In this episode, Monica sits down with saxophonist, composer, and educator Tia Fuller. They discuss the inspiration for the latest album, Diamond Cut, and the story behind the development of both the album and the tour. Tia also talks about how she got started in music, her first gig experiences after moving to NYC, how she grew while playing with Beyonce’, and her current job teaching at Berklee. They dig deep into what it means to be a female musician and band leader, and explore Brave topics such as faith vs fear, process, documenting, vulnerability, and transparency while playing music.

Being Brave is still moving with the same amount of conviction into darkness, not being able to see what’s ahead of you.

Faith is always going to open up other doors that you never even imagined… the fear will lock you into a box.

Monica got the opportunity to see Tia on her Diamond Cut Tour at the Musical Instrument Museum on Aug. 12, 2018.  “The whole term diamond cut is not only celebrating etching deeper into your own diamond as your greatness but also celebrating those who have come before and then really pouring back into the light and the love and creating a cyclic effect.” - Tia Fuller
