"This girl can sing!"

Some really beautiful tracks on this CD as a tribute to her father. One track a bit less appealing but overall a great country-style album.

"Excellent CD from top performer"

Powerful vocals and meaningful lyrics are delivered in Tami's latest CD. This classy NZ artist sings in such a way that every word matters. Whether she is singing about love, loss or having a good time, Tami brings you into the moment and holds you there to the last phrase.


Just 18 months after releasing her internationally acclaimed album “Dynamite!”, The prolific Tami Neilson returns with “Don’t Be Afraid”.

  • WINNER – “Best Country Album 2015”
  • SILVER SCROLL 2014 – “Walk (Back to Your Arms)”
  • #1 – NZ Album & iTunes country charts
  • “Top Ten Country Music Albums of 2014” in The Guardian.

The beginnings of this album were birthed in 1972 by a young Ron Neilson, who recorded a demo of the first single, “Lonely” outside a hotel room while on tour across Canada. Decades later, it was completed by his daughter Tami when she discovered that demo a week after he passed away in Feb 2015. Such are the stories and legacy behind the songs on this very special and powerful tribute by Tami Neilson.

From the opening title track “Don’t Be Afraid”, the last song her father ever wrote, Tami takes us on her journey of being pulled downward by the weight of loss and mourning, then strikes out into the face of grief with some of the most defiant fierceness we have heard from her. Reaching out to grasp possibly her best song writing to date, she gives some of her most fully realised performances. As she goes from strength to strength we are left with the treasures she has collected along the way, supported by some of the strongest musical influences in her life. Songs from the masterful pen of her father, her continued work with her brother Jay Neilson, co-writer of “Walk”, as well as fellow conspirator Delaney Davidson, all fit seamlessly in this moving testament to the man who laid the foundations of her musical career.
