SHOWTIMES: 7:30PM AND 9:30PM. Auriyan Tillman is an incredibly diverse vocalist who has been sharing her gift since she was a little girl singing in local churches, city events and school performances. She attended John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School in Augusta, GA, and developed her singing and performance skills in the demanding music program there. She became lead vocalist with the school’s jazz band and, with that experience, discovered the feel and the songs of jazz, growing a love for the music.
Following high school, Auriyan decided to pursue a career as a musician and continued her education at Kennesaw State University, studying under jazz vocalist Karla Harris. She earned her Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance in May 2023 and has been busy further developing her talents, performing at Atlanta venues such as Ray’s on the River, Ray’s in the City, Elliot St. Pub, Redlight Café, The Balzer Theatre, St. James Live and more. She’s caught the attention of some of Atlanta’s top jazz musicians and has shared the stage with people such as pianist Tyrone Jackson, drummer/producer Larry Wilson, and drummer Chris Burroughs.
Auriyan is poised to make her mark on the jazz scene as a vocalist unafraid to step outside of the expected and bring something new to the jazz conversation.
