Tiffany Shea is an award winning American singer-songwriter known for her powerfully structured and emotionally intense songs that tackle a wide range of subjects, including the rigors of modern love, spirituality and personal tragedy.
Acclaimed by her contemporaries, Shea consistently reconciles her love/hate relationship with a fickle music industry by recording albums brimming with original material, and this is reflected in the company she keeps - having been billed with the likes of B. B. King, Ani DiFranco, BareNaked Ladies, and Natalie Merchant.
Tiffany Shea has recently expanded her resume by writing "Phoenix" - a collection of hits demonstrating the expressiveness of her four-octave voice.
The album retains the eccentric, idiosyncratic, and literary lyrical edge for which Shea is best known; and her eclectic and meticulous musical and production styling continues to bolster her fan base on both sides of the Atlantic.
~*~ NATIONAL PRESS QUOTES ~*~
"If ''good'' was a genre, Shea would be the Poster Child."
--- Chicago Tribune (Illinois)
"Tiffany Shea is hardly a gentle balladeer with a wounded heart. She sings with raw passion and throws down energetic shows of original alt-pop-rock. Shea is a cool jewel with an attitude..."
--- Fort Worth Star Telegram (Texas)
"I watched as kids in their teens stood just inches from the stage hanging on to her every word...they were caught in a trance that she wove with her vibrant voice, animated facial expressions and intermittent sincere dialogue."
"She''s got a tight band and a strong voice on her own often angst-filled songs which lose neither power nor promise in translation."
--- Buddy Magazine (Texas)
"Musical Sushi...Raw, Delectible, Modern and Entertaining."
--- Go!Triad (N. Carolina)
"The Tiffany Shea Band is like the little engine that could."
--- The Boston Weekender (Massachusettes)
"Tiffany Shea puts the rock where it needs to go."
--- Creative Loafing, Atlanta (Georgia)
"Her songs deliver universal themes in a pop-flavored package."
--- Dallas Morning News (Texas)
"She''s become a consistent presence at every imaginable club since the late 90''s... her pipes are undeniably expressive, and she generates real heat with bluesy-passion."
--- The Austin Chronicle (Texas)
"She''s also a hoot. Shea played more than three hours of original music at her CD Release party, then she attended the Grammy Awards by creating a fake employee identification card, wearing a fake uniform, sneaking inside the convention center, then changing into a dress, and using another faked all-access pass. That kind of chutzpah, combined with obvious talent and stage presence, makes Shea a favorite of yours and ours."
