Tiffany Carlen is an emerging Independent Country Artist from Texas, a talented Singer/Songwriter by destiny who credits success to her intense drive and more than 10 years climbing the corporate ladder. She’s held her own on many stages over the years in local bands, opry houses and churches across the states; and after years of writing and building a family, Tiffany is hitting a passion filled musical brick road with the force of a tornado.
This sultry country singer was born and raised in New Jersey with her 6 siblings and parents, home to the beginning of her musical journey. The family singer/songwriter roots run deep and span across the south and Midwest states, lead by strong, independent and God fearing women throughout the generations, including her Grandma Katie Dunn Carlen, one of the Dunn Sisters Trio who played back up for the likes of Roy Rogers. “I credit my go getter attitude to the tough but loving and very talented women who surrounded me while growing up. My mom didn’t take no for an answer and stood up for herself and what she believed was right.” says Tiffany.
But don’t let her “tough girl” side distract from Tiffany’s seductive voice. It is uniquely defined with a hint of Texas, laced with her Tennessee heritage and digs deep from a passion for blues. Her style is influenced by a range of favorites from classic rock to the oldies, to today's crooners, all reflected in both her voice and her writing. “I have an old soul with a modern day attitude. I believe in love, respect and Jesus, and also saying what I really think. I’m a woman with feelings, desires, family and hormones and I’m taking the opportunity to be a voice for every woman out there who is ready to be fearless at any stage of life,” she declares. Her voice mirrors the range of emotions expressed in her songs, at moments evincing the twang of Patsy Cline, the strength of Shania Twain, and the sexy vibes of Stevie Nicks.
Tiffany recently finished tracking a collection for her debut album, appropriately titled “It’s a Girl Thing”. A soft release of the title song in 2012 hit #1 on a local chart but has now been re-recorded for the album and will be the first single to drop later this year. It’s a Girl Thing is an engaging, fun, upbeat anthem with everything “girly” women take seriously: fashion, family, friendship, wine and getting what they want! Tiffany says “Women have mastered getting what they want for centuries simply by going after it with a little innovation and overcoming of fears. And at the same time, inside every woman is this girl who likes to dress up, dance, have some fun and be a part of a sisterhood. We are moms, wives, sisters, entrepreneurs, the money spenders and bottom line decision makers of every household.”
The album offers a collection of honest, sexy, loving and playful songs, all penned by Tiffany over the past 10 years, with songs like “Vacation” a wife’s sarcastic yet funny response to a husband who dared complain after returning from an eight day fishing trip, a true story Tiffany laughingly admits. Her songs are relatable, thoughtful and no doubt will be driving women down the road in every hometown!
“If Calamity Jane could sing like Patsy Cline, with the fashion sense of Cocoa Channel, and the business
acumen of Oprah Winfrey, that would be Tiffany rolled up in one big, sexy mess!”
