This woman is incredibly talented: a classically-trained pianist, producer, songwriter, and composer. Tiye was formerly signed to Rawkus Records, during which time she teamed up with DJ Spinna, Shabaam Sahdeeq, and Mr. Complex in the group Polyrhythmaddicts to release the album Break Glass in 2007.
