Pacificana

In 2013 Tamara released an EP of six derivative works of early Northwest americana music, co-sponsored by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. (Press release: Reimagined songs of the Northwest bring new relevance to Seattle past.) The project was produced by Katie Mosehauer, was previewed at the Chapel (Good Shepherd Center), and continues to be performed Seattle School District schools. The project collaborates with:

  • Ian Williams on backup vocals, guitar, and trumpet
  • Scott Teske on double bass
  • Emily Westman on vocals and drums/percussion
  • Natalie Hall on cello
  • Robert Power-Drutis on vocals and piano
  • Annie Jantzer on backup vocals and flute

Pacificana album review by Examiner Seattle Indie Music Insider reporter Jennifer Christine Sjolund excerpt:

“Pacificana taps into the neglected musical history of the Pacific Northwest with beautiful arrangements of forgotten old folk songs. Brought to life by indie pop/folk artist Tamara Power-Drutis and friends of impressive creative and musical credentials, Pacificana is an album that musically bridges the past and the present… Lyrically poetic, and disturbing enough to catalyze a humble respect for those who tamed the melancholy wild of the historic Pacific Northwest… You forget you’re getting a glimpse into the hearts and minds of our predecessors, until you realize you’ve heard the echos of these lives before, not only in the dynamic harmonies of Pacificana, but in the dirt you stand on and the air you breath.”
