Sydney-born singer/songwriter Tamara Hansson had humble beginnings in her native Australia with a diverse range of music influences. She was inspired by and fascinated by her parent’s record collection; From her mum’s Michael Jackson records as well as her Dad’s sex pistols and Johnny Cash LPs. Reveling in melodies from the era of yesteryear was this child-introvert’s bag.

This initial affair with music and lyricism paved the way for Tamara’s musical pilgrimage to the east coast music scene in Australia, seeing her support the likes of Abbe May and Diana Anaid with her songs of love, heartbreak and the human condition. Adventure and a hunger to expand her horizons kept calling, seeing Tamara put down her instruments, pack a suitcase and embark on an international adventure to London.

Now, living and writing songs from her apartment in New York, Tamara has been flitting about the New York music scene after the release of her debut EP, The Apartment Sessions. The songs she shares are intimate and heartfelt – a true reflection of the environment in which they were created.
