Great Singer! We hired Tiphanie to sing for our wedding ceremony and cocktail music. She did a lovely job. The music was relaxed, romantic and perfectly fit the vibe that we were after. She had a good range of music to play and my guests loved the French songs thrown in. Tiphanie also played with an accompanying violinist, which added a lot of class to the performance. Logistically Tiphanie was communicative, remembered to ask al the questions I forgot to think about and also brought her own portable speaker system to play out on the lawn for our ceremony, which was perfect! Would definitely recommend her for any cocktail type party - wedding or otherwise!
Doucet got her start early on in the music and entertainment world. A starring role at 15 in the film Le bébé d'Elsa, and later in the Glee-like TV series Chante!, gave her popularity in her native France, and the unlikely foundations for what would be a very eclectic musical trajectory. After a brief stint in the country-esque outfit Milk, she branched out to form her own musical style and sensibility, nourished over the years by a wealth of musical influences. Artists like Norah Jones, Ingrid Michaelson and Feist, served as the pillars upon which her sound was modeled. Yet, despite these clearly delineated influences, her upcoming debut album "Under my sun" is a testament to the uniqueness and originality of her voice.
After her career in TV came to a close, Doucet decided to gamble it all and make her way to America and start fresh, landing in sunny LA and, subsequently, the big apple. The 180 degree turn that her life took left her old life in shambles, bringing her plenty of heartbreak and homesickness, which would prove to be a wellspring of musical inspiration. This moment of transition afforded Doucet plenty of material to write her own songs, which she began testing out on street corners, cruises and cafés throughout New York and her newly adopted home in Jersey City, New Jersey. The overwhelmingly positive reception was such that she decided to release her own work. While working on her single "Lucky guy" Doucet caught the attention of producer and singer songwriter Simone Felice ( Lumineers, Bat for Lashes, Jade Bird...). Her upcoming album, recorded up in Catskills Moutains, is a bittersweet meditation on love and relationships, echoing the chanteuses of yore that served as Doucet's inspiration. The songs are in large part an autobiographical portrait of the artist, ranging stylistically from indie, folk and pop sensibilities. The sound is amplified by Felice and David Baron's production, which never feels intrusive, serving as the perfect complement to the singer's overpowering voice, and interjecting only at key moments of emotional revelation.
“Although there's a prevailing sense of scant acoustic elegance that makes the collection feel unified, each composition offers something special. Of course, the opening title track allures with its warm arpeggios, wistful vocals, easygoing percussion, and delicate piano and string accompaniments (courtesy of David Baron, Anneke Schaul-Yoder, and Felice). While several other selections exist in a similar air ("Shadow of You", "Les Miroirs", and closer "9 Bar Café"), pieces like "Dors" and "She" offer a faster pace and lusher symphonic arrangement. Meanwhile, "Come to Me" proves especially inviting with its handclaps and optimistic splendor, whereas "Peace of Heart" is a fervent gem in every way, making it a clear standout of the bunch. Really, every song culminates beautifully to make Under My Sun a piercing, elegant statement. Jordan blum, Pop Matters (Aug 08, 2018)
”Shaped by her experiences in France, Los Angeles, New York, and her recently adopted New Jersey home alike, Doucet's new work embraces a folksier, jazz-tinged gentleness. Its subtle warmth instantly feels like home, pervading the senses in a way not dissimilar to Norah Jones or Lucy Rose. Yet, in spite of any similarities you may draw between her and other great songwriters, Doucet's dreamy vocal quality is markedly distinct, especially in how she tenderly incorporates it into her music to tell stories unique to her own outlook and experiences.
Jonathan Frahm * 10 July 2018- For Folk Sake
"Her vocal performance is compelling in its attention to detail–the ends of lines and the wordless sighs that close the song contain a lot of emotion without going for the big move. If you're looking for a relaxing summer tune, this is what you're looking for. Highly recommended."
Stephen Carradini, for Independant Clauses
