Your new Christmas album Christmas with Tamara Usatova gives off such amazing classic Christmas vibes! Tell us more about the inspiration!
I really inspired by the old Christmas records of Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra that I listen to myself every single year. That’s why I decided to go with the old-fashioned way of recording, mixing and mastering on tape.
What is your favorite part of the recording process?
I love choosing songs for an album, but of course the most fun even though a bit stressful is the recording process. I absolutely love being in the studio!
If you could only choose one, what is your favorite Christmas song?
Obviously very difficult question for me. I can say which one is my favorite on my current album 🙂 – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Tell us your dream musical collaborations!
Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand and Queen. I have been their fan since childhood.
What is something unique we can learn about you?
That I was born in Soviet Union, grew up in post-soviet Crimea, have lived in three different countries so far and don’t plan to stop moving.
Where can we find you on social media and Spotify?
I am very active on Instagram (www.instagram.com/tamarausatova_ ) where I share both my music and a lot of life and psychology observations. I also release covers and original songs videos every month on my YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/tesaruga). For more information about me you can go on my website www.tamarausatova.com. And of course you can find my music on all the digital platforms.
