Crowned best female vocalist at the 2018 Austin Music Awards, Tameca has long been called the “queen of Austin soul” by her many fans who attend her sold out shows. She’s played SXSW, Austin City Limits Festival, 2018 NFL Draft, Chicago and Austin Food and Wine Fest and the famous Apollo Theater in New York. As a single mother of twins, Tameca put her career’s trajectory on a leash toprovide her twins with all the love and attention they needed. Now that her twins are seventeen, she is ready to bring her Austin flavor to the rest of the nation! In her nearly decade of local domination she’s opened for Max Frost, Vintage Trouble, Jill Scott, Smokey Robinson, Leon Bridges, Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, BB King, Brian McKnight, and most recently Gary Clark Jr. In November of 2018, she embarked on her first tour ever opening up for her fellow Austin native Gary Clark Jr. She’s been featured in Billboard, Rolling Stone, NPR, and more.
She recently released a video for her hit single “Are You Awake.” Tameca plans to release a new single during SXSW and an album in the early summer.
