Who is Taija New?
Taija New, a.k.a. the Newbian King, is a Rhythmic Pop entertainer who humbly began her musical journey at open mics in her hometown, Springfield, Massachusetts, where she honed her skills for live performance. News of Taija’s performances traveled the old-fashioned way, by word-of-mouth, as her evolution from an unpolished act to an undeniable force developed quickly; eventually gaining the attention of regional show directors.
In 2015, she released her debut EP "Color Me Complex" which included her popular single 'Newbian King'; a song that defies the gender binary and bore her nickname. Her single “Glitter”, an ode to her beloved fans in the LGBTQIA+ community, led to “The Pride Tour” where she was blessed to grace the stage of Pride festivals across the U.S. Since then she has delivered two more projects including the 2017 release of her highly -anticipated sophomore album, “Heart on the Stage”, that was followed up by a two year album-titled tour.
Her live shows have been seen across North America where she has performed on the same stage as major acts such as: Jennifer Hudson, Todrick Hall, K.Michelle, and Tiffany Evans. Fresh off the release of her new single 'Couture', a nod to 90's Hip-Hop as well as the mixtape era, Taija is currently completing her fourth project and gearing up for her third tour.
