Hi, I’m Tyra and Carnival is my sophomore EP where I explore the sideshow variety of repertoire that I have been building and writing, mostly over the last two years.
I had been releasing singles and other works of art over the last little while, but I felt the need to put out a more complete body of work, since my fist EP No Angel.
In No Angel, I used sound clips from the 1933 movie I’m No Angel about my namesake, a carnival lion tamer named Tira (Mae West), which is the same pronunciation as my name – Tyra. Carnival, my second EP, in a way is an evolution and continuation of the theme of the first EP (ie. I’m a fairground baby).
