Biography

About Tiffany Strietelmeier

"My mom likes to tell the story of how when I was only 8 months old one day I got up and ran across the room. I ran before I walked. Even at that age, I always had a get up and go mentality that has stuck with me throughout my life. When I get the itch to do something I never crawl into it - I stand up and run across the room!" ~ Tiffany Strietelmeier

A musical career has been no different for Tiffany Strietelmeier. Her entry into the Chicago music scene has been a mighty quick sprint in fact. After playing guitar for a few months, Tiffany started hitting local open mics and hasn't looked back since. A year and a half later, this singer/songwriter began working with seasoned band members (Dave Piscotti, Tony Piscotti and Dan Boehne) at a common open mic and went on to play at Chicago favorites like Martyrs', Goose Island and Underground Lounge. Tiffany, along with Dave, Tony and Dan create a cosmic energy that is apparent when they collaborate to create their catchy, but unique sound. Each member of the band plays an integral part in producing their music. The mixture of Tiffany's lingering lyrics, Dave's impeccable rhythmic instincts, the magical movement that Tony's lead guitar brings and Dan's bass lines that you can sink your teeth into, makes the band sound is definitely something you want to be breathing in!

Tiffany Strietelmeier debuts with an EP entitled Breathe It In.


Lyrics

Ruled By Fear

Written By: Tiffany Strietelmeier

Let down again, shed my amour, I let you in.
Drugged by a Mickey Finn. Blinded by what could of been.

Watched you walk the walk. Watched you talk the talk.
Watched you leave through the peephole.
Should of been ruled by fear.

Loss of respect, loss of words spill out your mouth.
Wish you could pull them back. It's too late their already out.

Watched you walk the walk. Watched you talk the talk.
Watched you leave through the peephole.
Should of been ruled by fear.

My foolish pride's what keeps me hangin on.
Wish I was the one to let go, but I am not that strong.

Should of been ruled by fear.
Should of been ruled by fear.
Should of been ruled by fear.
Should of been ruled by fear.
