Miss Tess & the Talkbacks

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.


On her newest release Baby, We All Know, Miss Tess continues to explore her own personal crossroads of American roots music. This full-length release features eleven finely crafted and well-sung original songs. Heightened by Tess’ prowess on her Weymann archtop guitar, she is accompanied by top-notch musicians, featuring her touring guitar player ace and co-conspirator Thomas Bryan Eaton. The songs were further enlivened with piano, organ, pedal steel, and fiddle in the studio.


“Miss Tess renders original songs with a self-possession and naturalness that heralds one of the most enjoyable albums this year.” –Downbeat
“An amalgamation of country-blues music with influences from artists both old and new, Baby, We All Know is decidedly old school. Miss Tess & The Talkbacks have truly crafted a winner.” –Paste
