In Greek Mythology, the Titans were members of the second order of divine deities. During the Golden Age, they were known for their immense strength and were responsible for building the very first Greek Temple. With the word Titan meaning “one of great strength,” their name was definitely appropriate; as is the name of one of Washington DC’s newest vocal talents: Titania “Tiny” Adams.
But don’t confuse her nickname with her first name. Titania is not so “tiny” in regards to her sound, personality and legendary future.
Born in Kankakee, Illinois, about an hour south of Chicago, Tiny grew up with a love of music and discovered her voice after hearing Mariah Carey’s 1990 hit, “Vision of Love.” Combining her love of music with her long time fascination with living on the east coast, in 1998, Tiny packed up her Ford Probe and took the 11 hour drive alone from Illinois to Washington D.C.
After moving to the DMV Area, Tiny became an online radio host and landed many acting opportunities including roles in television commercials and music videos for local companies and artists. A few of the highlights of her career was working with Grammy Award winning producer Vudu Spellz and sharing the stage with “The God-Father of Go-Go” himself, legendary Chuck Brown.
As her highly anticipated debut album is in the works, Tiny continues to perform weekly at numerous venues in DC as vocalist for Da’AfterMath Band. Her new single “Fire Charmer” is a breath of fresh air for R&B, and like a true Titan, Titania is determined to leave a legacy that matches her name.
