Tamara is a self-taught singer, songwriter and musician.  She started writing songs when she was in her later teen years.  The first song she ever wrote is titled “For Your Glory” and many more songs followed.  Tamara has written at least 40 songs and finds her inspiration thru personal experiences.

Tamara wants be balanced in life especially where music is concerned. Tamara has a bigger dream, a bigger vision that simply can’t be put into one box. Tamara has been referred to as half church girl and half Mariah Carey. She loves to sing Country, Blues, Jazz, R&B, Soul Gospel… a bit of all the greats. Tamara is a unique vocalist not willing to be branded as a generic singer, rather dips her toes into the best of most genres and styles. She is willing to try new styles and loves to learn from those around her. Tamara has learned most of what she does by listening, watching and then jumping right in to try, try and try again. Tamara’s favorite style to sing is jazz as it allows her to stretch her vocal chords and be creative and “fancy” if you will.

Gospel will always be the heart of where it all began for her music but she is not limited to just gospel.  There are too many amazing songs to be sung and so many messages to be told thru music and song.  Tamara is always writing down phrases or hooks as they come to her, and tries to always be doing something musical, whether that be writing a song, doing a live feed on facebook, or a jam session or rehearsal in the studio all the way to performing concerts, gigs or even singing at your local open mic at a coffee shop.  Tamara is currently working on another album and has partnered with Matt Graham of Matthew Graham Productions to release this album hopefully sometime in 2021.

Debut Album Page Title

Inspired by the simple blessings in life that we often take for granted, my first album was written to convey gratitude and appreciation for not only the grand things but also the smaller gifts that we find in our daily lives. Laughing, Loving, and yes, even crying are blessings given from above. Being alive and interacting with this beautiful planet through our five senses. Breathing and moving through this world, we are able to hear, see and feel all of the wonderous things around us: life’s little blessings. I truly hope that this album brings you joy. Blessings has an RnB vibe meant to uplift the listener and remind you that every day we breathe, is a day to be grateful.
