Tiphanie Doucet is a French singer-songwriter and actress who had her first staring role as a child in French film “le Bebe d’Elsa" and later the Glee-lie TV Series “Chante" giving her popularity in her native France. Focusing on her love of music Including playing the harp and dancing, she transitioned fulsome into a music career and eventually traveled to LA and New York where she now resides. In 2020 Tiphanie performed on the Canadian Voice where she was praised by the judges for her dreamy voice and faultless emotional performances before they regretfully lost her beautiful talent in the battle rounds. After the critically acclaimed success of her 2018 LP Under My Sun produced by Simone Felice and David Baron, who have worked with the likes of The Lumineers Bat For Lashes and Jade Bird which was dubbed as “A richly poignant and pastoral journey that reveals Doucet as a master of the style," by Pop Matters, Tiphanie Doucet revealed her ethereal new EP Painted Blue, an introspective five-track offering featuring her seductive vocals and sophisticated imagery. The first single "You and I " amassed over 50,000 listens on Spotify, 23 000 views on YouTube and gained exposure with the likes of Rolling Stone France. Back in France with the Pandemic, she started producing music at home while gaining traction with Live streaming performances. Now settled in the South where she played over 50 shows during the Summer, she is ready to release new music in 2022. The first one is a cover " Joe le Taxi" Who has never hummed this song?! In English: "Joe the Taxi Driver" is a French song written for French singer Vanessa Paradis by Franck Langolff and Étienne Roda-Gil. Paradis recorded the song in 1987, at the age of fourteen. It went on to top the singles chart in France for eleven weeks, and, uncommonly for a French-language song at that time, was released in the UK and Ireland the following year, where it peaked at numbers three. Sales exceeded 3 million, Vanessa Paradis' career was launched! The captivating Tiphanie Doucet, French songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, offers you a fresh, accessible, and groovy version, delivering very smooth and inviting vocals. The dreamy melodic arrangements supported by the deep and groovy beat, makes the hook even more catchy. Her cover of this great success, which she produced herself, is approached with flair. The refined synthetic arrangements of this version with a vaporous atmosphere instill a softly catchy quality. The hushed female vocals give this catchy track an ethereal atmosphere. Along with a lot of great orignal material, Tiphanie has always played “Covers”, and has notably recorded an EP Re-imagined” whose various titles which she carefully re-arranges, paint the sweet picture of her pop musical influences. and acoustic, skillfully woven through her precious folk touch. She kept playing covers during all the pandemic, gaining visibility with her many "Live streams shows" on platforms like Sessions Live and then Clubhouse. During the winter of 2021 she released an unrecognizable cover of one of Lenny Kravitz’s greatest hit revisited with an incredible soft and magical taste. Produced by David Baron, Lenny's pianist arranger himself on the disc "Raise Vibration" it was recorded at Sun Mountain Studio, where the Lumineers themselves produced their albums. She filmed the Music Video herself on the empty beaches of Ramatuelle, a small town in the French Riviera where she has settled since the summer of 2021. A week after creating her TikTok profile, she duets “Quelqu’un m’a dit” from famous folk Singer Carla Bruni : the vidéo ends up been shared by Carla Bruni herself. Joe le taxi opens the door to a new electro pop influence that the artist will continue to unveil all summer 2022 to finish with a new album scheduled for September 2022. Fans of Feist, Charlotte Cardin, Elio, Maggie Rogers or Taylor Swift, will have their hearts stolen by Tiphanie’s earnest lyrics and calming, yet majestic take on alternative-tinged electro folk-pop.

Tiphanie! So nice to hear how things are developing. Love the pop elements here, and the thicker production that you're using. This made me wish I spoke French so I understood the lyrics! I had to google the original track - this is a really nice interpretation / update. It modernizes the song & your vocal performance really makes it your own. There's a nice kick at 1:37 that REALLY stands out (I almost thought it was going to become a full on dance tune) - I think that the song maintains a lot of momentum & there's a lot to like about the overall structure. Your pop sensibilities are coming through loud & clear, everything is polished and professional, and there are a LOT of interesting elements throughout. Well done! I still love the simpler acoustic music you make, but showing off your range as an artist will only benefit you - especially as you're looking for more opportunities.
This is an excellent cover of a classic song. The vocals sound brilliant and the production is spot-on. It emerges quickly as a heartfelt slice of contemporary synth pop. Great hear Tiphanie taking this direction and trying new things! I’ll definitely feature this on the next edition of my Spotify Fresh Finds playlist.
Thank you for submitting Tiphanie! Starting out the mix on the track sounds solid. Clean, crisp and each instrument is sitting in a good place within the track. Musically the arrangement moves things forward nicely and the track is powerful and catchy. I definitely caught myself nodding my head to the beat. The vocals are captivating and inviting. I enjoyed the fact that you’re allowing space between lyrics/vocals. I don’t understand the lyrics, but still thoroughly enjoyed the record from all angles. Nice cover! I don’t have anything to submit it for at the moment, but again thank you for submitting!
Amazing. So much fun. The beat to your songwriting, I was hooked quickly and was interested through the entire track. I didn't know what you were saying, but I still loved the song. Really great job.
Hi Tiphanie, Thanks for the submission. Really nice song. Chill vibe, relaxing, fresh sounding production. For me the vocals could be pushed back to sit more in the vibe of the music. Other than that I don't think I would change anything else. The vocal performance is great. Breathy, sexy. Fits right into the vibe. My area of focus in licensing for media. So I'll touch on that. It's got a great vibe. So for that alone I think this could work as source music in a scene at a chic bar/restaurant providing mood. Uses where the music and lyrics are upfront would be tough for this because of the romantic love nature of the lyrics. However the use of French and English would make it attractive for Film or TV shows where a character is or has travelled to France or a French speaking country. Great. Work! All the best with the release :)
An excellent slice of bilingual dream pop, which I think could transfer well to the likes of 6Music and Amazing Radio over here in the UK. The production is excellent. If you’re aiming for 6Music as an international artist, it might be worth investing in a UK-based radio plugger if you have a bit of budget. I can always recommend a few names if you need. If not, I can play you on my Amazing Radio show (please upload to amazingradio.com when you can, or when the track is finished) and I can start spreading the word from there. If you’re looking for labels, I can also potentially recommend a few... Great to have you back! And congrats again on your fantastic recent releases too.
Hey Tiphanie, Speaking as a (lazy) English guy I think it would be good to get lyric sheets in English as well as the language the songs are sung in. That will definitely help you re sync agents who don't speak another language. If they don't know what they are saying they won't take the risk. Do you have copies of the instrumentals? You'll need them to send on sync too. Track wise, they're good. Strong. With this sound I think you either go stripped or overblown ie full on strongs, orchestra, the works. You're right to avoid Sony ATV via someone else, you would just become another title in a huge catalogue. You need that success to make you stand out. On you DISCO you should also put up American Boy (and the instrumental). I'm not sure if you know the releases but you should check out Nouvelle Vague and Jose Gonzalez for some similar ideas for sound. Bat For Lashes "What's A Girl To Do" I can see too, as well as Dani Siciliano (check the Maya Carlyle of Walk The Line if you can find it). I can see your production may need some tightening up slightly, but as mentioned it is good. You just need to make yourself stand out slightly more (5% - 10%) Doing what you have done with Ocean Blue is smart, 2 versions, different languages. I get the swapping thing but I can see that being a hindrance as much as a help. As far as sending stuff out, build you mailing list on DISCO (loads of the agents are searchable) and also search them on LinkedIn, The Sync Report, etc. There are a few ways to build it to a good position. Listening to Hide Away again after the few acts mentioned above, there are some great bits in it but I think you have to make other bits stand out more. At 2.15 that breakdown is great, but you need the build before and after to really impact. The problem is that to me it is a little samey and not enough impact. That doesn't mean loud it just means something has to grab. Overall it's good, but get that sheen Hope that helps! Best wishes Tim
I really loved this. It was so well done, very smooth, stylish, and it's own thing while still reminding me of other musicians and songs. I do think that, unfortunately, you may be looking to attract a relatively niche audience, but if you have more tunes like this, you may be able to get some good press attention, especially in French-speaking countries.
An well-directed and well-produced video, with Tiphanie taking centre stage as a genuine star. Some brilliant visuals here, and an engaging video narrative thread to complement the song. I’ll make sure that I feature the track on my next Fresh Finds playlist, and will have a think about opportunities for the video to spread to a wider audience. Initial thoughts would be to submit to sites like The Line of Best Fit, The Most Radicalist, Acid Stag and Clash, who have a great track record in hosting video premieres by emerging artists.
Hi Tiphanie - really like your vocal right from the start and then going into French for the 2nd verse was really tasty. I also really like the song. As far as music / material that I'm looking for - for all my things (label / publishing / blog) really is more on the uptempo side. Especially on the indier / singer / songwriter songs I find that the first "wins" we can often get are on the synch side = which also help tremendously with recoupment - and those tend to (but not always) lean on the tempo side vs something more mid or lower tempo. But overall really great work with the song, production, voice and video. Feels like this was circling the hit zone for me. In the meantime I put this in our weekly indie chart on Spotify and we usually re order announce it on Tuesday. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/10S981NoNhgn9tdUq9jNFE?si=b-eqrdLpRoCgCwsbxiOeyQ Will check out some more!
This is extremely pretty. Very nice video, too. I know it's hard to rise above all the noise and competition, but you seem to be off to a good start. To make it easier, I'd consider hiring a publicist (if you haven't already) who can help your music cut through, including to music supervisors who might be looking for something like this for their projects. Have you pitched to public radio like the BBC and the CBC in Canada? The CBC is often overlooked by foreign artists. What about a social media strategy? Are you responding to all comments that come in? That's essential when it comes to turning curious people into fans. Tell you what: Send me a high-quality MP3 and I'll see if I can get you a spin on Canadian radio. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also share this on my social networks, which is good for about 100,000 people.
Hey Tiphanie - thanks for the submission. This is one of my favorite songs and really nice interpretation of it. From a publishing perspective - of course, since this is a cover -there's not much i can do on that front. From a blog perspective - my experience with covers is that most blogs don't want to cover covers - so I wouldn't go overboard in pitching this to blogs, media outlets as it's really about original content. But as far as promoting it - I'm sure (?) you could get some traction in making a YT video - setting up some targeted ads to appropriate audiences - including Cyndy Lauper maybe? If i were you I'd also reach out to the original writers - maybe they'd share it on the socials. Hope that's helpful. p.s. in regards to holding on to releasing music - i think it's as long as it's high quality - you want to be releasing music consistently - so that's a yes from me. BTW if you have more questions, etc...I do have personal coaching and you can find me at this link: https://www.upwork.com/o/profiles/users/~01e36b6daa7af00a5a/ (sorry that's it's not less expensive).

Hi Tiphanie. Congrats on taking control of your own career. I see a lot of DIY artists doing great out there. Ultimately it's the music business. And the owner running their own company, in the beginning, is always the best person to do it. Even if they need help. They will have the vested interest to push their dream forward much more than someone that's just doing it as a job. Also it's a lifelong career and you will see it that way. Whereas a manager is looking for short term profit. Having said all that lets talk about the music. I thought it is a great song. I like it a lot. I love moody songs like this that take the listener on a journey. And I felt that from the music, production, but most importantly your vocal performance. All the elements worked together well to set the mood. I think this is a solid release for sure and you will do well with it. As for my expertise in the business: Film/TV. Personally for my own company I currently wouln't have many opportunities to use this song. Where I see it as a great fit would be in a film. Could be an English film where a character is French. Or the protagonoists go to France. Some way to take advantage of the lyrics in both languages. If you can find a movie director that falls in love with it and they happen to have a project in which it would be a good fit, you may land a fantastic film placement. Thanks again for sharing this with me. Really enjoyed the song and look forward to seeing/hearing more of your career and music. All the best!
I dig it! I'm really loving the production here... As I was listening, in my head I was thinking "I hope it builds here..." and it delivered. I'm always a fan of songs with more than one language. I'm a bit biased of course but definitely think some more organic, symphonic strings towards the second half could add a nice flavor. Perhaps for the live version. Another idea would be to add a short vocal line at the end to reiterate the point, but in a more intimate subdued manner not too dissimilar to how the track opens - a "All I want is you...." or a "You and I..." I'll shoot you an email with some Youtube channel playlist that might be worth looking into along with submissions contacts. Excited to hear more, and congrats with the Sofar shows!
Again, this is good. Keep plugging away, especially on the sync and social media stuff. You've got the talent. Now you've just got to run into a little good luck. I take it you're based in New York, correct? Let me pass this around to a few people I know. They may have line on management.
Another great song from Tiphanie, with heart-warming vocals and further proof of some rich, cinematic production. This song has a real lift in the latter stages too, after a patient build, rewarding the listener for time spent with it. I feel that a site like syncrmusic.com would be a good bet for this track, not only to open up to some possible sync opportunities, but also some label avenues - I t’s a strong enough record to put Tiphanie on a few radars. Overall, a fine progression from her Under The Sun album, released on streaming services last year, and a great benchmark for future material she sends our way!
Thank you for reaching out and submitting first and foremost. Starting out the mix on the track sounds solid. Good space between all of the elements and everything sounds clean, clear and wide. I like certain elements of the record and others I’m just not sure about. The intro I do like more sparse, but melodically it feels like it’s missing something. As the record grows and moves forward I like the changes within the music and the vocal overall though. I just think the record could be as good sparse as it is full with all the instruments. I think the right producer could take this to another level. Your voice is great though and that is the key to your records so it just needs be showcased properly with the right production/sound. I think the synch/tv film area is a good space for you though definitely. One big thing for me was that the record sounds like it starts out late. Your engineer/producer needs to make sure you have a few seconds before to cue the song up so that it’s not abruptly starting. I hope my feedback helps thank you!
Hi Tiphanie - thanks for the submission. I do really like the song, your voice and the production is solid. My overall hunch is that it might be a matter of time of just doing these songs time and time again with quality and building a fan base. The French was also unexpected - and nice! Overall thought I think you just need one more level to go to for the songs and your artistry to "stand out" one more level. Not sure what that is - but keep in mind there are up to 50,000 songs (not an exaggeration) coming out everyday - so the trick is how to stand out from everything. Hope that's helpful. I wouldn't hire a PR company at this point. I'd rather - if I were you put that $1,000 or whatever into building you audience on Spotify for followers. There's a great course by Ari of Ari's Take for Spotify Growth that's worth looking into. I would also use Submit Hub. And be consistent with releasing etc...I think you could start building a nice base.
Well-written song with a lot of emotion though I feel this leans more towards the pop / adult contemporary genre over indie though the instrumentation is def a standout on this track. I looked at your EPK and would suggest hiring a professional designer to update it as it looks a bit dated. Seems like you're playing some good shows and markets so consider trying to meet with any industry professionals in the major markets. I would suggest including links to your social media profiles with your fluence submission and if you're not on Bandcamp already, add your music there. Consider making visual accompaniments / music videos for your songs too. Best of luck!
Lovely, intimate, emotional tune. Thank you for sharing your feelings with me and your audience. I am so glad to hear that you have found a college agent! That will help make this dream a reality by bringing in some income. If you can get into the college circuit, the money will follow. If you can build a following at colleges, a touring agent will come your way soon enough. Keep nurturing a fan base and put together a team of people that you trust. Be careful with publicists, as many will charge a lot and do very little. Find one that understands your vision and accepts your budget. I would be honored to hear some more tunes so please feel free to submit your strongest efforts and I will gladly spread the word. Please let me know if you need any merch to support your EP/album release and holler when you get your college gigs - some of those kids have lots of the parents cash to spend on a t-shirt or tote bag! Best of luck and I look forward to speaking with you again soon.
Extremely pretty. No notes from me on songwriting, performance, or production. I do have some things you need to think about. (1) If the budget allows, try to get something up on YouTube. Even a lyric video will do. That's still the biggest music discovery platform out there. (2) Make sure this is available on all the other streaming music services beyond Spotify. TuneCore is a company that can make that happen for you. (3) What's your social media strategy? You'll need to service all your fans across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. (4) Do you plan to take this to radio? Public radio would be your first best bet. (5) Good move approaching music supervisors, too. This song screams "sync!" Great stuff. I hope to hear more from you.
Tiphanie thank you for reaching out and submitting. Starting out the mix on the track sounds like a rough demo, but I’m fine with that as long as I can still get an idea of the overall direction of the song. You show nice musicianship within the piano and strings and melodically the track is quite haunting and melancholy. Your voice really sounds great on here. Your performance is quite raw, but I like that since it works well with the lyrics/story. It’s not a perfect composition, but it’s quite vivid and I felt every line with how you delivered the lyric. It was sung as if you’ve been through this scenario or are going through it now which is important to me as a listener. I want to believe the performer has a real attachment to the lyric/concept. I do take all my submissions though Fluence if you’d like me to critique more. Thank you!
Hi Tipahanie, great to hear you again! I loved spending a few moments with you a while back. You are especially creative and over the top talented. Now to your latest song! The wonderfully economic arrangement of this song allows for your heartfelt, evocative vocal to really shine. I love the tone of your vocal. It really sucks you in. I may have an opportunity for you. Please send this song to me via email: email@example.com. If you could also send me Under My Sun, I would appreciate it. I want to submit these songs to a new artist I am working with from Australia. Her project will be recording in the summer of next year so there is some time. Please send me your contact information again. Cheers, Jeff
Thanks for the submission. I really enjoyed the performance. I wished the arrangement had gone "somewhere" as it progressed. I tend to listen with Film/TV synch licensing in mind as that is the area I specialize in. From that perspective the vibe is great, could easily sit under a scene. Lyrically however there are some specifics in there that could potentially compete with the story on screen. So if this is not yet the final version I would recommend doing something the arrangement to further pull at the heartstrings with a build. As far as synchronization goes don't be afraid to pitch it to some music supervisors or filmmakers that you may know. It could just be what they may be looking for in the right scene. Wishing you all the best with the release and your career. Look forward to hearing more music from you in the future. Best, Pedro
Bonjour Tiphanie! Thanks for reaching out and sharing this lovely track with me! I dig it! I agree with you in regards to your mix notes. I'm also wondering if other elements can be brought out more when the second verse starts. The somber melancholic piano opening screams licensing/sync! I'd definitely try reaching out to music supervisors and sharing this. It has a very cinematic element to it. Perhaps a good strategy upon release would be to shoot some sort of ephemeral music video to release at the same time. Re: recommendations, I'll think on this and get back to you - I definitely think you shouldn't just limit yourself to reaching out to Canandian entities. If you haven't already, I'd suggest reaching out to your Performing Rights Organization and see if they can recommended any contacts. Looking forward to listening to the rest of the EP later this week! Hope this helps!
This is a GREAT song. Beautiful vocal. I love it. Don't release an EP. There are 40k new tracks released every day. Adding to the avalanche guarantees you will be lost in the noise. 30k streams is insignificant. One million streams is the starting point. If you don't know how you will get 1m streams on a track don't release it. You need a strategy. Press does not drive streams. Touring does not drive streams. You need a label and a plan. Email me and I will connect you with Warner A&R.
First off thank you for submitting. Starting out the mix sounds like a very rough studio demo. There definitely needs to be some work done here. Right now there is a lot of mud coming in from frequencies fighting for space mainly in the backing track. The vox aren't too bad, but the music does overpower the vox at times. I like the kind of industrial production mixed with the warm pianos. I do wish there were some more changes within the melody though overall to keep things really moving forward. There is some solid musicianship shown within the track itself though. The male vocal performance is really solid. I like the tone and delivery a lot. Lyrically a nice story is told and I really liked the outro of the record where things get really big. I think if this were mixed better it could be really cool for a synch situation. I hope my feedback helps thanks again!
Hey The Racer...really liked this overall...enjoyable all the way through. I'll send my editor at We Are: The Guard a note about this one and we'll either do a write up or add it to one of our playlists upon release.
Hi Tiphanie...I generally really like this especially the musicality. It reminds me a little bit of Mother Falcon who i work with. (you might like them). In the singer/songwriter/musciality space I think it's really strong. I'm typically looking for more beat driven indie pop music...both on my blog and for what I'm looking to sign but I'll drop the song in my Best of Indie playlist on Spotify...we're still developing that but i know a lot of people go to check it out. Hope that's helpful. I'll also start following on soundcloud : )
Hi Tiphanie...thanks for the submission. I think it's a really nice singer/songwriter song And also really beautiful voice and presentation here. Simple but classic. That being said from a label or publishing perspective (or for the blog we have at We Are: The Guard) I'm just not sure genre wise and thematically it's a fit for what we do and also the French part sounds beautiful but I'm mostly essentially looking for English works. In the meantime if it's helpful, i gave you a follow back on soundcloud : ) and will keep an ear out for your latest.
I liked this, though I'm not sure it stood out enough for me. Music is so crowded these days, you need to put something out there that really rises above the rest, and I think you have talent, but need to work toward being bigger, louder, or just better than others.
A lovely, honest sounding tune with a beautiful voice and laid back vibe. Nice work! My advice would be to gig as much as possible and surround yourself with the right people and continue to network. It looks like you're working with a publicist and licensing agency now so that's a good start. Perhaps consider hiring the right manager to help connect you even more if you're looking to do this full time. Social media is of course really important these days so work on your online presence in an authentic way. The talent is definitely there, it's just about connecting the dots!
Good song! Thanks very much for the submission. So in direct response to your query here about advice for your career here's what I would have to say. I can see the vocal comparison to Norah Jones (in a good way, it's reminiscent but doesn't sound like you're copying her). I think this is a very good song. Pleasant to listen to, sweet and well sung. I think it's good, but I don't think it will stay with listeners or become catchy in the long-run. With a solid production, good voice and lyrics, really the most important component is one really memorable song. Any style of music can work, but it always come down to one song forcing its way into people's brains and insisting on staying there. That's I think the best thing for you in your career here. It'd be worth taking all the time necessary to try to find / create at least one song that has that kind of effect on listeners. If you can find that, things will come together quickly for you. Thanks again for the submission!
A really gorgeous song. The stripped-back warm instrumentation (that slightly reminds me of Nick Drake) never gets in the way of the beautifully sung vocals. This could work well for sync, as the track has plenty of space in the production and the lyrics have a positive message that could work well with various visuals.
Hi Tiphanie...really nice and delicate song here. I liked the intimacy of it and the way the song started and breathed. I liked the idea of "The Other Side" too as a lyric concept. Dug your voice and the recording i think works and supports the song. I'm not sure if it's something for me for the We Are: The Guard website or for my roster but definitely enjoyed the song. Listened twice!
Hi- Your song and performance is simplistic and straight forward. Started to lose interest and knew what was coming next both musically and lyrically about 1/2 way through the first chorus. If you want to differentiate yourself and stand out in the crowd you'll need to take chances with production, lyrics, chord changes, and melody. Listen to Feist, Joni Mitchell, Florence and the Machine, Richie Lee Jones. They've all succeeded by offering something new, interesting and exciting, You have a pretty voice which is a good starting point. Good luck!
I love how this track grows. Overall excellent mix and instrumentation! I don't really have any criticism here - I'd love to hear this performed live. Excited to check out more music! C'est un travail remarquable!
Great sound and impressive/inspiring bio. As you mentioned a Norah comparison, it reminds me of the first time I heard her at a BMI showcase in 2000. And your recording seems to capture your vibe perfectly--pure and refreshing, sparse yet still full-sounding production. Sonically, you've done your homework and are capturing your sound just as it should, representing your life's experience. I love the idea of recording French versions of your songs, offering renditions in both English and French. And as continue to perform regularly, doing all you physically can to keep your music floating in the air, I think you're right on with the approach of seeking sync opportunities. If you're interested in seeing if we might be a productive team to make this happen, feel free to reach out: coyotemusic.com/contact In any case, best of luck as you continue with your musical career. You have all of the pieces of the musical-success puzzle before you, and many of them already assembled. Just keep at it. Wiley Koepp, Owner/Editor Coyote Music
Definitely a lot of potential here. Really enjoyed the song. This type of music I can definitely see in film and TV...you should focus on those sync deals. I suggest living in a place like Los Angeles or Nashville where you can find a community of like minded artists to help you grow your network and craftsmanship. Keep it up!
Tiphanie first and foremost thank you for reaching out and submitting. To start out the mix on the record sounds great. Very warm and colorful overall with a great organic vibe. The musicianship within the backing track is great and I love the strings that compliment the other elements nicely. Your performance is quite wonderful and I really like your subtle and vulnerable tone and delivery. I really like the moments when the vox breathe and the instruments have chances to be highlighted. Great story told within the lyrics and the composition feels effortless and natural. I have nothing but praise for you and the record overall just a great piece of music Tiphanie. I’ll be watching and listening for you Tiphanie....
I must admit, I went into listening to this song with skepticism, and I was ready to dislike it, as I have gotten a lot of music from singer-songwriter-types, and it doesn't often stand out. I really did like this though! You sound a lot like Norah Jones on "Come Away With Me," and I think the production was really excellent. Great job with this--clearly you're talented and know what you're doing when it comes to finishing a fully-realized tune that's ready for mass consumption.
YES!! This is how it's done...definitely one of the best submissions I've ever seen – you haven't missed a thing (letter, press release, EPK, social links, and even lyrics!). Okay, now that I've said that, I can focus on appreciating your mesmerizing voice. :) 'Under My Sun' evokes the feeling of filtered sunlight streaming through the window and lighting up a beautiful face. This it what it sounds like to have hope unexpectedly sneak into your day and let you know that – although it's been a rough road – everything's going to be okay. I've recommended a few people who I think could be helpful, and I'll absolutely be sharing across socials and in future mixes/playlists. I've followed you on SC and Spotify, and I noticed you're not yet spinning on Pandora so I'm taking steps to help make that happen. Listening to the rest of your release now (Shadow of You is lovely) and please feel free to reach out anytime to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Wishing you the best for what I'm sure will be your future success! Cheers, Alan
Hello, Thanks for reaching out. This is a lovely relaxed song in my opinion. The voice is nice and with emotions. The sound of instruments are clear and the song is generally well produced. Good job! Added the track to the playlist "Light Songs for Lazy Sundays". Hope it helps you to reach new fans. https://open.spotify.com/user/dashnari/playlist/0uY3TMaKm9EBhHFQSFh9iZ Keep it up! Nariman
Typhanie, Gotta say, I LOVE this song from every angle. The quality of your voice is inviting, assured and yet vulnerable. The hint of breathiness combined with your purity of tone, allows the listener to share your lyric experience as if we are having the same sense of heartbreak and salvation. I especially enjoyed the first chorus lyric, "Just come inside, Let your heart dry, Under my sun..." So much hope. So much comfort. Thankfully, the production was sparse yet generous in its support, knowing just when to allow your voice to color the lyric without embellishment. Love the richness of the cello and how it balances with your vocal. Although you have provided a wealth of insight, I want to know more about you. If you wish, please reach out to me at email@example.com or 805 701 4890 after you check me out. Kindest regards, Jeff
A really gorgeous song. The stripped-back warm instrumentation (that slightly reminds me of Nick Drake) never gets in the way of the beautifully sung vocals. This could work well for sync, as the track has plenty of space in the production and the lyrics have a positive message that could work well with various visuals.
I sincerely feel something special in your music, very intimate as if you said "that's me and I don't want to be another one with an artificial music" so the only thing I can say to you is why being too similar to Norah Jones in the vocal approach, I don't need to listen to another Norah Jones but a talented artist like you! I like so much this song because this creates an obsessive leitmotiv in your head with the phrase "under my sun" and that's why I strongly believe it could be synchronized in some movies or TV series. Loving this kind of arrangements which enrich and complete your beatiful voice in a typical indie folk style as you can listen to Spotify indie folk playlists.
Tiphanie has a beautiful voice and it shines through on this wonderfully-arranged record. It makes me want to check out the full album! In terms of where to pitch it over here in the UK, I can see this going down well with a handful of presenters on Radio 2 (Bob Harris, Jo Whiley to name but two) as well as Maz Tappuni’s show on Radio X.
At first glance, it looks like you are doing everything you should be doing. I like how in your description you mention you are aware certain things will "come with time." Having patience and trusting the process in my opinion, is the most crucial part of this journey you're on. You clearly have talent. No doubt about that. I'd say keep doing what you're doing. Make sure you continue to engage with your community online and keep converting all those first time listeners who encounter you live. The one mistake I see most with artist I work with, is they have trouble with fan acquisition. It is absolutely vital to have an email/social media sign up list at every single live performance. If you already do this, then great! If not, you need to make sure you have a way to remind people who you are, directly. Are you familiar with Jessica Fichot? She's a Los Angeles based French/Chinese-American singer songwriter. You should take a look at the types of gigs she plays and see about doing something similar. Jessica is booked by Marian Liebowitz Artist Management. You should look into that. They might be interested in working with you. It can be hard to give advice when it appears as though you are doing everything you should be. Your album is out, you've got some press coverage, you're touring and hustling to get your name out there... keep at it.
Hey TIPHANIE, really great track here through and through. I think it would be a perfect fit for out Best of Indie post coming up on WeAreTheGuard.com . Also I just added it to our Weekly Chart and Best of Indie playlist on Spotify. : )
Love the way you're putting this together - definitely hear the Norah Jones vibe, but very much a 2018 update on some of her earlier material. Also some Carla Bruni in here, really nice arrangement and really great production. Bravo! This song is definitely sync friendly and I'll keep it in mind for all future opportunities
That was quite lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed listening. It reminds me of a couple of wonderful women I worked with years ago, a mix of A Fine Frenzy and Tristan Prettyman. Your breathy vocals are pretty, the lyrics are smart, the guitar work is impressive, and the strings are a nice addition to the song. I definitely hear some talent and I hope you are gigging as much as possible. The only way to succeed in the industry today is to build a fanbase organically. You don't need radio play or blog posts, you need to sell tickets and merch and play as much as you can. It is a lovely tune and I wish you the best of luck!
Amazingly charming vocals and tune, very much in Norah Jones/Lucy Jones style as described. Send a high quality mp3 to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Fluence Request - Artist Name - Track Title in the subject and I'll include in playlists and shows. Refreshing to see that you've invested in yourself and your music by working to draw press and radio to the track, and I believe that will pay off in the long run (I also run a marketing company that specializes in helping artists get their music heard on the streaming platforms and believe in this path for emerging artists). Best feedback and helpful advice i can think to offer to you would be to just keep going, be consistent, persistent to get your music heard, and invest as much as you can to do so at this time. The agents and managers and synch will follow you once you have bigger engagement with your fans, it will happen as you continue to make great music that wants to be heard. Hope that's helpful, thanks for your submission, let me know if there's ever anything I can do to help!
