Tamzene: Women Make Music
EP Recording, Tour Support and Marketing
With the support of Women Make Music, Tamzene will record and release a new EP and embark on her first headline UK tour. The support will allow Tamzene to bring in external PR support to help build her profile over the life of the campaign.
Tamzene is a singer, writer and multi-instrumentalist from the coastal town of Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands. Having started learning violin aged eight, at 14 she further extended her musical dexterity by picking up guitar and embarked on writing her own material.
Her unique mix of Jamaican and Irish heritage encouraged an immersion in Soul, Funk, R&B and Reggae from an early age, with her initial influences coming from hearing the Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone songs played around her home- before progressing to contemporary artists like Birdy, Solange and James Bay.
Tamzene’s previous releases have picked up support from a number of Spotify curated playlists including, New Music Friday, Sweet Soul Sunday, Feelgood Pop, Chilled Pop Hits and New Pop Revolution. She was also picked by Festival Republic and the PRS Foundation to participate in the pioneering Rebalance programme. Having spent the last year honing her craft and working with a number of co-writers and producers, Tamzene has been showcasing a bolder, highly individualistic edge, whilst retaining the soulful influences, stunning vocal talent and diversity of range which has started to get industry and audiences engaged across the UK and several wider global territories.
