“ONE OF NYC’s LITTLE TREASURES” (continued)
SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO host, Deepak Chopra and Tamara, recently spent one chilly winter morning live on the air. While her appearance was only supposed to include the performance of one song, Deepak invited Tamara to stay longer, perform more songs from her upcoming record and discuss The Beatles, George Harrison and the creative process. Due to its popularity, this show reran countless times over several months.
Called “A QUIET AND OBSERVANT SOUL” and “ONE OF THE BEST SONGWRITERS IN TOWN”, Tamara’s live shows are rapidly growing in popularity, due to her solid songwriting and stage presence. Not to mention her band, which always consists of NYCs finest players. Tamara’s audiences have described their experience at her shows: “Great energy! I was so wound up I couldn’t fall sleep!”, “Definitely fun...time flew by!”, “...songs are great and the band was spot on!”
Tamara’s BACKGROUND in music extends all the way back to the first few years of her life and continued with formal and informal musical training on various instruments and in various schools (New York City’s High School of Performing Arts -- the “Fame” school) and Boston’s Berklee College of Music. Since then, Tamara’s musical education has been practical experience in and around New York City, the Northeast and Nashville, TN, as a performing singer/songwriter, co-writer, session singer, songwriting consulant, and music educator. She can be found performing in festivals such as Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Philadelphia Songwriters Festival, Cornstock (Tamara was sponsored by Jolly Time Popcorn for this one!), The Songwriters Hall of Fame, Durango Songwriters Expo, SESAC’s Writer’s on the Storm, NYC’s Chic Singer Night and many more.
LATELY, Tamara Hey’s musical presence extends beyond the her adult audiences. This past year, she discovered a new and adoring fans when she founded “Bouncing Baby Music”. Armed only with her guitar, voice and a few toys, Tamara performs original and popular music for gatherings of New York City’s “power moms” with their babies and toddlers. She refers to this experience as “the best day job ever”.
