Tiz was born in Italy in 1997 to a clerk and a primary school teacher. He grew up in a small village of 250 people and studied at a nearby technical school.
Shortly after his 18th birthday, after having saved money by working at a paper mill, he moved to London in order to chase his dreams, meet as many people as possible to stimulate his creativity, and switch to the frenetic metropolitan lifestyle. Years later, having perfected his craft during his free time, his debut single "Your Dance" was released, followed by the songs "Work Now!" and "City Lights".
