"SASSAFRASS!" brings Tami Neilson to Europe


Tami Neilson blends her power vocals and slyly subversive lyrics with a gorgeous vintage sound on the stylish new album SASSAFRASS! The award-winning New Zealand singer delivers a dynamic set of twangy rock ’n’ soul music which she is over with to promote throughout Europe starting in August and going through till mid-September. 

Tami Neilson won’t be staying New Zealand’s secret for much longer. For the past decade, the Canadian-born, New Zealand-based singer/songwriter has been the queen of her adopted homeland’s country and roots music scenes. She picked up handful of Best Country Album awards at the New Zealand Music Awards and won the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll for excellence in songwriting.

With her new album, SASSAFRASS!, Neilson takes a giant step that should only bring her more widespread acclaim. On this 11-track effort, she places a heavier emphasis on soul music while not abandoning her country and rockabilly roots. Neilson conjures up a wonderfully retro style that sounds like it could be a lost gem from the late ’50s or early ’60s; however, beneath the classic veneer are frank, highly relevant lyrics.
