Born in California, she loved theater and drama as a kid. She wanted to be an actress, but had a passion for songwriting as well. When she found YouTube, she recognized her opportunity to be seen and heard.
“I actually wanted to be an actress at first,” Tiffany said. “I took acting classes. I loved singing but I loved songwriting more. That’s my real passion and that’s what came along with singing. I started pursuing that when I found YouTube.”
She posted her first YouTube video in 2008, when she was only 15 years old. Tiffany started garnering fans on YouTube after releasing covers of famous songs by Taylor Swift, P!nk, and Iggy Azalea, as well as original compositions.
However, she believes she had a competitive advantage in garnering YouTube fans. “I feel like when I first started in 2008, it was a lot easier to be heard and found. There were a lot less people doing it. I post[ed] my first cover and after a couple of weeks, I had 300 views. It’s insane to think how gradually with time, there’s been this momentum. It’s a lot harder to be noticed if you’re just starting out and just trying to make it.”
After 8 years of sharing covers, collaborations, and original songs, she has over 2.8 million subscribers. That is no small feat, considering she’s an unsigned performer. Even though she is just 23 years old, she has put her heart and soul into her music, and it is paying off. She is well on her way to an amazing career.
