Music and socially conscious jewelry come together again! Tiffany Thompson is a dear friend and a talented singer-songwriter. Her quieter, more personal shows give a sense of her character, which also comes through her uplifting music and insightful lyrics. Prior to becoming a Washington-area resident, Thompson called a lot of places home. The daughter of a minister, she was born in Iowa, but lived in Moscow, Russia in the early 1990’s. She spent her adolescence in Austin, Texas, where she recorded her first record before moving to Illinois to attend Wheaton College. Since 2008, DC has been home to Tiffany, and she’s toured throughout the East Coast and Mid-West as a solo artist, fusing together story-telling folk and pop songs. She has recently been the opening act for America at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, and Mindy Smith at Jammin’ Java in Vienna, Virginia. On her April 2011 EP, Tiffany has created an acoustic, jazzy collection of colorful pieces about life and love. Her most recent single, a collaboration with LA based producer Chris Franz, demonstrates her maturing talent and sonically points to south towards more of an Alt-Folk sound. The talented Mudpatch Family Band will be opening the night.
