Tiggi Hawke: Rising star in the world of electro pop

Tiggi Hawke, the 28-year-old electro-pop sensation, has been making waves in the music industry with her unique blend of sharp-edged electro pop and introspective lyrics. Her journey from a hobbyist to a professional musician has been marked by self-discovery, collaboration, and a deep connection with her audience.

Born with a love for music and singing, Tiggi’s passion took a more serious turn during her school years when she began writing poems and lyrics as a way to cope with challenges. Encouragement from individuals in the music industry led her to explore songwriting, and she quickly fell in love with the process of expressing herself through music. Tiggi’s transition from singing others’ songs to crafting her own brought a sense of musical freedom that she cherishes to this day.

Her songwriting process is a delicate balance between structure and spontaneity. Tiggi often starts with a concept or lyrical hook that serves as a guide for her song’s direction. She finds beats to be incredibly helpful, setting the mood and tone for a track from the very beginning. Embracing collaboration, Tiggi thrives on the diverse perspectives and ideas that come from working with others. This collaborative approach injects layers of depth and richness into her songs, elevating her artistry.

Tiggi’s latest album, “Ascension,” released on 7th July 2023, is a personal journey of growth and transformation. The album mirrors her experiences over the past two years, showcasing her evolution as an individual and an artist. The track order of the album itself reflects a progression from darker tones to a more hopeful, uplifting outro. The lead track, “SADURDAY NIGHT,” encapsulates the essence of choosing happiness, even if just for a night, and pushing aside the weight of sadness.

Influenced by her personal experiences, Tiggi infuses her music with relatable narratives and emotions. Her interests in astronomy and future tech also find their way into her work, shaping her visual identity and enhancing the thematic depth of her creations.
