Called an 'A-list performer' (Philadelphia City Paper) and a 'rising star' (Philadelphia Daily News), Philadelphia soul-jazz vocalist and performer Tiffany Jones has been lauded for the soul and sincerity behind her voice.
The color of her voice and the melodies of her original compositions are drenched in soul with jazz inflections, while her honest, heartfelt lyrics touch listeners with a message of love, joy, hope and healing.
Tiffany’s love of performing started at a young age. Growing up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, she sang her first solo in church at the age of three.
“Music has been a huge part of my life since I can remember,” says Jones. “It is the thread that holds both sides of my family together.”
