Listen to “Like Ohh”— HERE.
Tassia comments about the new single, “During a writing trip to LA I met a new guy and we really hit it off. After I went back home to Australia, I just couldn't get him off my mind. “Like Ohh" is a sexy, playful song about craving a person knowing you may never see them again. I had the best time making this with my collaborators Lauren Christy, Jon Levine and Entente.”
Translating the tension of a long-distance relationship into a classy bop, the track seesaws on a simmering beat, jazz-y piano, and warbling organ as she croons, “Think it’s crazy we never kissed, tasting my whole body except my lips.” Her vocals flutter from soulful verses into a show-stopping refrain punctuated by impressive runs.
Currently, Tassia has hunkered down in Sydney in quarantine, but her voice has reached audiences everywhere, nevertheless. She continues putting the finishing touches on her debut EP— coming soon. For now, she’ll make you say, “Ohh”.
Tassia Zappia, Italian born in Melbourne, doesn’t gloss over the little things in her music. She approaches her lyrics with a keen eye for detail only amplified by her show-stopping delivery, outsized vocal flare, and free spirit. Listening to the Australian singer and songwriter can feel like being in the room right next to her during some momentous turning point.
As a kid, Tassia discovered Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, and Frank Sinatra through her parents, developing an appreciation for “super old school classics.” Feeling like an outsider, she turned to poetry and music. By 12-years-old, she began writing songs. She discovered Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill and incorporated all of these inspirations into a raw, unfiltered, and soulful style. In 2019, she took a trip to Los Angeles for a music camp that wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Instead, it “felt like Fyre Fest,” but she ended up with her first break, nevertheless. After performing her original composition “When I Was Four” during a visit from chart-topping songwriter Heidi Rojas [Little Mix, Cheryl Cole], she left the audience in tears. Rojas asked for Tassia’s phone number, and they met for coffee a few days later. The following day Heidi took Tassia to a session with Lauren Christy, formerly of The Matrix [Avril Lavigne, David Bowie, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha, Rihanna], and this led to Tassia signing a development deal with Heidi and Lauren’s production company. Along the way, she inked a deal with Republic and has since released her much buzzed about singles “You Don’t Want Me” and “When I Was Four.”
