Scottish singer, writer and multi-instrumentalist, Tamzene releases new stripped back EP, Intro.

Following the release of the recent stripped back tracks ‘Unreachable’ and ‘Best of Me’, Tamzene‘s releases her ‘Intro’ EP with the addition of two further piano based offerings, ‘Don’t Say a Word’ and ‘You’re with Somebody Now – Acoustic’.

The tracks are in stark contrast to the R&B and synth infused ‘Soldier’ and “You’re With Somebody Now’ released late 2019/early 2020.  Intro gives centre stage to Tamzene’s soulful and emotive vocals as well as highlighting her personal and profound lyrics.  This is the sound of an artist looking back before taking the next creative turn.

The EP tracks were recorded late in 2019 and were initially due to be released to coincide with a series of live shows earlier this year, which were canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Tamzene hails 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.
