The longevity of her recording career is a testament to enduring talent and artistry. We are proud to see Tina take her place amongst the icons of the Australian music industry in the ARIA Hall of Fame.”

Tina’s first album was Tiny Tina and Little John with John Bowles. She was 10 years old. Tina 11th album Eleven will be released on October 30, 2015. Two of her albums were recorded in French.

Her biggest album, 1994’s Don’t Ask, sold over 700,000 copies in Australia.
