"Live Music Review: TV Nights"

Next on the bill is a guest appearance from the brilliant Tamsin Wilson. On a short whistle stop break back in old Blighty, Brit Wilson is currently based in Boston, studying music at the highly respected Berklee School, but has managed to spare an evening in her busy schedule to come and share her talents with us lucky lot. A diminutive figure on the stage with a simple guitar and a spotlight shining in her face, Tamsin’s tiny speaking voice barely makes it over the growing chuntering of the after work crowd who had taken over one end of the bar. The rest of us lean in to hear her introduction, but it soon becomes irrelevant as she embarks on a confident and near faultless set. Sounding immediately like an English Feist, Wilson’s voice is crystal clear and perfect, with enough edge to her alt-folk pop songs to keep it from being too commercial or saccharine. With her coquettish glances at the crowd and a knowing twinkle in her eye, she is nothing short of captivating, which is sadly tainted by the constant fight against the drunken barking of the bar crowd who all but drown her out. With the more devoted of us shhhing and scowling to little avail, what would have been a fully absorbing and satisfying set turned into a battle of wills between the devoted music fans and the devoted beer fans. A massive shame, but then again with such a huge talent, Wilson will win the battle to be heard in the end, that’s for sure. - Amelia's Magazine

Born in London, UK, singer/songwriter Tamsin Wilson relocated to Western Canada where she grew up listening to Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Cat Stevens. At 15, she uncovered an acoustic guitar in a closet and wrote her first song.

Intending to pursue a career in visual arts, Tamsin moved back to London and had a chance encounter with a music promoter in a kebab shop. He introduced her to the nu-folk scene in London and sparked her interest in performing. Tamsin then turned her full focus to music and moved to Boston in early 2009. Her first EP 'West to East' was released later that year.
