Leave singer-songwriter Tamara Miller alone in a hotel lobby for 60 seconds and she might just write you a song.
On her 2008 debut (appropriately named 60 Seconds), the Toronto- now Austin based, independent musician told tales in short bursts of imagery; for her follow up EP – Changing Lanes – the award-winning piano-pop artist lets her songs guide her journey in a different direction.
The title cut from her debut, which was featured on the hit teen drama series, Degrassi: The Next Generation, was about making it on your own, leaving the past behind, and moving forward. “I believe ‘60 Seconds’ is a journey all of us at some point in our lives have taken,” Miller comments.
The seven songs on Changing Lanes – recorded in Toronto last March – are about a more personal journey. “It’s about finding a new path, while staying true to who I am,” explains the songwriter, who started playing piano at age six. “It’s discovering what’s best for me and moving forward.”
