A Spain-born New Jersey native, Tiffany Fred, now known as Tiffany Red, grew up filling pages of notebooks with poetry. Her love for writing led to a pursuit of a music career. In 2007, at the young age of 20, Tiffany moved to Los Angeles, CA. It did not take long for the industry to notice her songwriting talent. In 2008 Tiffany signed a publishing deal with The Underdogs and Universal Publishing Music Group. Her first song as a professional songwriter was for Jennifer Hudson's self-titled album, which landed Tiffany her first Grammy. Since then, she has written hits for artists like Zendaya, Jason Derulo, NCT, and Cassie, to name a few. Tiffany has also written music for television and film, most recently for Fox's hit television shows Empire and Star.
After a decade of writing the lyrics that put other artists' names in the lights, Tiffany has begun using her gifts to manifest her dreams of being an artist. She debuted her first EP, titled "Drake," in early 2018, a live-instrument-driven jazzy ode to some of her favs from Drakes catalog. Red's second project, titled "Rollin' With the Homies," was released summer of 2018 and featured collaborations on every song on the project with artists including Eric Bellinger and Mickey Shiloh. Since then, she has released 6 EPs, "Dear Hollywood" being the most recent.
In July 2020, Red created The 100 Percenters Foundation after going viral for speaking out about penning Kpop hit "Boss" by NCT and how poorly she was paid for it. Red decided to create an organization that advocated for people like her.
The 100 Percenters is a non-profit organization that advocates for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and marginalized music creatives. Their goal is for underrepresented groups to have equitable access to opportunities, revenue streams, and education in the music industry.
