Artist Biography

Prior to the start of her solo career 90s UK pop- dance vocalist Kiani was the singer with Glasgow, Scotland-based techno / house group the Time Frequency (often abbreviated to TTF). That group was enormously successful in Scotland, reaching number 1 in the charts with ‘Real Love’, which also peaked at number 8 in the main UK charts. Their other successful singles included ‘New Emotion’ and ‘The Ultimate High’, both of which also charted in the UK Top 40. She made her debut Top Of The Pops appearance with TTF and also supported Prince at Edinburgh’s Meadowbank Stadium. Later she worked with the Welsh band Waterfront, who toured the USA to strong acclaim and reached number 6 in the Billboard charts with ‘Cry’. She signed a solo contract in 1995 with the management team behind Dina Carroll, MN8 and Eternal, and released her first single, ‘When I Call Your Name’, in August. It reached number 18 in the UK charts in its first week of release. The follow-up single, ‘I Give It All To You’/‘I Imagine’, followed in December. This was a double a-side release, featuring a ballad and a rhythmic techno-house number, with remixes from producers including Tony De Vit and Eddie Fingers. Once again it was a hit.
