Teen singer/songwriter from South Dakota Tiffany Johnson Chats With TMI About Her New Single “He’s Not You”
Hey Tiffany, So excited to be chatting with you! What inspired you to pursue your career in music?
I’ve been playing music ever since I can remember! I’ve always been inspired by singer/songwriters such as Taylor Swift, Kelsea Ballerini, Ed Sheeran, Kacey Musgraves etc. I fell in love with the idea of being able to tell a story through the melodies and lyrics of a song. I started performing on stages when I was 8 years old and I knew that was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Did you have a break out song that started things for you?
I wrote a song called Here’s To Forgetting You and that was the first song that really took off for me!
What type of music are you leaning towards for your music career?
I love a diverse range of music, but I tend to write songs that have more of a country/pop feel.
You just released your new single “He’s Not You”! How excited are you to finally have this song out in the world?
I’m super excited that this song is finally out! He’s Not You was one of my favorite songs to record! Everyone was bopping their heads when we were laying down tracks and dancing around in the studio. It was tons of fun!
How did this song come about?
I had been playing around with the idea of a song called “He’s Not You” for awhile. I had the phrase He’s Not You saved in my notes and one day the song just fell into place. I remember I was talking to my friend about how sometimes someone can be doing everything perfectly right, but things just aren’t clicking, there just isn’t the same spark that you’ve had with somebody else.
What’s up next for you? A Full Album? A tour maybe?
I have been writing and recording a ton lately! I have more songs on the way! 🙂
What do you want your relationship to be like with your supporters?
I honestly think we are all going through the same things and I hope to connect with what’s going on in their lives! I love chatting with listeners and getting to know who they are as people. I think it’s really cool to form a community of people who are all there for each other!
What is the best thing about your career in music?
Wow! There are so many awesome things. I absolutely love meeting other musicians and getting to see the art they make. I love performing my original songs, but even more than that I love it when I am able to make a difference on the life of someone who was in the crowd. That is truly why I do music!
What is the biggest struggle you’ve faced as an artist?
A big struggle of being an artist is trying to figure out and compete in the world of streaming. Writing and recording songs has always come naturally to me, but it’s hard to breakthrough all the noise in today’s day and age.
Any last things you want to tell your supporters?
YOU MEAN EVERYTHING!!!❤️❤️
