Tiffany Ann Pollack was born and raised in the musical mecca of New Orleans, where she began singing as soon as she could talk.  Although never receiving formal training, countless hours of her childhood and teens were spent at her parents’ old 70’s organ and later the out-of-tune piano they bought for her writing songs by ear and singing very loudly.  Her family’s annoyance never discouraged her from sharing the songs in her heart. Tiffany had her first opportunity to perform professionally when neighbor Russell Batiste learned that she could sing and invited her to sing backup with his band Russell Batiste & Friends..  After several years, Tiffany formed her own band called Beaucoup Crasseux with some of the members of Russell’s band..  In addition, Pollack begin singing in many other bands including Ph Fred’s The Round Pegs and The Consortium of Genius.  Beaucoup Crasseux ultimately fizzled, and Pollack entered mortuary school. In the ensuing years, she was married, had children and focused on her mortuary career.  She continued singing with Ph Fred, The Consortium of Genius, an 80’s metal cover band called High Voltage and two jazz bands, The New Orleans Steamcog Orchestra and then later the Dapper Dandies. After the birth of her third child, Tiffany left the mortuary business to focus on music full-time. Tiffany developed a strong passion for jazz and eventually formed her own jazz band, called Tiffany Pollack and Co.
