Influenced by her big-city upbringing in Vancouver, BC and her love for the sounds of artists like Joni Mitchell and Bruce Springsteen, Tessa’s music embodies a blend of country, folk and pop that places honest storytelling, and lyricism, at the forefront. Since the release of her debut EP in 2014, Tessa’s music has evolved with her maturing talent. Tessa, who studied at the Sarah McLachlan School of Music in Vancouver, won the international songwriting competition “Your Voice in the Park” at 14 years old. Now a published poet and TEDx speaker, the singer-songwriter has performed on stages across North America, with highlights including the Massey Theatre, the Rio Theatre, Austin’s 501 Studies and Nashville’s esteemed Listening Room and Douglas Corner Cafe.
The songwriter, who splits her time between the West Coast and Nashville, TN, aims to release new music in 2019.
