Tamsin CD Release Show, Adrianne Lenker opens

In many ways, the story of Tamsin Wilson’s beginnings as a musician explains her current sound. A curious 15-year-old found a guitar in a dusty closet in a forgotten corner of her family home. What began as a blanket of basic chords, onto which she could place her words, slowly grew into a unique and ever-expanding style of music that transcends expectations and aims directly at the most vulnerable part of us – our minds.
