Infinite Worlds (2017)

INFINITE WORLDS WAS RECORDED AT SALVATION RECORDING CO. IN NEW PALTZ, NY WITH ENGINEER AND CO-PRODUCER CHRIS DALY. TAMKO AND DALY WORKED CLOSELY AND TIRELESSLY IN HIS UPSTATE NY STUDIO THROUGH THE WINTER INTO THE SPRING OF 2016. THE ALBUM’S TITLE REFERENCES A BOOK OF POETRY BY DANA WARD CALLED THE CRISIS OF INFINITE WORLDS, A BOOK TAMKO FOUND PARTICULARLY INSPIRING DURING HER RECORDING PROCESS. THE RESULTING COLLECTION OF SONGS IS A MASTERCLASS IN SOARING, EMOTIVE, DIY, LO-FI INDIE ROCK, AND ONE THAT’S DEEPLY PERSONAL - BOTH DUE TO HER ALL ENCOMPASSING PERFORMANCE AND THE INTIMATE NATURE OF HER LYRICISM. IT’S AVAILABLE IN AUSTRALIA VIA BARELY DRESSED RECORDS (LICENSED FROM FATHER/DAUGHTER RECORDS (USA).
