Smiling with Your Eyes
Sunshine Coast based talent Tamara Davis, a new and up and coming singer/songwriter has possibly redefined Australian pop rock music with her "rock chik" attitude and ability to combine hook-laden melody, harmony and guitar charged pop rock tunes, and she has managed to stay somewhat original. Tamara is now recieving airplay on her new single 'rock chik' which has recieved great reviews over the past few weeks. Tamara Started writing and singing 3 years ago but only in the last 12 months she decided to go solo with the help and direction of Nathan Woodrow who co-wrote, and produced the EP. Tamara brings an array of songs to her first attempt at a release. "Smiling with your eyes" includes a mixture of original rock and pop songs, tunes like "Rock Chik", "Lullaby" and "1 size fits all" shows her nature of just rockin' it out. It's difficult to listen without feeling somewhat energised by these electric tracks, whereas "All that's left to say" displays her taste for stripped back, raw melody and harmony, and the big sounding "Jealousy" is thrown in there for something in between. Tamara connects with her audience and her music through life experiences and through what she believes to be important in her life. Her strong attitude to life and reaching potential is evident in her lyric and delivery, as well as underlying messages and ambiguous story telling where her lyrics can be interpreted in a variety of ways. "Smiling With Your Eyes" is an accurate representation of where Tamara is in life at the present, and a positive start to Tamara's music endeavours and possibly even a career.
