Tammy is a critically acclaimed Anglo-Canadian singer played on radio stations across the globe who appears regularly headlining in top venues all over the world and collaborating with the likes of Michael Bublé, Jamie Cullum, Bobby McFerrin and Randy Bachman. Her latest CD “Where I Need To Be”, features her excellent original music and co-written pieces with Grammy Award-winning producer Terry Britten and pianist Tom Cawley. Her song “Everyone But Me”, is included on an album produced by Michael Bublé. Tammy’s highly anticipated forthcoming album extends her musical vision around one of Portugal’s finest and most celebrated Poets, Fernando Pessoa.
For the Festival Tammy turns her attention to vocal great Julie London noted for her languid demeanour and sensual voice which connoisseurs describe as husky, breathy and haunting. In days gone by “a voice for a smoke-filled room” was often the imagery. London was able to convey the ecstatic heights of love and passion as well as mine the depths of sadness and isolation in every note and sentiment.
