Quote: "California singer/songwriter Tiffany Petrossi has guts."
By A.J. Van Beest
California singer/songwriter Tiffany Petrossi has guts.
For the last eight years, Petrossi has been following her dream of independently producing and releasing an album. Circles, on which she does it all, from singing to mixing, is the result.
Apparently, it hasn't been an easy row to hoe. Petrossi built her own record label (Esmeralda Records) and wrote three songs that are at least partially about the trials and tribulations of following her dreams. Here's a snip from "The Actress":
You see my hair is curly and sometimes it, sometimes it's straight and yes,
I'm almost thirty and this not, no that is
not too late ...
To be an actress
To be a rock star
To be a doctor
To be a teacher
To be a mother
To be a father
To be a child
To be yourself
Another snippet of you-can-do-it-you-go-girl comes from "Quiet":
But don't go away.
Lead yourself astray.
Cause I know you'll make it.
I know you'll fly.
There's nothing, in front of you,
in front of you.
Other songs on the album are written about her children and her lovers, which makes sense considering Petrossi says the songs on the album are "written from a core feeling, inspiration and/or story ... The album is personal and provides the listener with an honest look into the songwriter's inspirations, thoughts and desires ... "
While Petrossi needs some time alone in the woodshed to make her guitar playing and singing more confident and consistent, she serves as a shining example of guts, belief, and "sticktoittiveness" for any aspiring artist.
