T I F F A N Y J O Y:
“I can’t remember a time in my life without music … When I was a little girl I would spending hours in the bathtub creating melody lines for the instructions on the back of shampoo bottles. As I grew, my heart started to feel more deeply and my mind eventually found the words to fill the melodies. My journey so far has been a series of beautiful, heart-shattering, breathtaking, devastating, humbling, and utterly enriching experiences. For some reason I am lucky enough to be able to relate these experiences via song. It’s a gift that I don’t fully understand, but humbly accept and will honor as long as I live”

After performing many open mic venues, selling out cafes, and sharing the bill with various artists ... she teamed up with musician/producer Marcio Brenes in 2004 to begin production of her first full-length bilingual debut album titled "El Ritmo del Mundo."
In the summer of 2007, Tiffany celebrated the independent release of "El Ritmo del Mundo" at the Purple Onion in San Francisco, CA. Here's what reviewers had to say about the performances that night and the album: “With her silky smooth voice and Bossa beats it is the type of music you would expect to hear wafting out some exotic foreign hideaway.” The album is now available for purchase via various online sources such as iTunes and CD Baby, and also at many retail establishments.
