Tia McGraff is an internationally renowned and award winning Americana/Country songstress from Port Dover, ON, Canada. With Scottish/Transylvanian roots running through her songwriting and voice, Tia’s talent has been described as “haunting and soul-gripping.”  6 international cd releases, 4 videos on CMT Canada, various film/tv placements, and numerous nominations and awards (including Americana CD of the year first ballot nomination for 2016 Grammy Awards), have earned Tia a respect in the music industry and a global fan base that continues to stretch beyond demographics.  Tia’s latest cd release, Crazy Beautiful, was released in spring 2015, and immediately impressed Americana and Country radio programmers in the USA/Canada/ Europe, resulting in significant chart action. Produced by Colorado native, Tommy Parham, Crazy Beautiful is being described as “Tia’s break- through album.”  Tommy moved to Nashville, TN in 1998, with a staff songwriter deal in hand, and soon became one of music row’s sought after hit melody makers. His catalog credits include cuts with major label artists, including Lee Greenwood (Rocks You Can’t Move), and film placements in movies starring Ashley Judd, etc.
After moving to Music City, USA in 1999, Tia was introduced to Tommy by his music publisher. They began songwriting together, broke their rule of “never date a co-writer,” and on June 4, 2006 the couple were married in Savannah, Georgia. In Tia and Tommy fashion, they celebrated their wedding by performing a concert for their fans!  Their love and passion for each other- their music -their fans, continue to grow, win hearts, and make them one of Americana Music’s favorite sweethearts.
