Tiffany Austin's Debut Album, "Nothing But Soul"
ALBUM RELEASE CONCERT
Two Performances at 7pm and 8:30pm
Tiffany Austin is a Los Angeles-born vocalist, songwriter, lyricist, and U.C. Berkeley law graduate whose musical career has spanned three continents. She has performed in cities across the country and the globe at venues such as Yoshi’s (SF), Stern Grove, SFJAZZ, Skirball Cultural Center (Los Angeles), Motion Blue (Japan), and Jazz at Lincoln Center (NY). During her extensive vocal career, she has worked with many eminent artists, including Roy Ayers, John Handy, bassist/composer Marcus Shelby, saxophone player/drummer Howard Wiley, and the Japanese composer of "Kill Bill" fame, Tomoyasu Hotei.
She is currently recording a Hoagy Carmichael project for release this year, which fuses elements of blues, swing, soul, and hiphop. Her soulful vocal approach has not only drawn her into jazz projects, but has also lead to collaboration on contemporary music recordings, including a national tour with soul group Orgone, and recording for UnderCover's Sly and the Family Stone tribute.
Tiffany currently teaches voice at the East Bay Center for the Arts in Richmond, CA, and continues to develop her Creole music project, for which she received a 2014 artist's residency at the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco.
