In her 18 years, Tiger Darrow's already accomplished far more than most other high school seniors can dream. The Booker T. Washington High School senior's already got a pretty substantial IMDB page thanks to her burgeoning acting career, and, last summer, Darrow, who also boasts some pretty fine indie-pop chops, even had a couple of scores pop up Robert Rodriguez's Machete -- in three different scenes, even (two featuring Jessica Alba, and another featuring Cheech Marin). Pretty decent filler for your college applications, no doubt.
But it's just the start, really: This month, Darrow released her debut full-length album, Hello, an effort that finds the young singer-songwriter working closely with Cary Piece of Jackopiece. Together, the two co-wrote the album -- and to impressive ends, showcasing a fairly brooding aesthetic mature well beyond Darrow's years.
That much is especially evident on the album's lead single, "Thinkin' Bout You," a song which also features some writing assistance from Oklahoma singer-songwriter Katie Mariah. It's also evident in the music video (also co-produced by Pierce), for which Darrow's acting chops surely also came in handy. Check the video out after the jump.
