“Tamela D’Amico: They call her "Sinatra in Heels", and just like "Ol’ Blue Eyes", this renaissance woman of the arts also acts and directs, but her voice is the juicy fruit beneath the peel. The tiresome trend of gratuitous vocal gymnastics makes it so refreshing to observe Tamela’s respect for melody. Her vocal placement is Streisand-esque at times, but her style evokes the strong feminine mystique of a Peggy Lee. She says, "I only know how to sing from the center of my soul. I want to wrap my voice around you like an embrace, and give it to you as a genuine gift." And it is that very sentiment that emanates from every lyric she sings. D’Amico is almost a purist compared to others on this list. She unabashedly performs old school Jazz, and it works for her both in personal style, and in musical appeal. Her album, Got A Little Story is available now, but keep your ears poised for her upcoming duet with the great Billy Vera, and all that will soon follow. www.TamelaDAmico.com”
