Tamara Hey’s soaring voice has charmed and captivated audiences throughout her native New York for over a decade. She writes meticulously detailed, magically crystallized three-minute pop songs which, just like her vocals, are disarmingly deep.” - New York Music Daily

Hey got her start in the Lower East Side’s gritty singer-songwriter scene in the early part of this century, in the days before the edgy, artistic neighborhood was taken over by real estate speculators. Inspired by the fearlessness and sardonic humor of classic punk, the catchiness and wit of 60s Brill Building pop and the quirky fun of new wave, Hey quickly gained a following in bars and listening rooms in New York. 

Her third album, Miserably Happy, has been called a high water mark of that scene. In addition to her own releases, Tamara’s work appears on three Fast Folk Magazine compilations: Local Charm, New Voices NYC, and Rebirth, issued on Smithsonian Folkways Records. Her latest record, a showcase of her solo acoustic work, was released in May 2018.









Just like all of our shows, musicians play for your generous donations!  **support the music!**
