On stage, Tiffany Sweet's gospel roots blend with her jazz, blues, and rock background to astonish audiences in both small and large venues. She's got the presence of Taylor Swift, the energy of Tina Turner and the kind of soulful range and power that prompts listeners to make comments like, "that voice should be let out from the mountain top," and "Sweet has a voice that makes you stop and listen for a good long time."
Sweet began singing and writing songs at the age of five. At the age of six, she stunned family and friends with her powerful delivery of Amazing Grace. Born and raised in North Central Florida, she often laid in bed listening to her father play classical music on the piano. Her family noticed her musical abilities when they realized she could play the same music she'd heard the night before, without any instruction from her dad. At twelve years old, she taught herself to play acoustic and bass guitar to accompany her singing.
Church singing taught Sweet the positive impact inspirational music could have on underprivileged children and teens and is an experience that still motivates her today. She writes soulful songs that speak about the emotions we all experience and sings them with a power, poise, and grace that awes audiences no matter what the venue.
Among her professional performances, Sweet has played the Atlanta Music Festival (2001), opened for "Audience of One" in Toccoa Falls, Georgia, and sung in the 20-person backup choir for gospel great Kirk Franklin in Orlando, Florida. Her college years included performing in coffee shops and small clubs in a duo, earning extra money for school. Also while in college, Sweet signed her first musician's contract when she was chosen as lead vocalist for 'Carpenter Tools' that was to tour Australia for twelve months.
She and her bands have performed at events like the Blue Crab Festival, the Crescent City Christian Music Festival and restaurants and taverns throughout southern Georgia and northeast Florida.
