"Five years ago, I fell in love with T. Nile’s rustic banjo-folk tunes at the Folk Fest. The west coast songstress is now tinkering with electro beats, which only cements my musical crush. She’s also one of 20 finalists in what has become Canada’s richest music prize — a talent competition sponsored by a Vancouver radio station. (The winner alone gets $100,500.) Nile will share Stage 7 with Kim Beggs, a folk-roots musician from the Yukon. The two friends first met at our Folk Fest in 2007." (Edmonton Folk Music Festival, 2012)
"Like a ray of sunshine on a cold day..."
"A quantum leap in heartfelt emotion and sonic texture."
"As for T. Nile, her set was as refreshing as a splash of water... she served up a mouth-watering menu of rustic and groovy ditties... her vocals were sweet, carefree and tangy." (Edmonton Folk Music Festival)
"Silently by T. Nile is the best summer single I’ve heard so far this year."
"Come from Galiano Island with a banjo on her knee, Vancouver's T. Nile could well be the biggest roots noise out of these very rootsy parts since Neko Case and the Be Good Tanyas."
"…fantastic songs showcasing T. Nile's innate ability to make each song its own. You need to be close to your radio tonight. Be there or, as Kinnie Starr says about this artist, you will be missing out on a big piece of tomorrow."
"The music is outstanding. Haunting in some places, rootsy and upbeat in others. An interesting juxtaposition of traditionally conflicting styles..."
"Tamara Nile is one of those young fresh talents that comes along only once in a while - an accomplished songwriter and musician, she has that rare ability to connect with the audience from the start and keep them engaged."
"Comprising nine original songs and a reworked classic, [At My Table] gives notice of an artist who can play different styles while fusing her own sound... She answers the age old question: Can a banjo be funky? In Nile’s hands, yes it can."
"Eclectic songs, rooted in tradition but looking forward. One of Canada's musical gifts to the 21st century."
