About Tina Schlieske
Schlieske, originally hails from Minneapolis, MN and is best known for fronting the band Tina and the B-Side Movement, now Tina and the B-Sides.
Pursuing every avenue she came across from the glam rock of Bowie and T Rex, the showmanship of Elvis, the soul music of Aretha to the singer-songwriters of Joni Mitchell et al. She released several albums on her own label Movement Records with the B-Sides and soon signed a major record deal with Sire Records in 1996.
The band released two CDs for Sire, “Salvation” and “It’s All Just The Same”, with their songs featured in commercials and major movie soundtracks such as ‘The Traveller’, ‘Very Bad Things’, and ‘A Simple Plan’.
When the B-Sides took a hiatus, Schlieske moved permanently to California, forming and playing with several other bands: Lola and the Red Hots (now Lola and the Red Family Band), Tina’s Elvis and most recently California-based, Tina Schlieske and the Graceland Exiles.
In 2005 Tina released her first solo album produced by Sheldon Gomberg, “Slow Burn,” and in 2008 Schlieske released ‘Evil Gal Blues’, an homage to her favorite female blues singers.
