Public Bookings Presents Tami Neilson “Chickaboom” Album Launch Tour May 2020
No one forgets the first time they saw Tami Neilson. She can hush a room with an original song that channels the hurting spirit of Patsy Cline or the sensuality of Peggy Lee, or bring the audience to its feet on a rockabilly raver. She’s an artist with real range, whose powerful voice can take on big ballads, golden-age country, heartfelt Gospel, soul-infused R&B, Western swing, even old-style rock ‘n’ roll.
Tami encompasses them all and is a personality-powered cyclonic force of nature in stylishly retro attire, long lashes and a stacked-high beehive. Following festival appearances at Port Fairy, Blues on Broadbeach, Dashville Skyline and Out On The Weekend in 2018, Tami returns with her brother and collaborator Jay Neilson and drummer Tom Broome to Australia in 2020 to celebrate the launch of her ‘CHICKABOOM!’ album with dates in Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast.
Best Female Artist, Best Country Album, Best Country Song, an APRA Silver Scroll (songwriting) award and Album of the Year nominations. Her Dynamite! album of 2014 received rave reviews in Britain’s MOJO and the Guardian named it a Top 10 Best Country Music Album.
