Just 18 months after releasing her internationally acclaimed album
“Dynamite!”, The prolific Tami Neilson returns with “Don't Be
Afraid”.


WINNER - “Best Country Album 2015”

SILVER SCROLL 2014 - “Walk (Back to Your Arms)”

#1 - NZ Album & iTunes country charts

“Top Ten Country Music Albums of 2014” in The Guardian.


The beginnings of this album were birthed in 1972 by a young Ron Neilson,
who recorded a demo of the first single, “Lonely” outside a hotel room while
on tour across Canada. Decades later, it was completed by his daughter Tami when
she discovered that demo a week after he passed away in Feb 2015. Such are the
stories and legacy behind the songs on this very special and powerful tribute by
Tami Neilson.

From the opening title track “Don't Be Afraid”, the last song her
father ever wrote, Tami takes us on her journey of being pulled downward by the
weight of loss and mourning, then strikes out into the face of grief with some
of the most defiant fierceness we have heard from her. Reaching out to grasp
possibly her best song writing to date, she gives some of her most fully
realised performances. As she goes from strength to strength we are left with
the treasures she has collected along the way, supported by some of the
strongest musical influences in her life. Songs from the masterful pen of her
father, her continued work with her brother Jay Neilson, co-writer of
“Walk”, as well as fellow conspirator Delaney Davidson, all fit seamlessly
in this moving testament to the man who laid the foundations of her musical
career.
