San Jose resident Tiffany Petrossi received the honor of being named Runner Up, by the Song of the Year (http://www.songoftheyear.com) songwriting contest. Song of the Year is an international songwriting contest supporting VH-1’s Save the Music Foundation. The Song of the Year judges are some of the biggest names in music including many Grammy Award winners.
Song of the Year is excited to recognize Tiffany Petrossi for her exceptional songwriting ability for the song The Actress. Tiffany competed against songwriters from all over the world for this honor. When asked what inspired the song Tiffany commented that, “finding success in the face of defeat, gave her the impetus to write this motivational song.” She added, “music is a place where past, present and future reflections can be voiced.”
Currently, Tiffany is concentrating on her music career while, “hoping to get her music heard and have it reach larger audiences.” Tiffany released her debut album, ‘Circles’ on March 26th, 2004. Self-produced through her record label, Esmeralda Records, the album consists of twelve tracks written from a core feeling, inspiration or story. Tiffany recorded, mixed, wrote and performed all songs on the album. She is an example of an independent artist, that is motivated to promote herself, and as a result songs from her album ‘Circles’ have reached an international audience.
You can find her performing currently in Northern California venues and her songs, like ‘The Actress’ are beginning to get noticed and played on radio stations in the U.S. and abroad. A goal for Tiffany would be to continue to write and release good, honest work that people can also relate to. “To have my music resonate with others is the greatest reward, I could hope for.”
