Album Review

At merely 16 years old, Tiffany Evans is showing both talent and musical experience way beyond her years. As a winner of the Star Search Junior Singer competition, Evans has been a featured up-and-comer in the R&B music stream for years with her awe-inducing voice, which boasts power and attention like that of Beyoncé or Kelly Rowland. Until recently, Evans has managed to put out a few cover singles and soundtrack credits to her name, thus keeping her identity from getting lost in the mercurial pop music market. Therefore, when it came time for Evans' full-fledged debut album, her first real shove into the spotlight since Star Search, she needed the best team behind her who would expose her pipes and make her funky and fresh for a younger audience. With Ciara as the executive producer, and with help from the Clutch, Beau Dozier, Rodney Jerkins, and Ne-Yo, Evans has amassed an impressive track list that plays in her favor. In hopes on striking gold with the current pop market, Evans isn't presented as the next Mariah Carey. Rather, she is showcased as a more talented Ciara, toning down on the dance tracks but keeping the beat up the whole way through. With guest appearances by Bow Wow and Ciara herself, Evans keeps the vibe on the album vibrant and sassy, while never truly crossing over to inappropriate. Even on the heavier tracks, Evans never gets lost in the music. Her voice sails over the beats and cuts, thus truly synthesizing the best of both worlds. More than a handful of the tracks show the playfulness of Lil' Mama, the mainstream appeal of Miley Cyrus, and Beyoncé's soulful voice, which propels Evans to a pop sound that is truly refreshing. The music is highly accessible; most of the tracks are prepared for radio airplay, and highlights like "Thinkin' About" and "Favorite Broken Heart" are never short on presenting Evans as not only a vocalist but as an artist with mounds of potential who, if she can keep herself moldable and flexible, could see a long career ahead of her. The lead single (which features Ciara), "Promise Ring," is the most fun track on the album, talking about young love and commitment, but not at a level out of Evans' grasp (rather than discuss engagement, the 16-year-old commits to a promise ring, cleverly showing that Evans isn't trying to be older than she is). The one misstep on the album is the final track, "Angels on Earth," a gospel-influenced Billy Mann track that doesn't keep the tone of the rest of the album, yet allows Evans' voice to shine. This self-titled debut is merely a sampling of the years that could come for Evans, who on her debut album shows musical maturity but keeps it light on juvenile jams, thus setting a new standard for teen pop.

Customer Reviews

Tiffany Evans-Tiffany Evans

15 year old Tiffany Evans finally brings her debut album, after signing with Columbia Records in 2004. With a much more maturity and stronger vocals, she drops her self titled debut. Promise Ring: Ciara has a little intro and that's it, as she let's the youngster do her thing with the vocals. Mr. Collipark has a change of production, a light flowing midtempo that is slightly dance, yet smooth and polished. Vocally it is really nicely sung, throughout the light hearted pop strings and vocals combine for a fun pop hit. 4.5/5 I'm Grown: R&B producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins brings a clap and synth heavy production with a backing piano line. What really makes this track is the hook, where Evans sings with some attitude and confidence. Lyrically it is pretty simple, about being grown, but the attitude and swagger she sings with, truly makes for a fun pop track. More of a dance track than "Promise Ring", Bow Wow drops two verses that are mediocre, typical Bow that should appeal for the ladies. Solid track. 4/5 Impossible: Written by Ne-Yo and produced by Shea Taylor, its another dance ready club track that blends into a midtempo. Vocally Evans continues to shine with her fluid and emotional notes. The track is decent, similar to "I'm Grown", just not as good production wise. 3.5/5 Thinkin About: Soulshock & Karlin deliver a reflective midtempo, that Evans graces with vocals about her past boyfriend. The hook is really the catchy part, as Evans harmonizes very well. The track is a solid midtempo, that is another quality track. 3.5/5 Can't Walk Away: Beau Dozier's thumpy bass clap rhythm is joined by a light melody in the background. But all in all, its mostly Evans getting by on smooth vocals, over the simple melody, its truly a loveable track. A track about not being able to walk away, its strong. 3.5/5 Lay Back & Chill: Similar production with pumping drums that is broken down from its light production and has a beautiful bridge of strings and piano. The track is really breezy, as evident from title and content. Relaxed track that is a nice difference. 4/5 Girl Gone Wild: Unique production by Brian Kidd, it was a little to experimental for me. The rising and falling string line was decent, but the hook didn't cut it for me. It seemed too busy, as the beat itself has enough, the vocals repeat, as well as added instrumentation to the hook. 2.5/5 About A Boy: You can tell this one is aimed at radio success, a love story that has no happy ending. Seasoned R&B producer Eric Hudson brings a more stripped down "With You" with acoustic guitar and keyboard effects, matched with bumping percussion. The track is radio ready and should have success if exposed, its vocally smooth and topic wise can relate to many teens. 4/5 Favorite Broken Heart: Dozier is back with a ballad like production with piano and bass guitar melody that is about the ending of a relationship. The track is nicely crafted, its solid and fits its purpose, pop dealing with love and relationships that shines vocally. It isn't as much of a standout, but more of a track that fits the mood of the album. 3.5/5 Again: Decent production for a midtempo, its smooth during the verses and more upbeat at the hook. The track is only decent, as the hook isn't nearly as effective as the others, but is still enjoyable. The track is forgiveable considering the rest of the quality records. 3/5 Angels On Earth: The best ballad on the album and a fitting ender to the album, Evans sings an uplifting and somewhat spiritual track. Billy Mann strips the production all down and provides a light piano melody with a smooth rolling bassline and percussion. Evans vocals show why she is so talented, as the vocals are smooth and begin to build to the hook, where she is joined by a gospel choir. The concept is truly moving and many will like this track, especially when she belts it out towards the end. A great ending. 4.5/5 Young Tiffany Evans deliver a beautiful album. I have to say that I was truly impressed by Evans vocals, after "Promise Ring" I was satisfied that she could sing, but what was her style? How did she convert that to other tracks? Ciara executive produced the project and there is no doubt about it, as Evans is in many ways similar to Ciara, just with a little more vocal depth and range. Many of the midtempos through the beginning, bring slight comparisons to peer Ciara, but Evans goes into her own, when she starts belting out notes, harmonizing and exploring octaves that give possibility to the likes of Mariah Carey. Lead single "Promise Ring" is a fun poppy dance track that is still blessed with nice vocals, as "I'm Grown" features a confident teen and swagger that Evans shows only on a a couple tracks, but its "Lay Back & Chill"'s relaxed feel that makes it stand out, as well as "About A Boy" that seems totally radio ready for stardom. The rest of the midtempos are solid, the only misstep being the overly busy "Girl Gone Wild" but that rests more on the production and vocal setup, than Evans vocals. "Angels On Earth" brings some spiritual soul with Evans belting out notes similar to R&B greats. Its evident that Evans has skill, no doubt, and if she continues to develop, she could turn into something special. Overall this is a very enjoyable pop album that is danceable and features the typical teen topics of love and relationships, but what seperates it from a mere disney channel star is the vocal talent that Evans possess and the quality productions that match her well. Rating 8.5 out of 10

Is this the same little girl?

Wow, is this the same little girl that won Star Search a few years back? The show that was hosted by Arsenio Hall? I knew she would someday put out a super album, and this is definitely it. Keep up the good work, Tiff. Your old Star Search fans haven't forgotten you.

Tiffany Evans Is The Next Big Thing

She has amazing vocals and has a powerful attitude. "I'm Grown" is a hit and you will see what I am talking about when you buy the song.
