The Talented Tazmin
After finishing her GCSEs, it has been a busy summer for Year Eleven student Tazmin Barnes around the local music scene with a number of festival appearances, studio sessions and radio interviews.
For the second year running Tazmin was invited to perform at Sunshine Festival in Upton-upon-Severn on the line-up with artists and bands such as Status Quo, Heather Small, Go West and Five Star, and also at their sister event, Mello Festival (Hanley Castle), alongside Soul 2 Soul and The Christians. Tazmin featured at Wizzafest (Bromsgrove), Pershore Plumfest, the Worcester Show (in Gheluvelt Park) and was the featured headline act at Droitwich Saltfest. Whilst performing at the Worcester Show she was interviewed by Nina Das Gupta from BBC Hereford and Worcester, which was broadcast as part of a feature on their BBC Introducing show. That was her second radio interview of the summer having earlier been invited to discuss her GCSE results on the ‘Breakfast Show’ within minutes of discovering her results.
In addition to live performances, Tazmin has attended ‘masterclasses’ and started to co-write with well-known producers such as Jin Jin (Jess Glynne’s manager) and Fred Cox (platinum award winning writer for Rag’n’Bone Man, Paloma Faith and Kasabian). We look forward to some new songs from those sessions soon.
Tazmin will be ending the festival season with a performance at the Worcester Music Festival on Saturday 15 September.
