TIA McGRAFF and TOMMY PARNHAM, Folk, Uncorked on Main, Thursday, April 2 at 7 pm
April 2, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Folk. A simpler time, a simpler music. Set back and relax to the sounds of two professionals who have shared their music with each other and their audience for years, and who know how to blend those soothing sounds to a room.
Described as having “a voice stolen from angels”, Tia McGraff first stepped into the international spotlight on a CBC TV special with Johnny Cash and June Carter. Johnny was so impressed with Tia, he invited her into June’s dressing room to introduce the two. Johnny Cash wasn’t the only one who recognized a shining star! Soon heavyweights like Randy Bachman (BTO), Dan Hill (Celine Dion), Andrew Gold, Mark Slaughter, and countless others, were inviting Tia to write and record with them.
Every songwriter’s dream is to make it in Nashville, and Tia soon found herself moving there to further her passion and craft. It was in Music City, USA, that this Canadian songstress met Colorado native, Tommy Parham (Lee Greenwood’s “Rocks You Can’t Move”).
Together, they have a passion for song writing “outside the box”. They celebrate numerous film/TV placements, 6 CD releases, 4 CMT videos, 15 years of main stage festivals and headline concert performances. Tia, a singer/songwriter who has crafted a musical career that is respected and celebrated by thousands of fans and industry notables today. Performing on main stage festivals, concert halls, song writing venues, and even house concerts, she captures her audience and holds them spell bound until her last haunting note has faded.
