Typh Barrow: a mix of pop, soul and folk
With a gold record for her debut album, Raw, released at the end of 2018 and for which she wrote all the lyrics and music, singer Typh Barrow has definitely made a remarkable entry into the world of show business. Tiffany Baworowski (her real name), the Belgian singer, author, composer and pianist, was born in Brussels on 10 May 1987. Her style is eclectic; there are hints of pop and soul, with notes of jazz and blues.
Her talent became obvious at an early age, and she wrote her first songs at the age of twelve. She arrived in the music world very early, starting to play the piano at five, studying music theory at eight and beginning singing lessons at 14. For the past 12 years, she has been working with producer François Leboutte, who is also her manager, agent, the boss of her label (Doo Wap) and publisher (Feelings Publishing).
Her debut single Your Turn, which was released at the end of 2012, was enthusiastically received by Belgian radio stations and became one of the most widely played tracks in French-speaking Belgium in 2013. In 2014, she released Time, a double EP containing a set of original songs she wrote and composed herself. They were recorded in Paris, London and New York with big names in international music.
Typh Barrow took her time making her debut album, but Raw was a huge success when it was released in 2018. It won unanimous praise from the press, and quickly became number 1 in sales and then a gold record.
Between 2018 and 2019, she performed a series of sold-out concerts in some of the most prestigious venues, including the Forum de Liège, the Cirque Royal in Brussels and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Charleroi. Further proof of her popularity came when she was chosen as a coach on the 2019 "The Voice" Belgium.
On 17 January 2019, she released her second album, Aloha, to unanimous critical acclaim. "Aloha", the title of the song that gave the album its name, is also the story of a meeting between two of today's most beautiful voices, Gulaan, who no longer performs in New Caledonia, and Typh Barrow. "It's a song about the beauty of difference, about accepting that flaws and differences are what make a person beautiful," explains the author, composer and performer. "And Aloha means I welcome you just the way you are."
Her unique, husky voice will soon transcend our borders.
