Around five years or so ago, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone’s name on the Fayetteville Flyer calendar more often than singer/songwriter/one-woman-band, Tiffany Christopher.
One of the hardest-working musicians in town, Tiffany was a stalwart of the local music scene, and a regular NAMA award nominee for best local singer/songwriter in Fayetteville.
Christopher has spent a lot of the last several years on the road, applying that same work ethic and garnering exposure all over the country recently.
She’ll be back in town this week, however, for her first local show in a while when she performs at the new Southern Food Company at around 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7.
We got in touch with her to find out what she’s been up to these last few years, and she was nice enough to answer some questions for us.
What have you been listening to lately?
Tiffany Christopher: The Black Lillies, Chris Stapleton, Nahko & Medicine for the People, Amy Winehouse
It’s been a while since you’ve performed in Fayetteville. What have you been up to the last few years?
I’ve been touring a lot in the Southwest. I moved up to Denver a little under a year ago, and I’m about to start a new side project called the Hunting Party. We are focusing on a lot of content online and trying to bridge the connection between the fans and the art. Exciting things on the rise, and we are striving to honor our energy and music. Less shows. More connection.
How has your music changed and evolved since you played in Fayetteville last?
I’ve been touring around as a one woman band for the last 4 years. It’s really helped me express the arrangements in my spirit. I’ve always been a genre-bender but recently my new material has a specific sound. I suppose I’ve found “my sound.” Alt-Americana/Folk-Pop
Is there anything about Fayetteville that you have really missed since you moved?
I’ll tell you what I don’t miss. Tiggers & Chicks. ;) I miss the community. I miss the autumn colors. It’s strange how life keeps rolling & before you know it you are looking back & can’t believe how far the journey has taken you.
Oh- & the Greenhouse Grille’s Shitake Fries. Please tell me they are still on the menu??!
Tell us a bit about your show coming up at Southern Food Co.
The show at Southern Food Company was organized by Todd Martin. He’s always been a big fan of my music & kept asking me to come play his new restaurant. So- here I come! I’ll be playing my original tunes and few covers. If we can fit the whole rig I’ll be playing a kick drum, guitar, hi hat, ukulele & my pedal board/looper
