Tina Cousins

Tina Cousins is from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, born April 20, 1971. She started off her career as a model, but is now known as a diva and great electric pop singer. She has had many UK top 20 hits both as a solo artist and with other artists and she is very popular in Australia, where she spends a lot of time.

She appeared on German DJ/producer Sash!’s single “Mysterious Times” in 1998, which allowed her to break into the music industry.

This was followed with the hit “Killin’ Time”, but afterwards, her successes waned, so Tina turned her efforts to Australia where the song, “Forever” achieved Gold sales. “Pray” was an even bigger success in Australia, hitting the top 10, becoming her second Gold single sitting in the ARIA charts for more than 4 months, and becoming the eighth most played song on Australian radio for 1999.

She then collaborated again with Sash on the hit single, ‘Just around The Hill’ in 2000

Tina did not release anything again until 2005, due to record company issues, when she came back with a new single “Wonderful Life”, which was released first in Australia. The release won back her popularity as it hit the Australian charts, reaching 15

Tina spends most of her time between the UK, Spain and the Australia, performing regularly. She has a tireless track record of performing live at nightclubs throughout the world and puts on a fantastic show.

“I always sing live at gigs because I don’t think that you should be up there on stage unless you really can do it properly,” she says earnestly. “People pay good money to come and watch me perform and I’d feel like a real rip-off merchant if I mimed to a track because I think they really deserve more than to have me turn up, pretend to sing and then chip off afterwards like some acts do. I hate seeing big name chart acts miming – it just makes them look bad.”

Fortunately, when she’s not rushing from club gig to club gig, or to and from the studio or promoting her music, Tina has somewhere quiet to get away from it all.

“I live in a beautiful colonial-styled house overlooking the sea in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, where I grew up and it’s lovely to have somewhere so calm and relaxing to escape from everything that goes with promoting a single,” Tina says. “I’ve planted up the garden and I even did a lot of the renovations on the house myself, which I’m proud of. Leigh-on-Sea is a lovely small town on the coast of Essex and it’s famous for oysters, cockles and seafood. There’s an oyster bed right on the beach in front of my house and sometimes friends and I go out there to pick oysters for a treat. There’s also a colony of seals on the sand banks that you can swim out to or just watch from the garden.”
