"Jason and Tiff" is the new rendering of local veteran musician, Jason Henderson Amare, and newcomer-to-the-scene, Tiffany Mericle, both formerly of the award-winning band HEMA. Moving away from their rock-and-roll past, the two envisioned compositions with a balance of storytelling lyricism, musical poetry, and unexpected dynamics. Their first EP, Faul, is due out in autumn, 2012. How "Jason and Tiff" Came to Be: Jason has been playing the Portland music scene off and on for nearly a decade, both in bands and as a singer/songwriter. Most recently, he was front-man to the band HEMA. After attending several shows, Tiffany soon learned many of the songs and began singing harmonies while in the audience. Soon, Tiffany was asked to come on stage and sing along; she eventually became the fifth member of the band, playing keyboard and singing backup vocals. When HEMA went on an indefinite hiatus, Jason and Tiff decided to keep singing together, and the new project was born.
