Background

Tiffany Gouché was born September 20, 1988 in Inglewood, California. Gouché comes from a family she has described as musical and Christian. She is the cousin of both Inglewood musicians SiR, and Netflix's Rhythm + Flow inaugural winner D Smoke. Growing up, the family would often perform together singing Gospel and jazz. In 2007, Gouché with her cousins formed a music collective by the name of Woodworks.

Musical career

Gouché garnered attention with her 2015 EP Pillow Talk. She has worked or shared the stage with Masego, Ty Dolla $ign, Solange, Anderson .Paak, Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliot, Iggy Azalea, Usher, JMSN, Pussycat Dolls and Terrace Martin. [5] [4]

Gouché produced the entirety of Lalah Hathaway's 2017 Honestly. [6] [5]

Gouché also collaborated with Terrace Martin on his Grammy-nominated Velvet Portraits.

She is featured on the Little Simz tracks Closer, Just a Dose, and Heart Said. [7] [8]

While LionHeart featured songs sung from a heterosexual perspective (possibly because the mixtape was made up of polished demos of songs written for other artists), Gouché's later releases have fully embraced her lesbian identity.

Personal life

Gouchés mother passed away when she was 14 years old; [3] Gouché identifies as queer and is in a relationship with singer King Sis. [5]
