Shaped by her experiences in France, Los Angeles, New York, and her recently adopted New Jersey home alike, Doucet’s new work embraces a folksier, jazz-tinged gentleness. Its subtle warmth instantly feels like home, pervading the senses in a way not dissimilar to Norah Jones or Lucy Rose. Yet, in spite of any similarities you may draw between her and other great songwriters, Doucet’s dreamy vocal quality is markedly distinct, especially in how she tenderly incorporates it into her music to tell stories unique to her own outlook and experiences.
"Her vocal performance is compelling in its attention to detail–the ends of lines and the wordless sighs that close the song contain a lot of emotion without going for the big move. If you’re looking for a relaxing summer tune, this is what you’re looking for. Highly recommended."
Stephen Carradini, for Independant Clauses
"Tiphanie Doucet is a French singer-songwriter based in New York, singing and writing elegant, tender and mellow folk songs. Back in August, Doucet released her debut album Under My Sun – produced by Simone Felice and David Baron – but today it is new single and the record’s title-track that we are concerned with. ‘Under my Sun’, a song about growth, self discovery, and maintaining a positive outlook throughout life’s tribulations, filled with calming, undulating instrumentation, it tips and skips along a gentle strum and muffled snare, taking us on a pastoral journey through a world of lovely rich folk pop. Doucet’s dreamy vocal is a revelation both beautifully calm and majestic, it works in perfect harmony with the acoustic driven, melodic and deeply rich folk sounds that reveals Doucet a master of style. Listen to ‘Under my Sun’ below – it is divine."
“We’d gotten to know Tiphanie and her sincerity to her work, is obvious to witness. Her dedication to her craft is unconditional. She’s humble, energetic, honest, and she wants to share her music to greater and greater audiences. And in her humble way, she still is seeking Of herself, and About herself – and we think that contributes profoundly to music making. And in our eyes, that passion is something that we can’t help but DIG about her. Kudos, Tiphanie. Kudos.”
Tiphanie Doucet a une histoire qui ferait un film. Jeune actrice avec Corinne Touzet (oui quand même), bourse US, Danse sur le grand journal, comédie musicale pour finir par se faire repérer dans le métro de New York. Sa vie ressemble à un condensé de la série Un, Dos, très sauf qu’il est par contre fort probable que vous vous souveniez d’elle dans 10 ans. Car Tiphanie a une voix enchanteresse. Elle mélange une guitare sèche folk avec un petit coté soul. C’est une musique à faire tomber les étoiles, en sirotant un petit whisky et en pensant à la vie.

"The French-native’s interpretation brings a universal appeal by being sung half in French, half in English. The lyrics are sung beautifully and with much feeling, but without sacrificing diction in either language. Doucet breathes new life into this timeless classic with an upbeat acoustic guitar, adding a fun and slightly energizing rhythm to a timeless love song."

"It is a truly mesmerizing cover of a song that personally I felt unnecessary to touch but I can definitely enjoy her take on it and say that maybe a cover or two of this gem are welcomed in my shores. So close your eyes with me and let us jump into this familiar yet refreshing soundscape. Enjoy!"
