Tammy Pescatelli is the kind of woman you wish was your sister or your best friend. Like a good sister, she‘s always ready with a good joke or lively quip. On her album, It Is What It Is, she uses every bit of her experience growing up in a large Italian household to make light of family, religion, and even politics. But, like a best friend, she dishes advice on everything from binge drinking tips to keeping ourselves well grounded.
