“ Amazing voice and lyrics! Ms. Apan changes genres from song to song, from New Age to Nu Metal, all the while retaining a keen poetic edge and evoking magical landscapes. Well worth your time!”
— Armageddon Music Review

The Birthrite Series is an epic journey into the vast unknown, plunging deep into the dark crevices of the mind, begging the question of what sanity really is and if the insane truly are. Are we really shown the whole truth of what surrounds us or is it an illusion?
It also tells of deep-rooted love, planted centuries ago and a story of family, forgiveness, and redemption.
“ Descent (Birthrite I) is wonderful novel with intricate writing and definitely approachable by anyone who enjoys attaching themselves to intense characters. I really had a hard time putting this book down … This book would appeal to folks who like romance, dark passion, fantasy, mysticism, history, genealogy and overall good writing.”
— Chris, Amazon Review
Fans are describing her music and stories as a much welcome escape into another world. Drawing inspiration from the works of fantasy writers like JRR Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Diana Gabaldon, and George R.R. Martin, along with historical events, mythology, ancient texts, and lore, Tiffany aims to take you into a world of bonfires, castles, dragons, and of course, time travel!
From ethereal gothic ballads to folk-tales inspired by the Celts and Viking sea adventures, symphonic world instrumentation and operatic blast beats that invoke passion and mystery, her voice and style has been described as being truly unique.
Her music and stories have received critical acclaim with her “Scarborough Fair” music video won first place in the Open Genre Music Video category at the International Indie Gathering Film Festival in Cleveland, OH. Some songs have been selected and featured in several independent films.
In addition to music and writing, she is active in living history and reenactment communities, bringing history education to the public along with allowing her to indulge her affinity and obsession with costuming and period clothing! Such endeavors also led to her performing vocals and percussion with the 18th century Celtic Folk group, Wayward Companions and appearing as a guest vocalist with the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society Orchestra.
When she’s not time traveling, she is also dedicated to holistic health and fitness.
As a side project, she runs the online webzine and podcast at the Bonfires, Castles, and Time Travel. Currently, she is working on a new studio album heavily inspired by events and key figures from Tudor England.
“The classically trained lady provides us twelve songs worthy of about fifty minutes of classical, ambient, gothic, Celtic folk, wave rock music…vampires with an open-mind, metalheads with a broken heart and (omnivore) music fans must really have a listen to this original mix of songs and styles by this very talented lady.”

“She has classical vocal training, and use that skill to good effect throughout the album; with restrained operatic vocals giving life to mostly slow-paced dark and gothic tunes high on atmosphere and dramatic as well as theatrical flair.” – Olav M. Bjornsen, Progressive Ears
“Your music is beautiful and soothing. After a long hard day I listen to you…” Chad, Facebook Review
