Combining the "girl power" attitude of the Spice Girls with the modern stance of Kesha, U.K. singer Katy Tiz broke through in 2013 with the dance-pop hit "Red Cup." Tiz originally began singing in a duo with her brother, but after gigging around the U.K. with their folk-rock music, Tiz decided in 2011 that pure pop was her calling, and that it was best to take on this quest solo. After posting the demo of her song "Fire Fire" to the taste-making ArjanWrites, Tiz was contacted by Arjan, the blog's owner, who had been asked to pass along the contact information for Lava Records A&R head Harinder Rana. She would sign with the Lava label and release "Red Cup" in 2013. The cathartic single was co-produced by superstar producer RedOne.
