With her striking image and sultry voice, British up-and-comer FKA Twigs has the trip hop game on lock. Combining off-kilter R&B rhythms, undulating synth textures, and heavily processed vocals, the young singer boasts a truly original sound, and she backs up her expertly produced recordings with equally masterful performances. She may be a relative newcomer, but she's no amateur -- from her elegantly understated movements to the sensual vulnerability of her vocals on tracks like "Feed Me" and "How's That", FKA twigs delivers one unforgettable performance after another on her must-see tours.
Born in small-town Britain, FKA Twigs, a.k.a. Tahliah Barnett, moved to London at age 17 with the hopes of becoming a dancer. After landing several gigs dancing in music videos, she self-released her debut EP in late 2012, quickly receiving praise from critics for her otherworldly vocals and the EP's slick production. She signed with British indie label Young Turks for the release of 2013's EP 2, another critical success that was accompanied by a series of visually stunning videos made in collaboration with director Jesse Kanda. With her debut album hitting shelves in 2014, FKA Twigs has ticket buyers eagerly awaiting the opportunity to catch her live.
