T.Y.T By @_teesme
Tierra Miller is an upcoming songwriter from Virginia Beach, Virginia. This Virginia State University graduate with a BS in Mass Communications is a natural born entertainer. Tierra has been involved with music since the age of four and in her early years, participated in talent shows as well as in the choir. She was also introduced to various instruments such as the piano, viola, and the guitar. In middle school she participated in the chorus where poetry became her escape and from there she found her calling. Music was always the go to but as for rapping she never thought twice. The summer after she graduated high school one of her friends came to her and told her to listen to a song he was working on. He asked if she could do a verse and she laughed. Once she laid her part and they finished the piece, she fell in love with the movement. You couldn’t get her to leave the studio. In Nov. 2011 Tierra entered the Wale Bait Remix Contest and was one of the top 10 finalists. Still in the studio working, Tierra made another public comeback for Virginia State’s yearly cypher in 2013. Realizing people actually listened and liked her music she continued to write and do various performances. Over the years as a performer, Tierra is the type to keep you guessing and in the end have you in awe. With a list of influences including Missy Elliott, Foxy Brown and even Aaliyah, as a lyricist and a song writer, her delivery is smooth and hard-hitting with a melodic flow. Aiming to bring hip-hop back, people have often compared her to several artists such as Eve, MC Lyte, Queen Latifa and Roxanne Shanté. Even though she is compared to the greatest artists known, she is still striving to give the female MCs a run for the title. Recently she has preformed at Roc the Mic 6 Hampton Roads and has been even more eager to continue her journey with music in hopes of putting together some projects and being heard worldwide.
