Tatiana DeMaria, is a British musician, songwriter, singer and record producer. Best known publicly as the founder and lead vocalist/guitarist for London-based rock band, TAT, Tatiana also writes and produces for a number of other artists and projects, including music for commercials, shows, and movies; including the latest 7UP theme song, music for Pepsi and original movie titles for the Universal production of Blue Crush 2.
By age 17 Tatiana had written the band's debut album, Soho Lights, which led to two UK charting singles, although the album was only released several years later in October 2008. Soho Lights was released in the US through Red Wagon Records and RED, to impressive independent sales ending the band's five year touring streak in 2012. Today it is available internationally on iTunes.
Born in London, Demaria moved to Paris with her family when she was very young. It was here she spent a great deal of her childhood. Whilst at school, she developed a love of punk rock and was introduced to such bands as NOFX, Rancid, The Clash and Green Day by some of the older children on the school bus. She returned to London as a teenager and started playing guitar and songwriting when she was 16. She initially had hopes of being an astro-physicist but realised her love for rock music was greater than that of physics.
After playing in several high school bands, DeMaria formed TAT (originally named The Camden Whigs) in 2003 with friend Tim Vanderkuil. After several member changes, she was joined in 2005 by Nick Kent and Jake Reed who solidified the bands present lineup. Since TAT's inception, the band have toured extensively in Europe and North America. November 2008 saw the release of their debut album, Soho Lights.
