Much like her admired predecessors, Tiffany Michael AKA NVS comes on like an arena rocker with sonic vocal chords, unrestrained personality, crafty dance moves, and stunning “just like a model” good looks. All this and she’s just getting started! An ingenious songwriter, exciting vocal performer and gifted actor (Triple Threat), NVS combines her passion for music and creative expression into a perfect storm of talent with pop/dance encapsulating her preferred sound.
NVS inherits a taste for classic rock from her parents, having grown up listening to such artists as Led Zeppelin, Steppenwolf, CCR and America. Her personal favorite and most prominent influence is Prince. Other genres of music that inspire NVS are Dance, World, Latin and Soul. She states, “Music has no boundaries, it is a passport to places unseen, traveling with souls in common arriving at a creative space that leaves you breathless and amazed.”
A 5'7 blonde beauty, NVS was born and raised in Canada in the city of Kitchener as the eldest of two girls. Introduced to music at an early age, she reached the stage for the first time at age two, performing in local festivals and continued perfecting her skills with lessons in ballet and jazz dance. A past time turned into a passion. A songbird was being formed! As she grew older, NVS began entertaining audiences with solo performances in musical theater productions ranging from drama to classic musical renditions. Steadily perfecting her craft, NVS studied at Eastwood Collegiate Institute Performing Arts High School and was featured in a variety of TV commercials in the Toronto metropolitan area. At age eighteen Tiffany moved to New York City to attend the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute where she studied acting. Her musical journey took flight. While working on the 90s R&B platinum group Blackstreets music video in New York, NVS met famed producer, Sprague Williams of Virginia Beach, Va. She was immediately added to the notable list of entertainers Sprague had produced including Blackstreet, Usher and Whitney Houston.
Shortly thereafter, NVS relocated to Virginia Beach. The Virginia music scene was hot and afforded valuable connections including an opportunity to sing background for R&B sensation Joe on his chart topping Better Days album produced by the now, internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum, Grammy winning sensations The Neptunes, Chad Hugo and Pharrel Williams. NVS continued honing her skills gigging at local venues and NBA games, including a memorable performance of the National Anthem for a sold-out Washington Wizards game that earned a standing ovation.
Encouraged and proactive, NVS relocated to Los Angeles to break into the film industry and continues to work hard on her music career. In the past couple of years she wrote and recorded the theme song for a film entitled, The Ecology of Love that was featured at the Sundance Film Festival. The film starred Pharrel Williams (of the Neptunes) and Donia Ramirez. The same song is featured in the DVD release of the TV show Beverly Hills 90210. While in LA she has recorded with producer Donnie Scantz in Los Angeles, who received a Grammy nomination for his record "Yeah" with Usher, as well as David “DQ” Quiñones of The Writing Camp who has written/produced songs for Beyonce, Brandy and the Pussycat Dolls. NVS has a raw talent for writing songs, and is a member of ASCAP.
NVS’s notable acting accomplishments include a nationally syndicated AT&T commercial, an International "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas" commercial. She had a recurring role on the UPN family sitcom, One On One as well. Most recently, Panasonic chose her single “Right Side” for their International 3D Plasma TV promotional video. Panasonic shot their first 3D music video showcasing NVS, and debuted it at CES in Las Vegas, the worlds largest International electronic Trade Show.
When NVS is not behind the camera, she is dazzling crowds as the burlesque performer “Honey Bare” with the Los Angeles Burlesque troupe Rag Dolls.
NVS is currently working on her Pop/Dance album, and is recording with up and coming singer/songwriter sensation Nick Hagelin and Producer/Engineer JNEW.
NVS - her confidence and perseverance are evident, her drive unmistakable, voice-angelic, look and charisma-authentic, and her sound-unequivocal.
