MANNHEIM, Germany, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Multi-platinum singer and artist Tina Harris will travel during the summer months of 2016 with her "Free to Love" tour through Germany
Millions recognize her face. And with a multi-platinum record in her past, even more know her voice. Yet the world is just beginning to know Tina Harris herself!
In fall of 2015, Archer Records presented the original web series "From Sweetbox to Now", a seven-episode trip through Tina Harris' journey from worldwide fame to relative obscurity to the precipice of releasing FREE TO LOVE, her 2016 debut album.
The former lead singer of global pop sensation "Sweetbox" is stepping out boldly on her own, bringing proven skills, relentless enthusiasm and refreshing humility, all of which adds up to the ultimate Tina Harris irony: a diva's voice, looks and ambition, minus the diva.
FREE TO LOVE, her first U.S.-released album, comes years after her departure from Germany-based "Sweetbox", best known for its smash 1998 single "Everything's Gonna Be Alright." The upbeat song fused Johann Sebastian Bach's Overture No. 3 in D-Major with a contemporary beat, an unforgettable hook and Tina Harris' spirited, flowing rap.
"Sweetbox", however, was more of a brand than a band. And while it brought her a degree of worldwide fame, she says, the project ultimately left her own artistic expression dictated by executives. Years after her formal separation, the typical music-industry entanglements - hastily signed contracts, little-noticed clauses and differing ambitions - left her hamstrung, unable for years to emerge as a solo artist.
That is, up to now.
Tina Harris has teamed up with Memphis-based "Archer Records" and producer/collaborator Kerry Kernan (Darius Rucker, The BarKays, David Porter, Calvin Richardson) to create "Free to Love." She may be at the helm for the first time, but Tina Harris quickly proves she is an artist who knows how to use the genre's charms - its catchy hooks and danceable melodies - to craft songs about heartache, fear, hurt and about new beginnings and the hope of falling in love.
The first few tracks swing the door open and Tina Harris seems ready to take centre-stage with songs like "Quit Playing Games" and "So Addicted" - the R&B/Dance star who once rocked crowds of thousands - but soon enough she really invites you in with songs like "Be the One", "Broken" and the title track, "Free to Love." Ultimately that juxtaposition - vulnerable and honest, playful and sexy - is at the heart of the record.
Really, it's at the heart of Tina Harris, stepping out from behind a moniker or band name, saying: "This is me!" Free to express, free to experience joy, free to trust, free to love.
Tina Harris is happy to win old fans back and also satisfy new fans during her "Free to Love" tour of 2016 through Germany. She is glad for booking inquiries from clubs, festivals, broadcasting stations or other organizers. She is ready for any interview requests in English.
