Art & Life with Ting Tang Tina

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ting Tang Tina.

Ruby Lewis – Lead singer
Aidan Bumgardner – Drums
Dillion Wilkins – Guitar
Claire Marcho – Bass

Please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
We got asked to play a friend’s birthday party in January of 2017, and we built a short set around that arrangement. After that, we continued to play shows around Fort Worth, built our material to eventually record our first EP in November of 2017, “Love Is Trippy.”

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
We usually take from personal experiences to form our lyrics and mood of each song. Dillon and Ruby are the main songwriters with contribution from Claire and Aidan.

Any advice for aspiring or new artists?
If there’s anything, a new musician should know it’s patience. Big shows won’t be handed to you. You have to work your way up the so-called “social ladder.”Another word of advice is to fully absorb yourself in your local music scene; go to as many local shows and events as possible. And finally, don’t beat yourself up or take it personally if the turnout at a show isn’ what you expected, take small shows as opportunities to try out new things, DON”T BE AFRAID TO EXPERIMENT!

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
We’re on every main streaming platform (i.e., Spotify, Apple Music, Band Camp, etc.)

You can contact us on Facebook and Instagram @tingtangtina for more information on the band and upcoming shows!
