Tiff Jimber Bio
Singer songwriter Tiff Jimber holds nothing back when she plays, smashing out rhythms and dancing on her toes. This is not your average piano girl. Consistently compared to Sara Bareilles and Ben Folds, this lady showcases her diverse jazz and classical training in catchy pop songs conjured up by her influences, Billy Joel, John Mayer, and Nina Simone.
Tiff describes her music as:
TASTES like Jäger spilled on ivory
LOOKS like a purple piano in 6’’ heels
SMELLS like fresh baked cookies
FEELS like a bathtub of aloe vera
MAKES EWOKS sway to the groove
Tiff grew up in sunny San Diego and was forced to take piano lessons. Luckily, this hobby quickly grew into a passion. At age 17 Tiff released her first self-produced album of original songs, Never Takes Too Much. Tiff earned a dual degree in Songwriting and Music Production/Engineering from the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
Tiff released her second full-length album, Burning At Both Ends in May 2009 on Cormac Records. The new album was financed through a fundraising campaign which raised over $10,000.
“The Foundation” was Tiff’s second EP release. Once again this project was crowd funded by Tiff’s loyal fans. Her most recent release is “Little Bird” and can be heard on Spotify, iTunes, and CDbaby.
Tiff was featured on Vh1 in the show Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp. Jimber was chosen by Matt Sorum (Velvet Revolver, Guns N Roses, The Cult) to play keyboards in the band that he mentored-“The Bad Kick.” While performing on national t.v., Tiff had the honor of performing with Marky Ramone (The Ramones), Paul Stanley (KISS), and Sammy Hagar (Van Halen). Jimber has engineered and assisted on many projects, including Phil Collins; Blink 182; The Foo Fighters; Queensrÿche to name a few. She also sang on vocal tracks for movies such as, The Grudge (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Hide and Seek (Robert De Niro), and the Love Happens (Jennifer Anniston). She has opened for Marcy Playground, Anna Nalick, San Diego Symphony, Rebecca Loebe, White Buffalo, Marie Digby, and Meiko.
