In celebration of Women's History Month singer-songwriter Tiff Jimber will perform at Luther College Thursday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Marty's CyberCafé in the Dahl Centennial Union.
Tickets are $10, available at the door the night of the show.
Jimber's performance features songs by music legends Madonna and Ella Fitzgerald and pop superstars Adele and Katy Perry, as well as Jimber's original songs.
Consistently compared to Sara Barielles and Ben Folds, Jimber showcases her diverse jazz and classical training in catchy pop songs inspired by Billy Joel, John Mayer, Nina Simone and Adele.
Jimber grew up in San Diego where at age 17 she released her first self-produced album of original songs.
She graduated from the Berklee College of Music with degrees in music production and engineering, and songwriting.
Since moving to Los Angeles Jimber has engineered and assisted on many projects and played in several bands. Jimber has worked with Phil Collins, Blink 182, The Foo Fighters and Queensrÿche, and opened for several bands, including Marcy Playground.
Jimber has performed on the television show "Rock-N- Roll Fantasy Camp" where she was mentored by Matt Sorum, drummer for Guns N' Roses. Along with the advice and guidance from Sorum she had the opportunity to perform with artists including Sammy Hagar of Van Halen, Paul Stanley of KISS, Marky Ramone of The Ramones and Phil Collen of Def Leppard.
Women's History Month was initiated by the Education Task Force of Sonomoa County in 1978 with a week-long celebration. By 1986, 14 states declared March as Women's History Month. This state-by-state action was used to lobby Congress to declare the entire month of March as National Women's History Month in 1987.
Jimber's performance at Luther is sponsored by SAC Spotlight.
