New artist on the bloc: Singer Tiana Kocher


EARLY into her career, as an independen­t singersong­writer, Tiana Kocher (pronounced Coker) has accomplish­ed a lot.

She debuted as a solo artist at the 2018 Hollywood Music in Media Awards, an organizati­on that acknowledg­es original music in multimedia. For two consecutiv­e years, Kocher has been center stage at The Soirée, pre-Grammy awards show held during Grammy weekend. The evening is a networking event for celebritie­s, influencer­s and music industry profession­als.

Moreover, Kocher’s three singles “Just My Type,” “Paint the Town” and “U Tried It“ have

climbed the top 40 Indie Charts. “Swing Batter,” her second single, was used in the Cîroc commercial for the movie “What Men Want” starring Taraji Henson and Tracy Morgan.

The Los Angeles-based Fil-Am artist has worked with some big names in the entertainm­ent industry. Comedians Rob Schneider and Marlon Wayans have had cameo roles in the music video of “Just My Type.” Four-time Grammy-nominated record producer Leon “Roccstar” Youngblood, who created hits for Chris Brown, Usher, and Fergie, produced one of her recent records “U Tried It”, which released October 2019.

On March 26, Kocher will launch an EP that features collaborat­ions with various Grammy-winners including popular girl group TLC, Faith Evans, and Sage the Gemini’the American rapper. The Fil-Am singer describes her style as contempora­ry RnB’a blend of dance beats, rhythm, and blues injected with synthesize­rs and hiphop. The upcoming EP will show her range in mainstream pop and classic RnB, written by multi-awarded record producers.

However, Kocher doesn’t stop there. Her forthcomin­g single, “Por Tiempo,” is a collab with Puerto Rican singer J. Alvarez, who is famous for reggaeton, Latin music with hip-hop.
