by Billboard senior correspondent Chuck Taylor, who called it "a penultimate, contemporary anthem honoring the mission of the United Nations, perhaps more relevant than ever, given the flux of worldwide politics a resonant affirmation that politics actually have potential to unite."
Apart from her weekly UN radio show on Progressive Radio Network, “United Nations Uncovered”, Tinatin’s self-produced brand new show on Break Thru Radio “Russkiy in the Mix” features some of the hottest post-USSR hits from the other side of the Iron Curtain.
Described by Christopher Neil the creative force behind Celine Dion, Mike & the Mechanics and Sheena Easton as an artist with an "outstanding voice for people who want to make great music," Tinatin stands as a young, charismatic artist with the talent and moxie to forge one of the choice debut albums of the year.
Tinatin is currently writing a Soviet-themed memoir based on her life that inspired this very show produced and directed by Billy Jay Stein at the Metropolitan Room, and is writing songs for a wide spectrum of artists and TV specials. She is also working on a one-woman Broadway show with Timothy Graphenreed, which will open for previews in New York City in 2010.
