Tiphanie Doucet is a French artist based in New York. Her emotionally disarming performances deceive in their simplicity, often times consisting of nothing more than her voice and a guitar, occasionally accompanied by violinist. Yet, they nevertheless arrest audiences through their quiet, brooding intensity, holding a vulnerability that’s offset by a wintry, gallic allure.. Tiphanie Doucet got her start early on in the music and entertainment world. Harp and Ballet were part of her two passions since a very early age. A starring role in the film Le bébé d’Elsa, and later in the Glee-like TV series "Chante", gave her popularity in her native France, and the unlikely foundations for what would be a very eclectic musical trajectory. After leaving France, Doucet decided to gamble it all and start fresh in America. Doucet recently released her debut album “Under My Sun”, a collection of rustic, yet polished folk numbers produced by David Baron and Simone Felice, who have worked with the likes of Lumineers and Jade Bird. Though Doucet’s influences are prevalent throughout the album, nodding to the likes of Norah Jones, Ingrid Michaelson and Feist, the work is without a doubt a testament to the uniqueness and originality of her voice. The sound is amplified by Felice and Baron's production, which never feels intrusive, but serves as the perfect complement to the singer’s overpowering voice, interjecting only at key moments of emotional revelation.
