1998 was a year that was marked with more than amazing record sales and exciting new creative ventures for the young, rising star. It also marked her biggest accomplishment thus far - the birth of her record company, label and booking agency, SwanSisters Promotions. In December 1999, Tania Elizabeth released a second CD, This Side Up which featured her high energy Celtic, World Beat and Jazz-Rock Fusion mixed with ballads that can touch the soul. Known and respected for her ability to improvise, Tania Elizabeth shines on this album which she co-produced with Gemini-Award winner Paul Brosseau of Nomad Studios. Another new development that year was a partnership with Save The Children Canada. Tania committed her name to Save the Children Canada's "Out from the Shadows and Into the Light" Program.
The Program is aimed at alleviating what Tania calls, "One of the world's worst crimes; the sexual exploitation of children." Tania also acted as an advocate on behalf of the cause. After touring Canada, Australia and China, Tania co-founded the group "The Duhks", a genre-bending force of nature that garnered three Juno award nominations, one Juno win, several Folk Alliance and Americana Association Award nominations and a Grammy nomination in its 6 and a half year life.
