Tanya Goltz, a small-town Australian girl with a wanderlust-filled heart, invites listeners into her world through the raw and unfiltered lens of her upcoming EP, “Pieces of Me.” Leaving her hometown at the tender age of 15, Goltz has amassed a wealth of experiences—from the exhilaration of wanderlust to the agony of heartbreak and the highs and lows of working as a social worker. In “Pieces of Me,” she fearlessly tackles the themes of love, loss, and empowerment. Recorded at Red Engine Recording with acclaimed producers Steve James and Andrew Cochrane, known for their work with artists like The Screaming Jetts and The Veronicas, the EP is a sonic exploration of Goltz’s life journey. Happy Mag hails her as “a force to be reckoned with,” and AAA Backstage predicts her name will soon be on the lips of industry leaders.
The title track, “Pieces of Me,” delves into the complex emotions of being ghosted after a meaningful relationship. A rock-based ballad, it features melodic guitar work and Goltz’s rich vocals against an opulent soundscape, marrying contemporary flair with nostalgic vintage vibes. Goltz’s debut EP is not just a collection of songs; it’s a reflection of her lived experiences. With three self-penned tracks and two contributions from Nashville songwriters, Goltz ensures her unique voice stands out while weaving a tapestry of stories. Influenced by artists like Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, and Alanis Morissette, “Pieces of Me” masterfully blends rock, alternative country, folk, and blues, showcasing Goltz’s commanding vocal presence.
