“Tamara Hey’s soaring voice has charmed and captivated audiences throughout her native New York for over a decade. She writes meticulously detailed, magically crystallized three-minute pop songs which, just like her vocals, are disarmingly deep. She’s also one of the great wits in music: an edgy sense of humor spices Hey’s narratives and character studies, even in the gloomiest moments. And her punchlines have O. Henry irony and Amy Rigby bittersweetness. The title of Hey’s album Miserably Happy pretty much says it all.” – New York Music Daily
After studying with Tamara, I can play my melodies on a keyboard, find the right chords to go with them, and put it all on sheet music to take to a producer. I used to tell people I was a lyricist. Now, I tell them I’m a songwriter.Christopher G.
Her class inspired me to push forward and continue to grow as a songwriter.Monica S.
