New Audio: Tiphanie Doucet Shares a Synth Pop cover of Julien Doré

Tiphanie Doucet is a French-born singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who currently splits her time between New York and Los Angeles. Doucet can trace her love of performing to her childhood: She was a child actor, who appeared on French TV. After earning a merit scholarship, the French-born, Los Angeles-based artist, relocated to New York, where she studied acting and musical theater at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA).

Her music career started in earnest after appearing on The Voice Canada, where she gained a wide fanbase. Her full-length debut 2018’s Simon Felice and David Baron-produced Under My Sun and 2020’s Painted Blue were released to critical applause. The five-song Painted Blue EP showcased Doucet’s sultry vocal and sophisticated imagery and featured “You and I,” which received praise from Rolling Stone France.

The French-born artist has always played covers throughout her career, and 2020’s Re-Imagined EP feature covers that she re-arranged — and the EP’s material manages to reveal the breadth of her influences. The following year, she released a virtually unrecognizable David Baron-produced cover of Lenny Kravitz‘s “It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over,” which was recorded at Sun Mountain Studio.

Last year, the French artist embraced the harp and started producing her own material, including “Joe le Taxi” and “Une Love Song,” which featured bilingual lyrics paired with a pop-folk-meets-electro pop sound.

Doucet’s latest single sees her turning Julien Doré‘s dreamy M83-meets-Air-like “Paris-Seychelles” into a glistening synth-driven bop that retains the yearning of the original while being a perfect vehicle for the French artist’s sultry and coquettish delivery.

“Paris-Seychelles” will appear on Doucet’s forthcoming second collection of re-imaging covers Re-Imagined 2 EP.
