Tie Bond started off as an athlete but eventually fell in love with music. Tie Bond has always had a love for making music and looks up to the artistic offerings of Wiz Khalifa, Raine Maida, and Drake.
Tie Bond recorded his first professional single "Palm Trees" in Toronto, working with music engineer Myer Clarity. He then went on to shoot and release the "Palm Trees" music video in the summer of 2019, with Director Chris Cordova. Tie Bond recently stayed a month in Los Angeles, working with various artists from the popular group Taylor Gang, recording new music for an early 2020 release. We had to recognize the tough work-ethic and fruitful conduction of his music that resonates highly well with the listeners. Tie Bond knows how to reel you in with his refreshing melodies and refined beats that give him an upper hand on the competitive music industry that’s taking over right now. The way he ensures he remains constant and relevant is by changing his sound with each release. With the release of “Palm Trees”, Tie Bond hoped for an exclusive visual experience from the perspective of the listener. Tropical and refreshing elements are staples to Tie Bond's sound, and we know that he'll be able to transcend further as an artist using these elements throughout 2020!

Welcome back to BuzzMusic Tie Bond. Tell us, how was living in LA for a month? What kind of inspiration did you get from the trip?
Thanks! It was great to be out there working & experiencing LA. I gained a lot of inspiration & knowledge from the people I worked with, on how to further my career for 2020 and take it to the next level, by getting in a strategy session with Nicole Tiovanni, Pierre Balian & Loody boy from Taylor Gang, to being in studio with Pierre/Loody recording a whole EP & planning for 2020.
Talk to us about your single “Palm Trees”. What was the vision you had for this record?
While writing this record, I always had the vision to shoot a music video. So that helped the process of writing it & making it come so naturally & I also wanted to give people a really dope summer/celebration song that is different & timeless.
What was your favorite element in the production of the video to “Palm Trees”? What was it about this element that you favored?
My favorites probably the evening scene with the malibu sunset in front of the pool & The all-white scene inside the Picasso Of Malibu. Because of just how it looks & connects on camera & never thought that my music would get to a point like this from being in such a small town.
What were some of the challenges you had to overcome making “Palm Trees”?
I guess just writing the verses & making it a relatable/dreamy/luxury upbeat song for everybody to enjoy. & once it was finished I knew I had made something special.
How would you describe the songwriting approach to “Palm Trees”?
The approach was to just make an upbeat, summer/celebration record, that could be played anytime. And the more I got into it, the more naturally the lyrics came to me.
What’s next for you from an artistic standpoint in 2020, Tie Bond?
I got a new single + video coming, followed by an EP. & my debut album which will be released later in the year. I'm going to start doing more shows in my city & surrounding areas & take my career to the next level.
