About Tessa Perry

Parker, CO

Tessa Perry is a vocalist, guitarist, and writer
whose sound is steeped in the country-blues and folk traditions.
She's rapidly cultivating a loyal fan base on both sides of the
Atlantic through her startlingly fresh songs with lyrics that are
wistful and punch-in-the-gut candid. Whether playing to a sold-out
200-seat venue or an East Village dive bar, Tessa spins images and
observations of the world around her into soulful, intimate
communication with her audience.

Born in England and raised on the west coast of Ireland, Tessa hit
the road at age 18 with a dilapidated guitar, three (not to be named)
cover songs, and a mind to educating herself in the ways of the world.
She soon got bored to tears with those three songs, so
she proceeded to write her own new tunes.

Thus began a career that would lead her to performing across Europe
with headliners like Ani DiFranco, Damien Rice, the
Indigo Girls, the Corrs, the Hothouse Flowers, and
many more internationally successful artists.

Tessa's debut recording, Live at DeBarras, was released
in 2001 in Dublin to national acclaim. Music critic Cormac Looney
called the album's subtly raw compositions and boldly improvisational
style ‘solemn, heartfelt and neatly funky, standing shoulder to
shoulder with the best of Irish songwriting in the last year.'

Tessa's latest album, Weightless, was recorded in New
York City, where Tessa has found a fertile new home base.
'Weightless' is a peep into the life of an outsider trying to make it
on the inside. With her sweet-as-honey, thick-as-whiskey voice Tessa
tussles with some lyrically brilliant songs with both hands and holds
them out for you to taste and savour. Co-produced by Brad Albetta,
who has recently gained deserved praise for his work with Martha
Wainwright, this album is the beginning of what promises to be an
extraordinary career, because it’s the only way she knows...........
