We spoke to British singer-songwriter Tawiah ahead of her performance at Lima Limo Presents on Wednesday 16th May.

With the release of last year’s Recreate, British singer-songwriter Tawiah stepped back into our consciousness to bring us her unique take on soul music. This year, Tawiah has dropped a deluxe edition of the EP and it includes three additional songs — “Knock Down Ginger,”  “No Way” and “Dirty Water”.

We spoke to the singer to find out what does (and doesn’t) make her tick…
