Tammo Tamminga is an alternative singer songwriter with an edge to it. On his 6th album I Have A Few Songs For You (Rozo Records out on May 25th) he reanimates the spirit of true songwriting, playfully, yet thoughtful folk meets rock meets singer-songwriter.
Tamminga comes to table with an eclectic perspective that aims to eradicate creative barriers by challenging the very idea of what a song can be. Paradoxically Tamminga is uncannily adept at working within the framwork of classic song structures, But instead of clashing, these contrasting styles challenge and complement one another, resulting in an album of spiralling tensions and unexpected turns. Whether they are poking holes in commonly held ideas centered around relationships, creativity, mancaves or escapism, Tamminga never loses sight of the fact that he wants to bring a story across. Stories all can relate to. There is always time for a good story condensed in a 3 minute song
