Tami Neilson

Singing her heart out along endless roads and stages, from her days as a young girl in Canada touring with the Neilson Family band, opening for the likes of Johnny Cash, to her full blossoming in New Zealand as a formidable talent in her own right, Tami Neilson has won the Tui Award for each of her past four albums. In 2014, Tami was also awarded the APRA Silver Scroll, New Zealand’s most prestigious music award for excellence in songwriting, for her song Walk (Back to Your Arms), as well as Best Female Artist at the National Country Music Awards and APRA’s Best Country Song at the NZ Country Music Awards. The release of her explosive album Dynamite! received rave reviews in MOJO, The Guardian and climbed to #1 on the NZ Music Charts. The 5 Star review in the NZ Herald claimed: “This world-class album is a major statement from an artist at the top of her lyrical and vocal game.”
