Her thought provoking songs and memorable voice have made her a Sierra Nevada favorite. Born in 1964 she started writing songs when she was just 7 yrs old. Deeply influenced by artists such as Carol King, Gladys Knight and John Denver, she writes of life experiences and things that move the spirit. After playing guitar all of her life and performing at private functions, she began performing professionally in 2004. Since then, and hundreds of shows later (including the American River Music Festival and Mountain Folk Festival annually), her sultry sound has filled the air of dozens of Northern California small venues and independent radio. Tamra released a limited privately produced CD in 2009 (Friday Afternoon), a 7 song EP CD (Ravenwood Studios, Stones Of Time) in September of 2016 and the release of her long anticipated 2nd full length CD is expected by New Year’s 2016. Recently Tamra has paired up with blues virtuoso and recording artist Little John Chrisley adding his extraordinary accompaniment to the show and recorded music.
Tamra's style has been described as soulful Americana, in blues, folk and light rock.
Commanding a jaw dropping 4-octave range voice, Tamra sings with a uniquely strong smoky vibrato, that gives a nod to Janice Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, and Nora Jones. With engaging subject, light humor, and true-life stories often woven throughout her compositions, her music will take you to another place for as long as you get to listen.
Little John Chrisley was born in Rochester, New York in 1968. Blues Greats like Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy would come to Chrisley's family house for barbecue. John's musical tastes were pretty average for his age until he saw his first Muddy Waters Concert. Soon after seeing Muddy perform John picked up the harmonica, and within two months he was playing with Robert Cray, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells when Junior pulled Little John up on stage to "Blow some Harp" at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco. During his high school years, Chrisley became the focus of a national campaign by Hohner Harmonicas who distributed large color endorsement posters of him. As his career developed, he made numerous television appearances and MTV. Legends such as Willie Nelson and Carl Perkins continued to call Little John to the stage and by 1991 he had made guest appearances with many of our country's most prestigious artists. In addition, John has performed on numerous records including Pat Traver's "Blue Tracks", "L.A. Blues Authority", and "Cream of the Crop". He has been featured on releases such as "George Lynch's "Sacred Crow" and "Mr. Big's Bump Ahead". Little John has enjoyed an extensive songwriting career beginning with his first recording contract at the age of thirteen. At eighteen he signed to A & M records and did multiple session appearances. Besides playing harmonica, saxophone, guitar, bass,and drums, Little John learned to play keyboards and did a national tour opening for Richard Marx. Little John has recently released his first solo CD, eponymously titled album, featuring Aynsley Dunbar on drums.
