Tina Cousins began as a fashion model. She performed in a Rolling Stones video when she was 20 years old. The turning point of her career was a big fashion show in where she replaced a singer that cancelled. A local record company made a deal with Tina and arranged her to PWL studios where she began working with the producer Pete Waterman (also known from Steps’ songs) and composers like Karl Twigg and Mark Topham. When you’ve done modelling everyone thinks that it’s not really your voice on the record. At first I had to convince people that I really can sing, she explained.

Her first single Killin’ Time was released in 1997 and was a hit all over Europe (78th in MTV’s best dance videos of all time in 1998, #15 in the UK). The following single entitled <strongAngel wasn’t as successful as Killin’ Time, but the real breakthrough was with SASH!’s single Mysterious Times from which Tina will always be remembered. The track was featured as well in her first album Killing Time as in the SASH! Life Goes On album.

Even if at first she didn’t want to become only the voice of SASH! she finally decided to record another single in co-operation with SASH! : Just Around The Hill.
