She has been on magazine covers, TV shows and was a member of the all-female band of superstar Beyoncé Knowles, with whom she performed for President Obama at the White House. But more than anything, Tia Fuller is a gifted and passionate jazz saxophonist, band leader and arranger. After starting out in the last decade, she has quickly grown from a promising talent into an established name. She has released three albums with her own quartet, the last of which, Decisive Steps (2010), was on the charts of a striking number of American jazz magazines. Fuller is a child of musical parents and jazz is in her blood. She herself is a dedicated jazz teacher and combines technique with adventure. With her sax, she gives standards a fresh interpretation, and has an abundance of her own compositions as well. Fuller is experienced in playing for both full stadiums and small clubs. A perfect North Sea Jazz Festival artist.
