Tess / Press

“Tess (TheNameIsTess.com) who demonstrated a dynamic performance in her original style, “Hip Rock N’ B”, to a captivated audience in the VIP room..”

““Whore” comes to us straight from the The Name Is Tess EP, and, like all great music videos/short stories/M. Night Shyamalan movies, includes a twist that’s especially satisfying”

“Tess has created her own genre that she calls 'HipRock'nB.' She is a very dynamic and versatile songstress that puts many to shame.”

“The pièce de résistance was Tess’ awesome performance of her latest single, the infectious and poignant song, Whore.”

“Ladies (and gents) stand up and tell it like it is!”

“Tess has a powerful voice embedded within her self titled Hip-Rock&B sound, I could tell that her performance was going to be dope before she even hit the stage”

"She’s an undeniable talent with a stage presence that deeply resonates with her audience"

“You may not know the name Tess now, but after you’ve given her 7 song digital EP “The Name is Tess” a listen, you won’t forget the name Tess”

“Last month Afro-Punk staged a battle of the bands for slots at the festival. One of the winners, the New York City songwriter and bandleader Tess, was a dynamic belter, whipping up dramatic rock vignettes in an early afternoon set.”

“Tess, who displayed an awesome talent at songwriting and a powerful voice that certainly awakened the surrounding neighborhood.”

“She has the massive voice of a pop star, but an eclecticism and depth of soul rarely heard these days in Top 40 land.”

“That said, the New York–based songstress did a great job of playing the hand she was dealt: stretching her voice to the limit, coming into the shy Toronto crowd, dancing until she was dripping in sweat, and breaking into tears on one of the slower, more emotional numbers.”

“While she is working on her new project that will drop in 2012, for the holidays, she gave us something special to sweat to as we work off that sweet potato pie, collards, gumbo, turkey, chicken, stuffing.....etc ;) ”

“Posted a new song”

“...she is one artist to keep your eye on.”

“Tess released the music video for "Feenin." The music video is from her latest project 'Goes Jodeci'”

“We have to admit, normally we remain partial to originals. However, we must give credit where credit is due–and said credit is due to an artist named Tess.”

“Talking about powerful visuals and soulful vocals in this cover of Jodeci classic 'Feenin'. The Name Is Tess. This lady right here is delivering an poignant video, directed by Salvador Bolivar, and she can sing her ass off too!”

“The not-so newbie has been grinding hardcore and was able to work her music on to radio (New York’s Hot 97) with no album or label support. Quite the feat.”

“These are women who really embrace power and you see it their work"”
