‘You and I’ is part of Doucet’s ‘Painted Blue’, an introspective five-track offering featuring her seductive vocals and sophisticated imagery. After the critically acclaimed success of her 2018 LP ‘Under my Sun’, ‘Painted Blue’ an evolution from her previously more acoustic tonality, introduces an intimate mix of haunting, electronic tones, artfully woven through her adored lullaby magic.
The lead track ‘You and I’ cleverly evokes passion, sensuality, love without consequences. “I wrote ‘You and I’ with the context of a fascinatingly short but strong heartbreak. I noticed how blue I was following the relationship and that he was happy with someone else, the realization was hard to take.” Tiphanie explained, “So many people can relate to the feeling of longing the intensity of relationships. In the track, I sing like I am on a mission that can’t fail. My wistful tones, full of romance that may not always get reciprocated, and the personal nature of the piece will see listeners foraging through their personal experiences of heartbreak.”
Following her career as an actress (starring in the French Glee-like TV show Chante) and as a dancer (for David Guetta and Prince) Doucet decided to focus on her love of music, learning to play the harp, piano, and guitar. Eventually traveling to Los Angeles and New York where she now resides, Tiphanie recently performed on the Canadian Voice where she was praised by the judges for her compelling, beautiful voice and faultless emotional performances.
Fans of Norah Jones, Ingrid Michaelson, Feist, Lou Reed, and the latest work of Taylor Swift will have their hearts stolen by Tiphanie’s earnest lyrics and calming, yet majestic take on alternative-tinged folk-pop.
