Tiffany launched her music career in 2003, with a chance audition and subsequent sold-out performance at B.B. King Blues Club in NYC’s Times Square. The show, called “Soulfully Sinatra”, proved to herself and the world that, despite her classical training, she is indeed a soul singer. She formed The Discarnate Band that same year, starting out on jazz & soul standards á la Etta James and Billie Holiday, and later writing original soul/jazz/pop, with influences ranging from punk-rock to hip-hop, and recording her first EP, “Amor Frio” in 2006-07 (released in 2010, produced by Brooklyn dub legend Dr. Israel). In summer 2008, she relocated from Brooklyn to Westford, Vermont, where her band continues to play regionally to much acclaim with herself on vocals/keys, Gabe Jarrett on drums and Giovanni Rovetto on bass.
In 2010, her jazz career had an accidental renaissance, due to a double-booked show that led to her sitting in with local Vermont band Pojazz. Since then she continues to perform with many of Vermont’s finest jazz musicians. She’s also taken the stage internationally, singing jazz in Bermuda, Canada, and most recently, Goa, India.
Singing since age 4, Tiffany grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, where she sang in church, with her family’s gospel singing group, and with the Nebraska Children’s Chorus, with whom she competed and toured throughout the U.S. and Europe. She studied music and magazine journalism at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and post college spent a couple of years living in San Francisco as Editorial Director of an underground art culture magazine called FREE. Her most recent musical exploration is a 6-piece trip-hop/world/funk/reggae-fusion band called ulabalu, based out of Burlington.
