Tiffany Austin at Feinstein's at The Nikko
Join the Tiffany Austin Quintet in celebrating Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone with Bessie, Billie and Nina: Celebrating the Queens of Swing. Vocalist Tiffany Austin is one of the fastest rising jazz stars in Northern California. Her refreshingly original style, described as precise, intelligent and soulful, with arrangements varying from classic swing to contemporary R&B has attracted the attention of innovative Bay Area bandleaders including bassist Marcus Shelby and tenor saxophonist Howard Wiley.
Austin performed regularly in Los Angeles before spending a year in England and five and a half years in Tokyo before earning a law degree at UC Berkeley. In June of 2015, Tiffany released her debut recording Nothing But Soul in which she re-imagines compositions by the great American songwriter Hoagy Carmichael. In October, 2015 Ms. Austin began a yearlong Friends of Chamber Music residency at the Presidio during which she will continue the development of her Creole Music Project inspired by recordings from the 1920s and 30s by Louisiana Creole accordionist Amede Ardoin whose innovative style had a profound impact on the Cajun and Zydeco musical styles.
