“Tami Neilson is one of the most exciting artists in country music today. She’s bringing to country music what acts like Amy Winehouse and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings have brought to R&B. " - Jonathan Keefe, Country Universe, USA 

Canadian born but now proudly Auckland-based country & soul darling TAMI NEILSON is heading to Australia in August with critically acclaimed new album DON’T BE AFRAID.

Neilson’s star is soaring high, with electrifying recent performances at Womad NZ, Auckland City Limits, Nashville Americana Fest, and NZ Music Awards, as well as supporting blues star Colin James on his recent Canadian tour.

Starting her music career as a young girl, Neilson spent her youth touring Canada with relatives in The Neilson Family band, opening for an array of country royalty including the formidable Johnny Cash.

More recently blossoming in New Zealand as a formidable talent in her own right, Tami Neilson has just finished a national tour with long-time collaborators Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams.

Don’t Be Afraid was released in Tami’s adopted country, last year and debuted at the top of the charts, and the song “The First Man,” was shortlisted for the Silver Scroll, the most prestigious music award in New Zealand which Tami won in 2015 for her song “Walk (Back To Your Arms).”

A 5 Star review of Don’t Be Afraid in the NZ Herald claimed “This world-class album is a major statement from an artist at the top of her lyrical and vocal game.”

The singers songwriter’s mix of rollicking country, blues and soul, offset by heartbreaking balladry, is guaranteed to delight.

“With a soulful voice straight from the golden age of country and rockabilly music, Tami Neilson has been described as “A red-hot honky-tonker, somewhere between Patsy Cline and Wanda Jackson with perhaps just a little bit of Peggy Lee sophistication.”  Nick Bollinger, NZ National Radio
