Tiffany Apan News
June 2010

*Posting this month's mailing list news as a blog since I was having issues with the Fanbridge account:/ *

Hey everyone,

Summer is here (almost) and there is much going on here.

Well to start things off, we’ll announce the two winners of the first monthly drawings on the Mailing List as well as the Tiffany Apan Official Contest:

The winner of the Mailing List drawing is Wendy Frederick from Virginia and she won a signed copy of “Poet” as well as a signed copy of the “Lunar Sea” compilation CD on which my song “Ghost” was featured.

The winner of the Tiffany Apan Official Contest (where one is in a drawing to win a signed copy of “Poet”) is Brandon Jones of Missouri.

Congrats to both winners and we will be doing both drawings again at the end of this month. There will be a different prize awarded to the Mailing List drawing winner each month, but the Official Contest prize is always a signed album (right now, “Poet”).

Those of you on the mailing list are automatically enrolled in the Mailing List Drawing, but to double your chances of winning (and to guarantee that if you win, your prize will be a signed album), you may sign up for the Official Contest at the link below:

We are also having a discount Summer Sale for the album on CDBaby. Through the month of June, you can buy the physical album “Poet” for $7.00 (with the regular price being $10) and the digital album for $5.00 (with the normal price being set at 8.99). Please note that this is only on CDBaby and the $5.00 digital sale does not apply to iTunes, Napster, and others like them. And for those of you who catch us on the road this summer on the mini tour, the album is half off making it only $5.00 and the free copy of the “Heart Song” demo with any purchase (whether it’s an album or a 0.50 button) applies throughout the 2010 mini tour.

June brings the release of two new songs. The Classical/New Age song I was working on for charity will be released this month via CDBaby Digital Sales. The song is titled “A New Day is Born” and proceeds for the song will benefit the Peace Partners Project. The Peace Partners Project is powered through Indaba Music and there are several musicians and bands involved with this digital compilation. Peace Partners is also partnered with War Child Canada and Amnesty International Canada Francophone. For more information on Peace Partners, please visit their website at http://ping.fm/yVJoJ . The song “A New Day is Born” features myself on vocals and lyrics, Wayne Kinos on composition and mini moog, Ulf on percussions, and Jack Nimersheim as sound engineer. My vocals were recorded by Rowen Poole at StarGlider Studios. All Peace Partners songs are to be released this month and we will let you know the day when “A New Day is Born” and the other songs are available for purchase. You can also watch a clip of my recording session for “A New Day is Born” (and a performance of the song “Free” off of “Poet”) now on my YouTube Channel:

http://ping.fm/0054M

As for the other song being released, the a’capella version of “Lost Little Girl” is now officially released via digital download. We are planning on releasing a different version of the song in the not so distant future, but the original a’capella version is now available. You can currently get the track at my Reverbnation Store.

I’ve also been enjoying some really good chart placement on Reverbnation. We’ve been at number 2 on the Local Alternative charts for a couple weeks and we having been moving up the Global Alternative Charts and the Global All Genres Charts. We’ll see:)

You can buy the track, “Lost Little Girl” as well as some other merchandise, tracks, and ringtones at my reverbnation (and check out my reverbnation profile) store at

It features not only my songs, but songs by some other Musical Goddesses artists as well as some male fronted bands that are musically related such as Duran Duran, The Cure, Petshop Boys, and others.
