...West Coast vocal jazz simply gets no better than Tiffany Austin.
~ Downbeat Magazine
San Francisco Bay Area jazz vocalist Tiffany Austin appeared suddenly on the national scene in 2015 with the release of Nothing But Soul, one of the decade’s most widely hailed debut albums. The fact that she’d just graduated from the UC Berkeley School of Law made her emergence that much more spectacular. With her second album, Unbroken, the Los Angeles native stakes a claim as a formidable songwriter and intrepid musical explorer.
Far more than a collection of songs, Unbroken is a timeless meditation on African-American culture’s extraordinary resilience, with a soul-steeped affirmation that embraces blues and swing, spirituals and R&B, bebop, post-bop, and her own Louisiana Creole heritage. Produced by Grammy Award-winning jazz champion Richard Seidel, the album features a stellar cast of jazz veterans, including pianist Cyrus Chestnut, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Carl Allen.
