Rapping and singing love-torn lyrics over jazz-tinged guitars and hip-hop beats on "Ms. Used" the first track on Tiffany Miranda's debut album, I Speak Music Miranda has a genuine knack for blending R&B, jazz, and hip-hop into something refreshingly different. Now living in Miami, Miranda was born in New York, where she attempted to make a musical name for herself while working part-time jobs as a waitress and a receptionist. Eventually she opened her own studio, Red Room Productions, with which she wrote, engineered, and produced I Speak Music. Though only twenty years old, Miranda has mastered the art of production as well as her own vocal abilities in a way that has allowed her to fuse musical genres she has always found interesting.
Tiffany Miranda performs at 8:15 and 10:15 p.m.
