TIFFANI WOOD is most well known as one fifth of Australia’s highest selling girl band BARDOT.
BARDOT burst onto the scene in the year 2000 from one of Australia’s very first reality singing shows called POPSTARS. From the moment the band was formed Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia, the UK and India went crazy for them. Their self titled album “BARDOT” and single “Poison” went straight to the top of the ARIA charts both sitting at number 1 at the same time (only 10 other Australian acts have ever achieved this).
After Bardot folded in 2002, Tiffani went on as a solo artist, signed to Warner Music, and released “What R U waiting 4” which sat at #27 on the ARIA charts. The song writing bug became too strong for Tiffani so she went out on her own and co wrote her first solo album “Bite your tongue” and a very successful children’s lullaby album ” Acoustic Dreams – Lullabies for babies” that she dedicated to her daughter Lillian.
“I’m so excited to bring my Popstar Kidz workshop dream to life. To see amazing up and coming talent and watching it develop into fully fledged Popstarz in just 4 days is inspiring. To see the smiles on the kids faces during the school holidays and how excited they all are to create, live and breathe their very own girl/boy band or solo Popstar, just like I did when I was in Bardot, brings such a positive energy to everyones experience and we can’t wait to see what Popstar magic each workshop brings”
