Guest Artists

Tiffany Jones, vocalist


Called an “A-list performer” (​Philadelphia City Paper​) and a “rising star” (​Philadelphia Daily News)​ , Philadelphia jazz-soul vocalist and performer Tiffany Jones has been lauded for the “soul and sincerity behind her voice.”

The color of her voice and the melodies of her original compositions are drenched in soul with jazz inflections, while her honest, heartfelt lyrics touch listeners with a message of love, joy, peace and healing.

Jones moved to Philadelphia to attend Temple University, earning a bachelor's degree in music with a concentration in jazz vocal performance. She received a master's degree in music education from the University of the Arts. For 6 years, Jones served as a K-12 music teacher at a Charter school in SouthWest Philadelphia. She currently serves on the voice faculty of the University of the Arts.

Tiffany has performed in venues across Philadelphia, and has worked with local artists such as Dexter Wansel, Donald Robinson, Tim Warfield, and Orrin Evans. She is a featured vocalist with The Philly POPS Orchestra and The Philly POPS Big Band.

In April 2011, Jones appeared in the ​PBS​ special “Malt Shop Memories” as a background vocalist for Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell and other artists at Caesar’s Casino. She performed background vocals on tour for gospel singer and musician Jeff Majors and on his album “Sacred 4 You” (2002), which reached #13 on ​Billboard​’s Top Gospel Albums chart and #67 onBillboard​’s R&B Albums chart for 2002. Her original composition, “I Come to Thee” is featured on the album “Kaleidoscope” (2007) by jazz trumpeter Sean Jones and was sung by gospel artist Kim Burrell.

In April 2016, Jones released her EP entitled ​Him.​ This record marks her second recording; her debut album, entitled “Reincarnation,” was released in 2002.
