Fresh off the back of Americana Fest in Nashville, Tami Neilson is back in Aotearoa, and will soon pick up the last leg touring her new album; Kingmaker.

The album centres on themes of female empowerment, feminism, equality, and exposes the toxic structure of the music industry.

Tami Neilson has won almost every music award possible, and has just been nominated for seven awards at the Aotearoa Music Awards, and is one of five finalists for the coveted Silver Scroll Award.

Tami Neilson comes from good country stock; her music career started in her homeland of Canada, where she toured with the Neilson Family band from the age of 12, opening for Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn and singing with Queen of Country music Kitty Wells.
