She's immediately mesmerising and unexpected.With her looped guitar harmonies knitted with sublime soprano harmonies, the intricacy of her songs magical.

This international artist speaks a truth that captivates you, her songwriting is honest yet powerful and through her songs she paints a picture of heartbreak, joy and wandering. She has been evoking the attention of the crowd since she would play random guitar riffs teamed up with improvised lyrics for her friends on a backyard deck.

Tessa took it to a new level when she decided to fly to the middle of Australia to find herself and her style. It was there in the small tin shed she picked at the guitar and explored her craft. When she returned to Canberra after her travels, she started busking on the cold canberra streets, which eventually turned into performing at open mic nights all over the city, this is where she honed in on her style. Driven by her new found love for music, she packed up her trusty guitar and flew to New York, where she busked in the subways, played in caf├ęs and bars throughout the entire city, eventually playing her way to Pennsylvania. She found herself stopping the crowds in their tracks in small town bars of Carlile, Boston and all the way to Toronto, Canada.

Tessa Decided to travel on home to Australia, she Based herself in the tropics of Far North Queensland, where She had the chance to continue creating songs through experience while she charmed audiences at regular shows throughout Cairns and the Tablelands, including the Tablelands Folk Festival where she was showcased to packed crowds along side The Blue Ruins, Brigit Murane and Davey Simony.

She draws inspiration from artists such as Damien Rice, Matt Corby, Ed Sheeran and Ben Howard, just to name a few, influenced by these artists she creates a unique art of her own.

She now lives out her Wonder beast of a van the Delightful "Annette the Vannette" and Tours Aus for a creative living and to simply share her love for art with others.
