SASSAFRASS! Is the title of the latest album by sparkling singer Tami Neilson. The colourful artist heads in to fire up Montréal with her Soul and R&B sound and a contagious energy in the tradition of the late, great Aretha Franklin. But for all her delightful charm, this Canadian-born New Zealander makes her presence felt onstage as a contemporary woman, mother and daughter, thanks to her suave, powerful voice and resolutely current, hard-hitting lyrics. An absolute must!
