Tiffany



Tiffany Renee Darwish was born on October 2, 1971 in Dearborn, Michigan but grew up in Norwalk, California. She is a singer and more recently songwriter of Lebanese, Syrian and Irish heritage. Tiffany began singing around 1975, when she was four years old, and learned the words to the song "Delta Dawn". In 1981, Tiffany debuted with country music singer Jack Reeves at a country and western spot called Narods in Chino, California. She passed a hat along the crowd afterward, and collected $235 in what would be her first career earnings. In 1984, Tiffany was signed to a recording contract by George Tobin who heard a demo tape she recorded. In 1986, Tiffany signed a contract that gave Tobin total control over her career. She recorded her first studio album, and was signed to a MCA contract. Tiffany's eponymous album, Tiffany, was released in 1987. Tiffany went on a nationwide tour titled "The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87". The tour kicked off at the Bergen Mall in Paramus, New Jersey. Soon she was vying with fellow pop star Debbie Gibson for space on the covers of teen magazines, including Tiger Beat, and Teen Beat, as well as on television shows on MTV. In 1988, at the peak of her popularity, Tiffany ended up in the middle of a conflict between her manager George Tobin and her mother and stepfather over control of her career and earnings. This led to a court fight which included an attempt by Tiffany to have herself declared an emancipated minor. This was rejected by the court, but her grandmother (who supported and sided with Tiffany during the trial) became her temporary guardian. These legal battles took a toll on the singer's career. In 1995, Tiffany moved to Nashville to attempt a country music career, but never released any music of that genre until 2011's Rose Tattoo. In 2000, Tiffany released a "comeback" album, The Color of Silence, which received good reviews. Billboard pegged it as "one of the best pop albums of the year" and the year's "biggest surprise". Despite the critical validation, and a record-breaking turnout for her college campus tour, a record deal with a shady, now defunct company and the teen-pop "stigma" attached to her name hindered the album's potential success. She hasn't stopped recording music ever since.

Tiffany (1987)

Tiffany is Tiffany's debut studio album, released on September 15, 1987. Tiffany had begun working with manager/producer George Tobin several years earlier, with some of the tracks recorded as early as when she was 12 years old, in 1984. As a novel means of promoting the album and artist, Tiffany was sent on a "shopping mall tour" which was called "The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87". Tiffany's tour included performances in various malls across the United States, at first to small, indifferent audiences, but by the end to large crowds as her fame grew. The album charted to #1 in the U.S. (4x Platinum discs) and #5 in the U.K. Tiffany spawned the following singles: Danny, her cover of Tommy James & The Shondells hit and what would become her signature hit, I Think We're Alone Now (#1 U.S., #1 U.K.), Could've Been (#1 U.S., #4 U.K.), The Beatles' I Saw Him Standing There (#7 U.S., #8 U.K.), and Feelings of Forever (#50 U.S., #52 U.K.).

Hold an Old Friend's Hand (1988)

Hold an Old Friend's Hand is Tiffany's second studio album, released in November, 1988. In her summer tour, where she was to once again have the New Kids on the Block as her opening act as she did the year before, the sudden popularity of the New Kids caused their roles to be reversed, with Tiffany opening for them, although they were officially billed as co-headliners. The album charted to #17 in the U.S. (Platinum disc) and #56 in the U.K. The following singles were taken from this album: All This Time (#6 U.S., #47 U.K.), Radio Romance (#35 U.S., #13 U.K.), Hold an Old Friend's Hand (#37 U.S. Adult Contemporary charts ), It's the Lover (Not the Love), and Oh Jackie.

New Inside (1990)

New Inside is Tiffany's third studio album, released on October 2, 1990. Tiffany had broken with manager/producer George Tobin soon after her 18th birthday, and signed with manager Dick Scott and producer Maurice Starr. Starr was the producer responsible for putting together the group New Kids on the Block, who had risen to teen popularity by opening for Tiffany in 1988, and who had since eclipsed Tiffany in degree of pop success (she even opened for them in 1989). This album came out on Tiffany's 19th birthday, and she hoped it would revive her faltering career. Unfortunately for Tiffany, New Inside was not a commercial success, and neither the album nor any single released from it made it onto the pop charts, though the title track got a little bit of airplay in some areas and reached some local radio stations' request-based countdowns thanks to the efforts of fans, who were starting to get organized on bulletin board systems and online services. Billboard magazine reviewed the album in a somewhat favorable vein, saying "Teen diva gratefully shrugs off the dated sound of former svengali George Tobin and strikes a harder-edged, pop/funk pose on third album. While her matured, raspy vocals would be better served with less formulaic material than she has here, set offers several sterling moments." The CD booklet and back cover show "A Moment to Rest" as track number 3, but this brief instrumental interlude is actually on the CD as part of the following track, "Tenderly", shown as track 4 on the cover but actually track 3; all subsequent tracks are confusingly shown with numbers one higher than actually displayed by a CD player. The album charted to #17 in Japan. New Inside spawned the following singles: New Inside, Here in My Heart, and Back in the Groove.







Tracklisting:

1-) New Inside.
2-) It's You.
3-) A Moment to Rest/Tenderly.
4-) Never Run My Motor Down.
5-) Here in My Heart.
6-) Tiff's Back.
7-) Our Love.
8-) Life Affair.
9-) Back in the Groove.
10-) There Could Never.

Dreams Never Die (1993)

Dreams Never Die is Tiffany's fourth studio album, released on November 21, 1993. It represented an attempt to return to pop success three years after her last album, and five years after her last commercially successful one. It was released in various countries of Asia, but not in the United States; she had retained a greater degree of popularity in Asia than in the United States. An American release was planned but never released; it was expected to have some changes from the Asian version, because, as Tiffany said at the time, "A lot of the stuff in the Asia market is a little more pop than what I want to do here. I want to break away from the bubble gum thing... My goal is to do not hard rock, but a semi-rock sound." Earlier in 1993, Tiffany (who was by then married to makeup artist Bulmaro "Junior" Garcia and had given birth to her son Elijah) gave a series of performances at the Las Vegas Hilton's casino lounge, which included songs from this album. This album was produced by Tiffany's former manager, George Tobin, with whom she had earlier split, and who had been widely criticized for his exploitative management style, but also widely credited for achieving Tiffany's pop success. However, this business relationship soon soured; according to Tiffany, this happened when she discovered that the songs Tobin had given her to sing on this album were previously used by another Tobin act, PC Quest. Tiffany and Tobin went their separate ways, with Tiffany moving to Nashville and attempting a career as a country singer; this, however, never led to any record releases, and by 2000 she was back to pop music. In 2005, Tobin re-released Dreams Never Die through CD Baby, with previously-unreleased bonus tracks from Tiffany's early studio sessions. The album didn't make it to the charts and the following singles were released: If Love Is Blind and Can't You See.





Tracklisting:

1-) If Love Is Blind.
2-) Kiss You All Over.
3-) Can't You See.
4-) Kiss the Ground.
5-) Dreams Never Die.
6-) That One Blue Candle.
7-) Almost in Love.
8-) Ruthless.
9-) These Arms of Mine.
10-) Sam Loves Joann.
11-) We're the Truth.
12-) Loneliness.

The Color of Silence (2000)

The Color of Silence is Tiffany's fifth studio album, released on November 7, 2000. It represented a "comeback" for Tiffany, being her first studio album released in seven years, and the first released in the United States in ten years. It was released after Tiffany returned to southern California after living in Nashville, Tennessee for several years in an unsuccessful attempt to establish a career in country music; she never released any country albums. Originally, The Color of Silence was going to be released by Modern Records, but when this company ran into business troubles the release was switched to Eureka Records. The Color of Silence received some very favorable reviews. A Billboard front-page article called it "thoughtful, intelligent, and full of grace", and said that it could be considered "Tiffany's equivalent to Alanis Morissette's landmark Jagged Little Pill." However, it did not achieve commercial success to match the critical welcome. It made it onto the shelves of many record stores, but was not heavily promoted; it ended up selling mostly to the established fan base which had stuck with Tiffany over the years, as well as to a few new fans attracted by word of mouth or dance club play of songs from this album. The ballad "If Only" is in memory of Tiffany's bodyguard, Frank D'Amato, who died of cancer at age 34 not long before the album was released. An online download version, and a version released in non-US countries, each had bonus tracks not found on the original U.S. CD release. The album didn't chart and the following singles were released: I'm Not Sleeping and Open My Eyes.





Tracklisting:

1-) Open My Eyes.
2-) I'm Not Sleeping.
3-) Piss U Off.
4-) I Will Not Breakdown.
5-) Keep Walking.
6-) If Only.
7-) Silence.
8-) All the Talking.
9-) Good Enough for Me.
10-) Christening.
11-) Betty.

Dust Off and Dance (2005)

Dust Off and Dance is Tiffany's sixth studio album, released on May 31, 2005. Its style is electronica or dance music, representing a departure from the styles she has used in earlier albums, and of particular interest to dance clubs, where its songs have achieved some success. Tiffany has stated that this album is especially aimed at the gay community, which represents a significant portion of her fan base; she says "I have done the complete gay album." Tiffany did not have a record contract at the time, so this album was released independently and sold online at the CDBaby site, where it was for a while the top-selling CD. It was also made downloadable in the iTunes music store. Tiffany has been performing in various places in the US and the UK, including songs from this album as well as her earlier releases and cover songs. Several tracks from the album ("Ride It", "Na Na Na" and "Fly") have been featured in several episodes of the television series Ugly Betty. The album didn't make it into the charts. However, the album spawned the following singles: Be with U Tonite and Na Na Na.
