Under a blue light on the Music Lounge stage, the New Zealand-born (and, now, New York native) Tamaryn sang a collection of pulsingly-mellow tunes for the Bumbershoot audience. The songs were an interesting mix, with the rhythms almost over-powering the singer’s ghostly, etherial vocals. In this way the music surrounded the audience, with no tangible focal point, creating a sonic haze interrupted only momentarily by a quick drum fill or guitar lead. Tamaryn, backed by her three-piece band, mesmerized. Watch the performance here:
