Tami Neilson: Stay Outta My Business

Now based in NZ, the twangy rock 'n soul singer is making a mark internationally. The first single from her upcoming album, Sassafrass!, this track is bold and brassy, driven by her force of nature voice.

Tami Neilson: Stay Outta My Business

By Kerry Doole

Tami Neilson - "Stay Outta My Business" (Outside): The career and life story of Neilson is a fascinating one. Ontario born and raised, she was a member of the popular Neilson Family country band. Love lured her to New Zealand a decade ago, and she has ascended to award-winning stardom Down Under.


Her reach is expanding internationally, and she has devoted plenty of time to Canada, touring her earlier albums Dynamite and Don't Be Afraid. Her next album, Sassafrass!, comes out June 1, preceded by this rousing single. The bold and brassy tune features horns and backing vocals, but Neilson's powerful force of nature delivery remains front and centre.

Her freewheeling, genre-jumping sound defies easy categorisation, with her label's tag of "twangy rock 'n soul" coming close. Expect Sassafrass! to be more upbeat than Don't Be Afraid, an album created in the aftermath of the death of Tami's father Ron.

After NZ dates, Neilson heads to Europe this summer, with more Canadian shows expected after that.

A charismatic and witty performer and a skilled songwriter, Neilson is the real deal. Watch closely.

Neil Young's Love Earth Tour Will Take Him Throughout Canada

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
