For International Women’s Day on 8th March ReBalance are hosting a day of networking, panel discussions, and workshops followed by an evening show with Nilüfer Yanya, Tamzene and Martha Hill. Ahead of playing Union Chapel for ReBalance’s IWD celebrations, get to know Tamzene In Short.

Hailing from the Scottish Highlands, Tamzene crafts emotive and atmospheric synth-pop that showcases her musical dexterity and prowess. Having started learning piano and violin at an early age, and picking up other instruments along the way, there’s an undeniable determination to her creative journey so far that is tangible also in the young artist’s music. She’s joined by fellow ReBalance artist Martha Hill, who’s frank, soaring, and soulful tracks have been garnering her a great deal of praise. Completing the bill the incredible Nilüfer Yanya joins the celebrations, and any opportunity to catch her live is certainly not to be missed out on. Even more so as part of such an important event.

Three words to describe our/my music…

Soulful, personal stories

Last photo on your phone…

A double rainbow from the other day, I still get really excited about rainbows and insisted that my pal Stuart made a wish.

Favourite Instagram account…

National Geographic, @natgeo it’s STUNNING and I learn new things all the time about the world and about incredible people. I also love @rupikaur_ who is a wonderful, fearless poet.

The best venue I’ve played…

I played a sofar sounds gig in a triumph motorbike warehouse, that was very cool but I was pretty distracted by all the cool bikes.

Earliest song you remember…

Johnny Nash, I can see clearly now. I think we learnt it at primary school. And the. My step dad taught me how to play it on guitar.

The worst job I’ve ever had…

Actually I’ve never had a bad job, being a busker saved me from that fate.

Favourite food on tour…

LEON. Yum,

My Favourite word…

Dawn

Things that cheer me up…

The sea, Indian food, my friends, Bob Marley, writing songs and sharing them.

If I could play a gig anywhere it would be…

The Royal Albert Hall

I think you should listen to…

Abimaro- ‘Folding’ She has the voice of an angel.

If I could see anyone play live it would be…

Norah Jones (because I’ve seen Alicia Keys before and Whitney Houston isn’t an option).
