Yo, world! Get ready to be taken by Storm. By Tallia Storm, that is.
Tallia Storm, a 15-year-old songstress from Glasgow, Scotland, has signed a long-term recording agreement with Virgin Records.
Upon signing her agreement in the iconic Capitol Records tower, Tallia Storm exclaimed, "I am over the moon to have signed with Virgin!"
Tallia Storm began singing in her native Scotland at age 11, having been influenced by her father Sascha Hartmann, a musician with deep roots in jazz and soul.
Tallia was propelled to international recognition after a chance encounter with Sir Elton John's husband David Furnish while on holiday with her family in 2011. Furnish gave her demo CD to Sir Elton and the music legend phoned the 13-year-old Glaswegian 24 hours later to invite her to open his sold-out concert date at Scotland's Falkirk Football Stadium. Sir Elton said of young Tallia, "I was very impressed with the maturity of her voice - I think she has a great singing future ahead."
If Elton John likes her, we will, too.
Get an earful of Tallia:
Are you ready to be taken by Storm?
