Artist Biography:
Broadway Actress/Singer/Composer/Master Class Teacher/International Recording Artist(AEA/SAG/AFTRA)
From Broadway to the Blues, critics have called Professional Actress-Singer/Songwriter, Tamra Hayden, an 'emotionally rich, psychologically detailed singer that can reheat coffee' and 'outsizzle Peggy Lee'.
Tamra Hayden performed on Broadway as Cosette in Les Miserables and Texas in Cabaret (Studio 54); Off-Broadway in Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris; and has toured throughout the US as Christine in Phantom of the Opera, Cosette in Les Mis, It Ain't Nothin' But The Blues, and Hodel in Fiddler On The Roof (opposite Theodore Bikel).
A versatile singer, Tamra has performed Broadway Pops with Palm Beach Pops, The Nashville, Charlotte, Tucson and New Jersey Symphonies to name a few.
Chosen as one of the "Top Ten to watch in 2010" by CDBaby, Tamra's numerous musical collaborations have resulted in a wide variety of recordings: Reggae On Broadway; Traditions, Tartans and Tears; Stars At Night; Songs From The North Country; A Day At The Fair; I Believe In The Fire; Angus Mohr's: A Christmas Pageant; and Unwrapped. As a musical activist, Tamra's music has raised awareness for Union Collective Bargaining, Relay For Life, and Veterans for Peace. The video of her song, Eden Will Bloom, was presented at The Puffin Cultural Forum Poetry Jam For Peace.
Tamra graduated with honors earning a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Northern Colorado. She was awarded a MacArthur Scholarship as well as a scholarship for Viola.
Currently, Tamra sings in an ongoing Caberet, Jacques Brel Returns, in New York. Plus, she sings lead and plays Viola in August Moons (a New York based band) and Tradition, Tartan and Tears (a Colorado based Celtic Group).
