Imagine a woman with a powerful soulful voice that nails the classic 40’s,50s and early 60s R&B and rock and roll sounds. Now combine that with the killer rockabilly instrumentation of slapping upright bass, swinging drums and virtuoso guitar and you’ve got Tammi Savoy and The Chris Casello Combo.

From Chicago, Tammi Savoy is the 2019 Ameripolitan Award recipient for Female Rockabilly Artist of the Year. On guitar, Chris Casello is a veteran of the Detroit, Nashville and Chicago music scenes. He is a 2nd generation inductee to The Rockabilly Hall of Fame, and has worked  with ‘50s greats including Johnny Powers, Jack Scott, Billy Lee Riley, Wanda Jackson and the truly legendary Bo Diddley.

The duo join us ahead of their Australian debut album Rhythm & Roll.
