Atlantic Records Signs Pop Phenomenon Katy Tiz; New Single, "The Big Bang," Exploding at Top 40 Radio After Being Feted by Clear Channel/iHeartRadio; Rock Mafia-Produced Track Just Declared American Top 40's "Breakout" Song of the Week; Debut Album Due Later This Year

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2014) - Atlantic Records has announced its signing of breakout pop phenomenon Katy Tiz. The UK-based singer's smash single, "The Big Bang," is available now on the iTunes Store and at all leading DSPs.

Named just last weekend as American Top 40's "Breakout Song," "The Big Bang" is rapidly ascending at CHR/Pop radio outlets nationwide. Written and produced by Rock Mafia -- whose original 2010 version of the track remains a massive multi-platform favorite -- the track's meteoric success got underway last month after Clear Channel/iHeartRadio declared the then-unsigned Tiz as their "On The Verge" artist for March. "The Big Bang" exploded right out of the box, with total audience numbers now in excess of 11 million. The track is now climbing the iTunes Store's "Top Pop Songs" chart as well as Shazam's "Top 100 USA." A companion video for "The Big Bang" will follow shortly.

Tiz has fast earned accolades for her banging blend of wry lyrics with contemporary pop hooks and propulsive hip-hop and reggae-inspired beats. The London-based singer/songwriter is currently hard at work recording her eagerly anticipated debut album, set to arrive via Atlantic later this year.
