Early life and personal life

Tania Foster was born and raised in South East London, England.

Foster grew up with a family of singers and musicians, her father was in a fairly well known '80s funk band who often rehearsed at home, she regularly fell asleep to the sound of live trumpets and saxophones practising away in the very next room, that is when she decided to focus on her own music career.[2]

She is good friends with fellow Roll Deep featuring artist, Jodie Connor,[3] who gained Roll Deep their first number 1 single.

She studied at the BRIT School.

Career

2009–present: Shining Star and breakthrough

Tania Foster started her big time career after featuring on Roll Deep's fourth single, "Green Light", which entered the UK singles charts at number 1, becoming Foster's first number 1 single and first ever single to chart. It also became Roll Deep's second number one single. The track debuted at number 18 on the Irish top 50 singles chart. The single was released 15 August 2010, battling Flo Rida and David Guetta's "Club Can't Handle Me" and Eminem and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie". "Green Light" got mainly good reception after Digital Spy said the song had a definition of a guilty pleasure, and later giving the song three out of five stars.[4]

Foster has also featured on Tinchy Stryder's third upcoming album, Third Strike. She sang guest vocals on a number of songs within the album. She is also working with hit writer and producer Fraser T Smith on her studio album. She confirmed that her first studio album, due to be released in late 2010, would in fact be titled Shining Star [5]

Tania is set to release her first solo single in late 2010, titled "SupaWoman" the track features an unknown rapper. She is currently in the studio working on her first studio album.[6]

Tania is now a part of the group Roll Deep, and will be a part of the line up for the groups upcoming 2012 album, the lead single "Picture Perfect" being released on 22 January 2012.
