Early on for Tiffany, singing was a joy. Growing up in the 80’s, she spent hours with her vinyl records memorizing lyrics to Madonna and Cyndi Lauper. In her 20’s, she battled severe stage fright (you would never know it now). As much as she wanted to perform, public singing was terrifying. Singing karaoke, in time, built some confidence but things didn't really change until her husband answered an ad for a country – rock band. He joined them on drums and learned they wanted a female lead. He suggested Tiffany.
That band would eventually become Silver Lining. It has been a true joy to overcome her stage fright and perform live with ease and enthusiasm. In addition to Silver Lining, Tiffany has performed multiple leads in community theatre and recorded vocals for 3 original musicals. She began writing original music with Silver Lining in 2022 and has found her passion as a lyricist. Tiffany’s striking stage presence, fiery red hair, and unmistakable vocals make every Silver Lining show unforgettable!
Lewis began banging on pots and pans at the age of 2 and the rest is history, as they say. Lewis’ passion for music has propelled him into learning many instruments in addition to drums, such as guitar, piano, sax, and trombone. While in his high school marching band, Lewis learned the importance of tempo, volume, and time signature. After serving our country in the Army, Lewis began coaching the drum line at his alma mater.
He motivated his students, taught them music theory, and wrote much of their material. In 2013 Lewis answered an ad for a country – rock band in need of a drummer. Silver Lining was created and has evolved over the last 9+ years. The satisfaction and joy Silver Lining brought, pushed Lewis to learn a new skill in singing lead vocals while playing drums. Today, Lewis’ continued passion contributes to the success of the band and inspires him to write original songs with his wife, Silver Lining's lead, Tiffany.

Born in East Los Angeles, Rudy Lopez used playing live music and strong family values to stay on the straight and narrow. Influenced by the Beatles, Rudy picked up the bass guitar in the late 60s and learned to play by ear before understanding any fundamentals of reading music. It was the bass guitar that helped Rudy go from being extremely shy to becoming an "out-front" style performer.
His musical journey went from the hard rock and “top 40” genres to smooth jazz, latin, big band, and later classic rock where for 25+ years he played with the band “THIEF Classic Rock Band” before discovering country music.
It was the country music of the 90s that brought out Rudy’s interest in country and that hasn't changed. He loved real, fun and energetic, danceable tunes made by such artists as Brooks & Dunn, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Vince Gill, Bonnie Raitt, Clint Black and Rascal Flatts, to name a few. Rudy is a straight up bass player and adds excellent vocal harmonies. He presently uses a 5-string Warwick Thumb Bass Guitar and still has in his arsenal, a Fender 50th Anniversary 4-string P-Bass and a classic 1970s 4-string Fender Musicmaster Bass.
