Music of Tami Neilson with Marty Duda

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 23 September 2015

Tami Neilson grew up with music in her native Canada. At age twelve she was touring North America with her family act The Neilsons. Eventually New Zealand beckoned and Tami has been embraced by the fertile Americana scene of Lyttelton, working with the likes of Marlon Williams, Delaney Davidson and Ben Woolley. Blessed with an incredible voice that can handle any style of music, the "hot rockin' lady of country, soul and rockabilly", scored a Silver Scroll Award for her song 'Walk (Back To Your Arms)' from her breakthrough 2014 album Dynamite! Now. Tami is back with her latest album Don't Be Afraid. The title track is the last song her father composed before passing away earlier this year. The album is released later this week and Tami is part of The Church Tour featuring Barry Saunders, Marlon Williams and Delaney Davidson.
