A live album, PEEP, was released from that performance as well, and is available as a free download on their site www.phinneyestate.com.
On her debut album, Tamara brought her unique voice to the Pacific Northwest and spins songs of bruised egos and the vicious cycles of foolish love--like little snapshots of late night bedroom fights or awkward silence in a telephone call. With a soft voice and style, Tamara takes a hard look at both the bitter and the sweet view of love.
Tamara’s first, self-titled CD was produced by national recording artist and award-winning songwriter Dennis Magee Fallon (www.dennisfallon.com) at the world famous London Bridge Studios in Seattle (www.londonbridgestudio.com) -- the same studio that defined the Seattle sound of the 1990’s, where platinum albums by Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Blind Melon, and Soundgarden were all recorded.
The debut album wom Tamara fans across the Northwest where she is constantly touring and performing as a solo artist, with Phinney Esate, and with the Seattle Rock Orchestra, as well as recognition in various National and International venues including a feature in the Alternative and Indie front page of Windows Media Guide, opening performance at the Moore Theatre for the 2010 national tour of Hanson, station list on Pandora.com, and inclusion of her song “Black Rain” as the theme for the Ashley Michael Karitis documentary “Free World.” A world traveler (including formative stops in Africa, Japan, Ireland, and South & Central America), her international experiences have given her inspiration and perspective that gives her songwriting a fresh take on her favorite songwriting subjects: boys, bedrooms, and big questions.
