Crafting music that makes even ewoks dance, Tiff Jimber is California’s newest pop sensation!
Welcome to 52 Songs Of Happiness, a collection of unique music from around the world brought to you by Coca-Cola. Each of these amazing new acts has crafted a one-off song for Coca-Cola based around a treasured location, as well as a Placelist with the music that makes that place so special.
Next up is singer/songwriter Tiff Jimber, a surf-loving resident of California who spends as much time down the beach as possible. And when she’s not soaking up the rays, she’s writing some of the most exciting new music you’ll hear. We met her to discuss her songs and her choice of Placelist.

My Placelist has a lot of laid-back beach songs in it, which mostly remind me of middle school in San Diego. I spent a lot of my time there growing up, and the beach is still where I spent most of my free hours.
