Well it’s no wonder and about time that this tremendously talented and pure soul is nominated for so many categories of music awards, quite frankly she’s always been a pure delight to speak with as well as to hear her incredible gift of song. With this in mind, Miss Tamanie Dove has bit me with her “Venom” and her incredible latest music project called 2018. It’s been quoted “I couldn’t have done this without your support, well my friends I am here to tell you I feel the same way towards this awesome singer songwriter & friend. Tamanie, arrives this album with a song called “Be Right Here” and what a beautiful ballad that just sums up a real & true emotional chord with myself, she has always had that power of reaching out to you in a way that seems to speak right to my heart and this song is only the first song on this wonderfully produced and sung album. “Stand Up” the 2nd cut on this wonderful and masterful album Tamanie brings in her element of versatility and shows her ability to “mix:” it up and really is vulnerable and is ahead of her time, I guess my words would be a “timeless treasure” that unlocks as you listen. The next track called “Venom” Tamanie, keeps her edgy but true music that really speaks to the elements of time and of place. The next track is called “Gone” Tamanie really is filled with the passion and I can really feel her emotionally charged feelings within the song and her tremendous vocals, …”outstanding” love it. With the next song starting out it’s a hard driven, gear shifting into high gear Tamanie brings the music driving machine to top speed, with the guitars ripping throughout and Tamanie just knockin’ it out of the park. The song is called “Not my Drama a very explosive but powerful message ushered in the mix with Tamanies’ rough and rowdy kind of lyrics and musicality. The same kind of rough & grindy kind of music that gets your hips and body grinding to the beat, the song is called “Revelation” where Tamanie explores the region of reality and allows you to hear her thoughts, delivered via her powerfully written lyrics and executed with Tamanies’ ever so talented vocal range. “Delusional Hallucination” brings in the sound of tribal beats along with a eclectic style of flamenco and classical guitarism throughout. Tamanie has the ability to express herself through her tremendous vocal range and this song shows her expressiveness and is different, however it has the Tamanie signature on it. “I’ll Try” Tamanie brings in her passion, and expresses a lot of her love on this song Tamanie, actually once again speaks to you with her natural abilities to convey her feelings and emotions and love throughout her wonderful music catalog. “Dissapear” has a almost funky kind of sound to it, however Tamanie pulls out her trigger of fire in her awesome vocal range and rides with pureness and feelings, and the song has sounds of rhythmic beats and guitar strums and has a almost bluesy funk to it, and is really enjoyable to hear this musical diversity in Tamanie. “I’m That” Tamanie has an almost grindy, edgy feel to this song that has a true bluesy feel to it and the guitar work is phenomenally great and with Tamanies’ vocals once again make it come alive. The next song is called “on Your Knees” Tamanie brings in her element of simple song, the song just is true Tamanie at her finest and I love the song. The last song on this album is called “Never Lie” and is probably one of my favorites on the album, I really love the way the music mix is blended within the haunting and mysterious and outstanding vocals of Tamanie. Tamanie Dove has been a tremendous gift to my life as a writer and I am so honored to have written her music album reviews and in my opinion she needs to be not only nominated for all the elements that she has, but nominated for pure talent and awesomeness and if there is a category for true friend that would get my vote. I thank Tamanie for all of her continued support for my writing and to quote “I Couldn’t Have done This without your Support” XoXoXo.
