Hailing from the Scottish Borders Tammy Miller releases her debut 3 track EP, Let It Go, a little further north at the Kingswood Hotel in Burntisland this Friday (10th October).

Tammy caught the attention of many at the beginning of the year when she played three sets at the MV festival in Aviemore, and the release has been awaited with interest.

tammy 300x168 - Tammy Miller - Let it Go EP ReviewAt just over 10 minutes in length it is a relatively short set of songs, but this is more than made up in the depth of quality. ‘Let It Go’ doesn’t mess about when it comes to introducing Tammy’s vocal. There is a depth and warmth, akin to that of a Taylor Swift, which acts as a contrast to what is, along with the other songs on the EP, a fairly melancholy tale tinged with some youthful angst.

The guitar accompaniment is light without impacting too strongly on the vocal. This theme runs throughout the EP putting emphasis on the voice. Lyrically the tracks are cleverly put together especially ‘Broken Fairytales’ with its numerous references to childhood stories. It is done neatly without drawing anything away from the song.

Overall this is a good little debut. It ticks a lot of boxes and is a fine, if all too short, introduction to the career of Tammy Miller.

Chartered surveyor by day, music reviewer by night, and occasionally I get to use my camera. A strange mix, but one that I enjoy. A chance meeting in the queue for Bella in 2010 led to the opportunity to write for InvernessGigs; a far cry from the days of writing for a football fanzine back in the late 80s, early 90s. My interests lie between the mainstream, the emerging and the local. Increasingly I find that we have more than enough locally to entertain us to necessitate a trip south. I’m always happy to give a listen, whatever the genre. Inverness has a plethora of talent, all of which I am more than keen to write about. If it encourages just one person to make the effort to listen to some new music I’ll be happy. You can contact Frank direct via frankieboyfin@gmail.com
