Miss Tess & the Talkbacks - www.misstessmusic.com

Signature Sounds Recording Artist. Inspired by styles of vintage swing, blues, country, and early rock-n-roll, the band draws comparisons to artists such as Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Peggy Lee, and Chuck Berry, but maintains a style all of her own. Winner of the 2008 Boston Music Award "Outstanding Folk Artists of the Year." Notable performances include the Cayamo Cruise, the Washington Folk Festival, Burlington Jazz Festival, Regattabar Jazz Fest, Floydfest, Florida Folk Festival, Clearwater Jazz Festival, Blissfest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, American Roots Fest, Green River Festival.

Miss Tess also gets major points for originality. I don’t know of anyone else right now touring in the Americana scene that has such an eclectic, jazzy, old school and interesting vibe. There’s an authenticity present in Miss Tess’ music. It is not contrived, not too far a stretch for the skeptical imagination. She is real. And she is rare. - No Depression
"One of the things that makes the current Tess iteration so satisfying is her current band. Drummer Matt Meyer and bassist Dan Weller provide the requisite swing, but with detail (check Meyer’s little parade-beat rolls on Tess’s New Orleans tribute). Will Graefe is a brilliant guitar picker, capable of all manner of fills and concise, pointed solo statements — ringing one moment, then whining, then roaring. And he seems to have upped the ante on Tess’s playing of her vintage Weymann electric, which was always deliberate, jazz-informed, and apt, but now steps out with new confidence. Especially tasty was the twin lead she played with Graefe on the Texas-swing number about life on the road, "Everybody’s Darling, but Nobody’s Sweetheart." - Boston Phoenix
