TEHYA by contradash

Today, TEHYA releases her debut track “crowd pleaser”. The 23-year-old singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist hails from LA via Seattle. She arrives with a knockout debut on “crowd pleaser”, produced in collaboration with Rence and Contradash.

With “crowd pleaser”, TEHYA becomes the latest superstar-in-waiting to join the lengthy lineage of alt pop artists at Neon Gold Records, the celebrated independent label that first put out Charli XCX, Tove Lo, MARINA, Christine and The Queens and many more.

TEHYA explains: “i started and finished on it in a day, Rence played a really sick little idea and we immediately locked in and built it all out. it’s about superficiality and how that tends to strain relations by lack of genuine connection. always more concerned with putting on a show for those around you, always caring more for their opinions/ perceptions of you than that of the one closest to you. the duality of it is it’s also pretty much literally about my ex going on tour and all that drama”

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest in the crosshairs of her ancestral cultures; Cherokee, Filipino and Scotch-Irish, Tehya was heavily influenced by music and took after her father, a local legend funk drummer, from a young age. After leaving home at 16, she found her community in a Capitol Hill artist compound frequented by some of the biggest names in the Seattle underground rap scene. It was here she picked up production via osmosis, sitting in on sessions and teaching herself Pro Tools and FL whenever a room was going spare. She is self-taught across the board – playing guitar, keys, drums, and writing 100% of her toplines and lyrics – a self-made DIY popstar unbound by genre and ready for the spotlight.
