French songbird and multi-instrumentalist Tiphanie Doucet’s dreamy and compelling vocals will take you on a glorious journey through tender emotions in a folky, euphoric landscape with a sensual french twist. Fans of Norah Jones, Ingrid Michaelson, Feist, Lou Reed, and the latest work of Taylor Swift will have their hearts stolen by Tiphanie’s earnest lyrics and calming, yet majestic take on alternative-tinged folk-pop.
Beginning her career as a talented dancer and actress, graduating from the renowned Ballet Conservatory in Paris, Tiphanie had her first starring role as a child, in the French film Le Bebe d’Elsa and later the lead role in Glee-like French TV Series Chante, giving her popularity in her native France. She also toured professionally with Romeo And Juliet and Hair and was a back-up dancer for David Guetta and Prince, taking her to huge stadiums including the Stade de France. Focusing on her love of music, Doucet learned to play the harp, piano, and guitar and transitioned into a music career, eventually traveling to Los Angeles and New York where she now resides. In 2020 Tiphanie performed on the Canadian Voice where she was praised by the judges for her compelling, beautiful voice and faultless emotional performances before they regretfully lost her to the brutality of the battle rounds.
After the critically acclaimed success of her 2018 LP Under my Sun, produced by Simone Felice and David Baron (Lumineers, Jade Bird), was dubbed as “A richly poignant and pastoral journey that reveals Doucet as a master of the style," by Pop Matters, Doucet is set to release her latest EP Painted Blue, with lead single You & I. Recorded in Catskills New York and finished in her hometown Paris, Doucet's five-track offering takes us on a chimeral and introspective journey and features her adored, seductive vocals on a landscape of songs painted with her soul. An evolution from her previously more acoustic soundscape, Painted Blue introduces an intimate mix of haunting, electronic tones, artfully woven through her adored lullaby magic.
The EP’s first single ‘You & I’ has already amassed over 40,000 listens on Spotify, 8,000 views on YouTube and gained exposure with the likes of Rollingstone France, Pop Matters and She Makes Music. Tiphanie’s ethereal and seductive vocals shine through in the single ‘Painted Blue’. A simple piano ballad in which heartbreak is clearly evident in not only the lyrical content but the delivery. The accompanying music video provides a visual expression of the evocative and sorrowful single, showcasing her exquisite dancing skills.The ‘Painted Blue’ EP defines the evolution of Tiphanie Doucet’s sound from a more traditional acoustic soundscape to a hauntingly atmospheric electronically influenced lullaby. Filled with somber beauty, the ‘Painted Blue’ EP is a hauntingly intimate window into the soul of Tiphanie Doucet.
Tiphanie Doucet infuses every track she releases with an unrelenting emotional vulnerability that is only amplified by her seductive yet sorrowful vocal delivery. The mature and evolved sound of ‘Painted Blue’ is a brave insight into her personal journey through heartbreak on foreign soil, and a perfect example of the talent that this artist possesses.
"You and I" is the musical equivalent of a ying-yang, the elements of rock from the drums
and electric guitar give a gritty hard edge skillfully representative of Tiphanie’s resilient nature
Vasco Dega, Fame Magazine
"Il ne subsiste aucune frontière entre les épreuves émotionnelles de Tiphanie Doucet et nos propres afflictions intérieures à l’écoute du troublant Painted Blue. Au fil d’un dépouillement instrumental propice à la mise en valeur de sa voix fragile et confidente, l’opus se pare de la couleur qu’il dessine, de cette âme couverte d’une pellicule nocturne que l’art pourrait, à lui seul, parvenir à ôter, doucement, en plusieurs étapes. Il y a de la menace et de la profondeur dans ce disque, de la souffrance épidermique et de la chaleur sous-jacente",

"A master of the style,"
Jordan Blum, Pop Matters
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.”
Jonathan Frahm, For Folk's Sake
“Doucet’s hushed invitation to come and be comforted only adds to the feeling of comfort and peace. Her vocal performance is compelling in its attention
to detail–the ends of lines and the wordless sighs that close the song containa lot of emotion without going for the big move.
Stephen Carradini, Independant Clauses
