goatFISH with guests Tiffany Thompson and Jake Lewis
(CD purchases & tips appreciated!)
goatFISH is excited to “come home” after traveling up and down the Mid-Atlantic for most of 2012. They will have with them a couple of friends they met on the road.
Tiffany Thompson: www.tiffanythompsonmusic.com/
Washington D.C. based singer-songwriter Tiffany Thompson’s rich, clear voice brings to life her poetic and personal lyrics, reminding listeners of Adele, Jewel and Norah Jones. Playing both piano and guitar, Tiffany’s dynamic stage presence and storytelling style are winning her fans of all ages.
The DC area is known for its fast-paced, transient lifestyle and cacophonous atmosphere, but Tiffany is imparting something quieter, more personal, and lasting to its character. Prior to becoming a Washington-area resident, Thompson called a lot of places home. The daughter of a minister, she was born in Iowa, but lived in Moscow, Russia in the early 1990’s. She spent her adolescence in Austin, Texas, where she recorded her first record.
Since 2008, DC has been home to Tiffany, and she’s toured throughout the East Coast and Mid-West as a solo artist, fusing together story-telling folk and pop songs. She has recently been the opening act for America at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, and Mindy Smith at Jammin' Java in Vienna, Virginia. On her April 2011 EP, Tiffany has created an acoustic, jazzy collection of colorful pieces about life and love. Her most recent single, a collaboration with LA based producer Chris Franz, demonstrates her maturing talent and sonically points to south towards more of an Alt-Folk sound.
Jake Lewis: www.jakelewismusic.com/
Jake Lewis' love for music came on all at once, in high school. One could find him drumming in a hardcore band, harmonizing in one of several acapella groups, or leading solemn church music. But it was during an 18-month hiatus in Oklahoma that he wrote his first folk song, and never went back to other kinds of music.
He did, however,travel on home to Pennsylvania, where he released his first album
"Location, Location" to an ovation of praise. The Gettysburg Times said of the album that it "comes on like a headwind," while the Public Opinion glorified the "travel theme, and the emotions within it [that] drive through each track." His recently-released EP, "We Can Get Out of Here" boasts a stronger emotional journey than ever before.
Jake plays regularly in Frederick, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., and lives in Lancaster, PA, with his wife. Today he will be joined by his band-mate Macy Keefer, providing lovely harmonies in intensely written songs, reminiscent of The Swell Season.
goatFISH is a Baltimore-based acoustic duo comprised of two international artists merging their own distinct sounds into a genre of East meets West. Sahffi (Neo-Alternative Folk Artist from Maryland) and Mosno (Eclectic Desert Rocker from Sudan) team up to deliver a vibrant acoustic performance, bridging the gap between east and west featuring vocal harmonies, guitars and African percussion.
Avid performers, goatFISH’s recent performances include opening slots for the award-winning band Carbon Leaf on New Year’s Eve, 2012, and Rusted Root in May, 2012, as well as shows spanning the Mid-Atlantic region.
Their sound is larger than their size, mesmerizing audiences in person and around the world online. Their new EP, “The Gift of the Nymph,” is available at goatFISHmusic.bandcamp.com/.
