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" by NZ National Radio.
Singing her heart out along endless roads and stages, from her days as a young girl in Canada touring with the Neilson Family band, opening for the likes of Johnny Cash, to her full blossoming in New Zealand as a formidable talent in her own right, Tami Neilson has won the Tui Award for each of her past four albums.
In the past year Tami has performed at numerous international festivals in New Zealand, Australia and North America, headlined six national tours, opened for both Emmylou Harris at the Vector Arena and Pokey LaFarge.
Last year Tami has released the critically acclaimed and co-produced Sassafrass, nominated for “Album of the Year” at the NZ Music Awards with glowing reviews in Rolling Stone Country, American Songwriter, Pop Matters and No Depression.
With a rigorous international touring schedule, Tami has played sold out shows across North America, New Zealand, Australia and Europe. Now this force to be reckoned with will visit Dashville.
