VAIL — Musician Tiffany Christopher is in the midst of a six-week tour through the Rocky Mountains, promoting her upcoming record “Tremendous Heart,” and she’ll make a stop at Route 6 in Eagle-Vail on Monday. Local musician Briony K. Hunn will accompany Christopher for this show, with keyboards, guitar and backup vocals.
“I have always been a sweet sentimentalist at heart, lucky to have grown up listening to the ’60s and ’70s music that my parents loved, shaping my personal tastes,” Hunn said. “I love drawing on that era when I play, as well as songs from the music I grew up with in the ’90s and 2000s, and the new music of today.”
Not just a gig
Christopher and Hunn’s show is based around vocals, kick drum, high hat, guitar, ukulele, piano, loops and other effects, all of which Christopher creates in a one-woman-band format. She stands. She sits down. She stands on top of the kick drum while taking a lead guitar solo. She head bangs while playing the drums. She raps. It’s not just a gig — it’s a performance.
“A lot of the songs I play with Tiffany are my originals, which are shaped, of course, by everything I like in music,” Hunn said. “Folk is certainly the best genre I could describe myself fitting into. It’s an awesome balance playing with Tiffany, who is well-versed in all styles from jazz to hard rock.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
“On this tour with TC, I have been singing backup vocals, and she backs me up on my songs, adding drums and harmonies. We have a really fun vibe together and it’s truly spectacular making music with her.”
Christopher’s unique pop, folk and rock sound has earned her accolades from media outlets, venue owners and, most importantly, crowds of new, quickly converted fans. The soon-to-be supporters are often surprised it’s only one person and not a three-piece band. Her high-energy live performances have made fans of people across the country.
