Tanyss Nixi is a Roots Alt-Country Artist from Edmonton, AB
As lead Singer/Songwriter for the band WILDWOOD, Tanyss Nixi draws from classic country & rockabilly influences (Kitty Wells, Hank Sr., Carl Perkins, Wanda Jackson) and modern alt-country greats (Gillian Welch, Richard Buckner, Neko Case) to make her own original, world-wise but never weary songs. Guitarist/Vocalist “Fat Dave” Johnston (The Fuzz Kings) brings his super charged little bolt of lightening to the stage with Mitch Diesel weaving a seamless melody on bass guitar and Scott Lingley (Old Reliable) bashing away delicately on the drums.
Tanyss has released 2 albums and played across Canada at festivals and showcases such as NXNE, WCMA, Much Music Unplugged. Her second album was supported by Rawlco Radio, and received shiny reviews from !Exclaim and Chart Attack. Having been on hiatus for a few years for personal reasons (i.e. complete restructuring of reality)- she is very excited to be recording a new album with the band this winter, set for release in 2017.
