Influenced by the angsty riot grrrl rock scene of the early '90s, Tiffany Page is a Strat-wielding singer/songwriter who's been described as the new Chrissie Hynde. Born in Crawley, Sussex in 1986, Page moved to Zimbabwe with her family as a toddler before returning to the U.K. at age six, settling in Islington, North London. In her teens, she passed an audition for the English National Opera and appeared in the West End production of Carmen, but deterred by the fact she wasn't allowed to wear makeup or jewelery, she abandoned her classical music career ambitions. Instead, she picked up the guitar at 14, and inspired by the likes of Hole, Babes in Toyland, and L7, began writing her own songs. While studying at the London School of Fashion, she was encouraged by Joe Sumner, son of Sting, to perform her material at open-mike nights, and after working on tracks with the Blockheads' Chaz Jankel, she was signed to Mercury Records in 2009. Following support slots with the Noisettes, Juliette Lewis, and childhood idols Hole, she released her debut single, "Walk Away Slow," with the album of the same name expected to follow in mid-2011. ~ Jon O'Brien
