Tammy Stamps is a new voice on the music scene with the release of her debut CD "Free" in June of 06. Inspired by her own life experiences of love, abuse, heartache and joy, she employs acoustic guitar to create simple, heartfelt tunes that engage her listeners to sing along. Her unique sound is an easy listen and has been described as "contemporary folk" filled with emotion. Born in California, most of her roots are in Wichita, KS where as a fifth degree black belt master and Olympic contender she owns and operates a martial arts academy. Music has been her life passion and is now her second career. She sang in local establishments for a number of years and will now be heard internationally with the inclusion of "No One Else" on "The Big Indie Comeback- Vol II" out of the UK, coming out in the Fall of 06. CD listeners have made requests to have her sing "You Make Me Whole" at their weddings and she now travels the US to share her music. A philanthropist at heart, Tammy has engaged in opportunities to share her music at a variety of charitable events including a humanitarian project to bring arts to small communities. Her music is slated for airplay at Matchbox 24 in the UK, Radio Crystal Blue in New York City, Nette Radio in Dallas, Tx., Mvy Radio in Marth's Vineyard, Sleepycat Records, NTG Radio and Radio Free Jackson in Michigan. Tammy's song 'I'll Never Leave' will be on the Indiegrrl compilation CD in 2006! Tammy's CD is now available through freshtracksmusic.com also. Quotes: - 'Tammy is a joy to have in our store. Everytime Tammy plays, I get compliments on her music and requests for more.' Wendy Baker - Borders Bookstores 'Stamps should be proud of her debut. If you are looking for hard rock music, this CD is not for you. But if you like music that touches you and that allows the singer in you to join in and sing along, I would recommend giving this CD a try. It is an easy listen on the surface, but the emotions come through loud and clear when you truly listen' Donna Ayers - Liberty Press As far as the artist herself, Tammy's other passion is Martial Arts.
