PAINTED BLUE PRESS RELEASE
Globe trotting French songbird and multi-instrumentalist Tiphanie Doucet reveals her ethereal new EP and single each titled, ‘Painted Blue’.
After dropping the EP’s first single ‘You & I’, a number of weeks ago, the track has already amassed over 20,000 listens on Spotify, 8,000 views on YouTube and gained exposure with the likes of Rollingstone France, Pop Matters and She Makes Music. The artist is now ready to release ‘Painted Blue’, produced and co-written by Simone Felice and David Baron, famous for their work with The Luminners, Bat for Lashes and Diana Demuth.
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. Writing from a place of inner turmoil, of pain, longing and loss, the music itself sits in contrast with the shadows cast by the personal lyrical content: “I am painting a landscape of songs that will describe how ripped, disconsolate, and destroyed my soul is after a man with a blue eye left me for “somebody new” with whom he is ‘Lying on (his blue) couch’”
Tiphanie started her career as a dancer and actress having graduated from the renowned Ballet Conservatory in Paris, before going on to perform on the Canadian Voice being praised for her faultlessly emotional performances. Influenced by artists such as Bon Iver, Joni Mitchell, and Norah Jones, Tiphanie has amassed a strong body of singles since her 2017 debut.
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",

Tiphanie Doucet's "You and I" Is an Exercise in Pastoral Poignancy (premiere).
she sings with a compelling blend of poignant yearning and sovereign strength—complemented by lovely harmonies, of course—that evokes Norah Jones, Feist, and Eisley. Pop Matters- Jordan Blum - Music video PREMIERE -
"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
“French songbird Tiphanie Doucet has completely stolen our hearts with her latest single “Under My Sun.”
