TAMZENE is a singer, writer and multi-instrumentalist from the coastal town of Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands. Having started learning violin and piano aged eight, at 14 she picked up guitar and embarked on writing her own material. Her unique mix of Jamaican and Irish heritage encouraged an immersion in Soul, Folk, R&B and Reggae from an early age, with her initial influences coming from hearing Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone played around her home- before progressing to contemporary artists like Alicia Keys, Birdy and Matt Corby. Spotted busking on the streets of Inverness by bookers from Scotland’s Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, TAMZENE has lots yet to share.
