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.

Her mother passed away when she was 14 years old; [2] Gouché identifies as queer. [4]

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. [4] [3]

Gouché produced the entirety of Lalah Hathaway's 2017 Honestly. [5] [4]

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. [6] [7]

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.
