Tess is a Franco-American singer-songwriter, spending her early years between the eastern city of France, Strasbourg, and New York, including a few years covering herself in music in Liverpool in the UK, she then became a regular in the music scene in Paris, where she performed nightly spending a couple of years honing her performing craft, before making the move to New Zealand.
A thousand miles from home and the universal language of music has given her plenty of grounding in the land of the long white cloud.
Regularly seen strumming in the vibrant circuit of Wanaka and Queenstown for a few years, and going up and down the South Island to play, she then moved to Golden Bay for new explorations and encounters, Tess has been a nomad going where the music calls, which has forged a certain quality to her music and lyrics, filling them with experiences and people, longing and sometimes raw vulnerability.
Influenced by songwriter giants like Bruce Springsteen, John Prine or Joni Mitchell, Tess' soulful voice sends shivers down your spine, with songs stemming from explorations of the soul on the road in NZ, reflections on change and moving forward, stories connecting cities to mountains, and back to the sea.
Her first album is coming out this year, recorded at Sublime Studios in Otago, with a mix of acoustic stories and more playful rocking songs with her new band, all stemming from a year of writing and reflecting as the world slowed down.
