BIOGRAPHY

Tiana Ohara is a guitarist and producer from Los Angeles, CA. Her musical journey began when she picked up the guitar for the first time at age seven; there was an instant connection between the two. Tiana attended a performing arts high school in LA to develop her musicianship and later went on to study jazz guitar in New York City for a year. After moving back to LA and gaining traction online with her catchy guitar groove videos on Instagram, Tiana went on her first tour at the age of 19 with Queen Naija. She has since worked with several artists including NIKI, UMI, Raveena, Charlotte Day Wilson, and Rozzi. Along with playing in artists' live bands, Tiana also writes and produces music herself.

Helix has given me vast tonal possibilities to recreate sounds from artists' records to be played in a live setting. I love that I can get classic and also very experimental and ambient tones. Being able to have presets and snapshots has been a game changer for workflow and performance; I like having a preset for each song in a setlist and then having different tones for different sections of a song within the preset. The ability to route both a guitar and bass at the same time has created a streamlined setup in my world on stage. And the MIDI capabilities of Helix have saved my feet from tap dancing!
