I’m Tamzene. I’m a singer, songwriter, emotional overthinker and blind optimist from the Highlands of Scotland.
WHO ARE YOU?
I sing and play piano, guitar (average busker level) and violin (was good when I was 12). I write songs about my life, other people’s lives, things and people that I care about and things that I haven’t figured out yet. I sometimes get to play them live for beautiful audiences and thoroughly enjoy spending most of my days in studios with creative and talented humans.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
Nothing makes me feel more like myself! I feel truly alive and at home when writing and performing. It’s my way of expressing myself and reaching people and hopefully allowing them to feel something or identify with a part of it too. I also do it because I’m not much good at anything else. Terrible cook, terrible at languages, the list goes on.
WHY DO YOU DO IT?
What isn’t happening?!?! I am about to put out an EP called ‘details’ which I’m super excited about. It has my recent songs Called You Out, Cut Me Out Your Photos and Dance With You Again on it plus three more brand new ones. It’s just the beginning but feels like a big, special moment. Then I get to play it at loads of super cool festivals this summer such as Latitude, Cross The Tracks, Boardmasters and Sziget, followed by my very FIRST ever headline tour in November!
WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW?
The hot topic for me has to be representation within the UK music industry. There is certainly a very long way to go, but there’s been some really exciting and positive forward motion in terms of female representation and diversity. It’s beautiful to see walls kicked down all over, and I want to be a part of making this industry even better, brighter and more of an even playing field for everyone.
