Tissa Rahim

Tissa Rahim is an RnB songstress with a Middle Eastern flare. Tissa weaves together her effortless talent for the R&B and soul genres with a multi-generational affinity for Persian music as she debuts a rousing solo project after years sharing the stage with the band The Bleeding Horse Express.

Tissa is an established west-coast musician with a 40-city North American tour under her belt, and she has worked with producers like 100 Monkeys’ Jack Rathbone (of Twilight Fame). She was one of 24 Magazine’s “Top 24 under 24,” and has performed at House of Blues in New Orleans, the Gramercy Theatre in New York, and the quintessential local jazz and soul club Guilt and Co. In 2017, Tissa released a 5-song EP, “Rosewater”, and also appears on Gabe.Sx’ 2018 album, “Vancouver Sessions”, as a performer, songwriter, and producer. With a voice that has the freedom of Florence Welch and the depth of Lauryn Hill, her upcoming singles and EP are sure to capture the attention of the Pacific Northwest yet again.

Tissa Rahim is based in the unceded ancestral territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations.
