Interview with R&B Singer Tanya T6

Tanya "T6" Dormevil posted a video of one of her musical performances on YouTube, which received a flood of positive reviews. As a result, she continued to upload videos of herself singing covers of R&B songs. Since the first YouTube upload four years ago, Tanya T6 has been discovered by multi-platinum producer Dame Grease and she's even worked with 3 6 Mafia, N.O.R.E., KURUPT, Mims, Jae Millz, French Montana, Max B, Mike Shore and Royce Da 59.

We caught up with the YouTube sensation as she discussed her first time onstage, her current projects and artists she looks up to.

R&B singer Tanya T6

 1. How long have you been performing? Do you play any instruments?
I have been performing since I was 15. I started out playing the guitar with my dad and I am getting back into it, and I play the keyboard.

2. Who are some of your influences?
My influences are Roberta Flack, Ella Fitzgerald, Deniece Williams and Bone Thugs & Harmony.

3. Are there any artists you look up to?
Yes, I look up to Beyonce, Aaliyah, Mary J. Blige, & Whitney Houston. Those are some of my favorite artists.

4. How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard it before?
My sound is versatile. Sometimes I may have kind of a fast “rapping” flow, a melodic flow, or sometimes I bring out this soulful sound. I used what I learned and heard from my influences and made it my own style. When it comes to me as an artist, you don’t really know what to expect because when it comes to music, I like to try different things and I do different types of records.


5. Can you describe your first time onstage?
My first ever performance was at a talent showcase. As they welcomed me to the stage, I was so nervous my mouth became dry and I thought I would forget my lyrics. First few seconds were scary, but as minutes passed I began to ease up because the audience was welcoming and cheered me on. I’ve learned that especially at showcases, some audiences are tough and some are not, and now I am used to that. Either way, I give my performance 110%.

6. How has YouTube changed your life?
Youtube has helped me gain so many supporters and fans as well as labels and music industry reps who look forward to my videos and releases. That’s a great feeling and I am so thankful!


7. Are you working on any projects at the moment?
I just released my debut EP “Pieces” which is available on iTunes!

8. What was it like working with the following artists: 3 6 Mafia, N.O.R.E., KURUPT, Mims, Jae Millz, French Montana, Max B, Mike Shore and Royce Da 59?
It was great working with all these talented artists because for anyone to even get on a record with you, they must believe in you and that they did.

9. What advice did they give you?
If I am in the booth and I am recording a hook for one of them, sometimes they would tell me sound like this or do it like that because they are looking for a particular sound. Its helps to bring me out of the “comfort” level and helps me expand my versatility.

10. Where can we catch you next? Any upcoming shows? 
My management team is working on a National tour for 2011 which I am very excited about!

11. What's the best piece of advice someone ever gave you?
Never, ever give up….and I wont.


12. Where can people listen to your music online?
You can find my music on iTunes and on your favorite online digital music store and my website www.thebestoftanya.com


13. Anything else you'd like to add?
Thank you for taking the time to interview me! Special shouts to my team!

"Pieces" Now Available on iTunes!

CAM4 To Sponsor The Ms. EXXXOTICA 2017 Competition

EXXXOTICA, the nation’s largest event dedicated to love and sex, just announced that webcam portal CAM4 has signed on as a show sponsor for 2017. CAM4 will be sponsoring and presenting one of the expo’s most popular events, as well as one of its newest initiatives for EXXXOTICA Chicago in June and EXXXOTICA New Jersey in November.
Developed as a community with a focus on social networking, CAM4 is much more than a traditional webcam site, and they are now the presenting sponsor of SW!TCH, EXXXOTICA’s LGBT showcase. SW!TCH made its debut at EXXXOTICA New Jersey in 2016 as the show continued its efforts to be completely inclusive. SW!TCH was created as a means for LGBT vendors, talent, and performers to become part of the EXXXOTICA family. SW!TCH will continue to grow in 2017, and with CAM4 as the presenting sponsor, their booth will be the anchor of the showcase that will feature seminars, events, vendors, talent, and broadcasters catering to LGBT attendees.

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."

SUMMER FABRIC "INGREDIENTS"

DENIM
COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…

Diddy's Grammy after-party at the Playboy Mansion was a star-studded affair on Sunday as Chris Brown, Too Short, Busta Rhymes, Paris Hilton, Jenny McCarthy, Wilmer Valderrama and Sebastian Bach, among others were in attendance. Party-goers who paid anywhere between $1,500 and $50,000 were able to enjoy a live fashion show, live music, DJ, open bar, buffet and rub elbows with Playboy Playmates. Hugh Hefner was even awarded, "Humanitarian of the Year" for his commitment to helping charities and those in need.

The party created a buzz before it even began with VIP "Fame at the Mansion" Monster Cabana tickets selling for $50,000, as reported by TMZ. A portion of the proceeds from the event went towards the Angelwish Foundation.
