LA INDIE MUSIC EXAMINER REVIEW
How can you not love a CD that begins with “Misery”? This CD is a snapshot of life wrapped within sorrowful, yet glorious vocals and rich warm melodies. Silvera has grown up in her music. This album is dark, deep, and honest with lyrics that strike. " Hit the link below for the full review of DEPARTURES and check out the review of SINK OR SWIM while you're at it.
BASS PLAYER MAGAZINE REVIEW of DEPARTURES
"It's all right here on LA singer/songwriter Tamara Silvera's DEPARTURES...a startlingly soul-baring release produced to a gritty brilliance by Grammy-winning vet John Whynot. Silvera's stellar voice (she's a vocal coach to LA pros) and mature songwriting deliver hooks and searing messages throughout. ...can't be recommended highly enough."
