The Refinery is proud to present Tiffany Crowe, an incredible member of the SIP and Refinery family every Wednesday for an awesome acoustic guitar and singing performance.
Not only on her debut night did Tiffany pack this place up, but she brings a brand of dry humour and hilarity that is often asociated with a visit to the Refinery!!
Do you want some hand crafted songs, jokes and a feel-good senerio? This is the place for you... Tiffany is a brilliant singer and songwriter, plus she's gorgeous.
Every Wednesday, 9:00-11:00p.
Reservations are not required, you'll literally hear the tunes flowing out the front door, and you'll be lured up the stairs into a musical utopia.
About Tiffany Crowe:
I started playing guitar about 2 and a half years ago when I moved to the remote
village of Ucluelet on Vancouver Island. At first I started to play to accompany myself
singing. I have sung since I was little and thought it would be great to put music to it.
My style evolved from singing old folk songs like Bobby McGee and Free
Fallin’, to more contemporary acoustic music such as David Grey, Adel and Sheryl
Crow. From a young age I have written lyrics and songs and have continued to
develop my composition skills over the last three years more seriously. My style now
would probably be best classified as Indie Folk, integrating certain soulfulness to it.
I have been playing gigs around Vancouver and several in Europe this
spring for the last year. I currently have regular gigs each week at The Refinery in
downtown Vancouver, The Terminal Pub in New Westminster, Mahoney’s Pub at UBC
and The Three Lions in Mount Pleasant. While in Europe this spring, I was in Ireland for
a month where I learned a lot about Irish music, structure and culture. I played in several
pubs in Galway, Donegal and Dublin. After my travels in Ireland I left for Portugal where
I played in a bar in Lisbon in the main bar district. I also spent 2 weeks in May in Eastern
Europe where I played at a lounge in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
My goal is to have a CD finished and recorded with all of my own music early
next year so my guitarist and I can go on tour in late spring/early summer. The Canadian
Folk festival scene is our goal.
As of recently, myself and the talented guitarist Bob Graham have formed a
band and are planning on using both of our strong suits to bring about a different type
of acoustic music. It will have Spanish flavors, soulful melodies and lyrics reminiscent
of bluesy New Orleans and a bit of an edge achieved by injecting some humor and
cheekiness to the mix.
Music is my passion, and all I want to do is put forth that passion and try and
give a little bit of it to whomever is watching. I think when you hit the right chord, so to
speak, with an audience member and play a song that really resonates with them; there is
nothing better in the world than that.
