Powerhouse Vocalist Tami Neilson To Perform Live At Rockwood Music Hall 8/15Powerhouse Vocalist Tami Neilson To Perform Live At Rockwood Music Hall 8/15
by BWW News Desk - Aug 5, 2019

Canadian-born, New Zealand-based vocalist Tami Neilson is a firecracker.  Her music cannot be singularly categorized for she channels the spirits of Patsy Cline and Sharon Jones and beyond.  She's an artist with a tremendous range: there is her powerful big-ballad voice, her golden-age of country Americana, the heartfelt Gospel, soul-infused R'n'B, Western swing or belting old style Rock 'n' roll.  Tami encompasses them all and is a personality-powered cyclonic force of nature in stylishly retro attire, long lashes and a stacked-high beehive.  The UK's Guardian has asserted that “her powerhouse voice recalls 1950s stars such as Wanda Jackson and Patsy Cline.” (more...)

I started writing songs in college as a way to deal with the loss. In those early years, I only wrote one song explicitly about him, and have struggled to do it again in the following fourteen years.  (more...)
