2020 Biamp PDX Jazz Festival presents Tahirah Memory
February 28 | 9:00 pm- $10
9 pm – midnight, all ages until 11 pm.
Soul singer and songwriter Tahirah Memory is a Portland native, described as having “… a beautiful instrument, a truly warm and gorgeous sound.” Audiences come away from her performances as if they’ve experienced an intimate conversation, rather than a crowded venue. Born to a musician father, who would later win a GRAMMY Award, a strong musical influence was present from conception. The 2015 release of Tahirah’s debut album Pride created huge buzz among soul and jazz lovers in Europe, topping the UK Soul Chart and garnering support elsewhere. Chris Wells of Echoes Magazine says her “depth of tone and easy elasticity is glorious to behold.” Miss Memory has toured domestically and internationally as a background vocalist for long time vocal icon KD Lang, as well as Jarrod Lawson, and as front-woman on her own tours. With Asha, her 2019 release, Tahirah was nominated by Soultracks for Best Female Vocalist, Best Album, and Best Song of the Year.
