“A duet with former roommate (and Lake Street Dive frontwoman) Rachael Price, Miss Tess’ “True Flood” swings and swaggers, rooted in a retro groove that’s equal parts blues, mid-century rock & roll and Booker T-worthy R&B.” Read and listen here.
HELLO we got some exciting news today ~~~ Our first single "TRUE FLOOD" is now premiering on Wide Open Country. Check out this "grooving come-hither" below, featuring one of my best gal friends as a duet on vocals, Miss Rachael Price (of Lake Street Dive) ... and stay tuned for the official single release this Friday!
Please share and let us know what you think!
We’re thrilled to be invited to showcase at this year’s Americana Fest. It’s a great time to be in Nashville and see a ton of bands + great music. Our set will be Wednesday, 9/11 at 5pm (no wristband required) and we hope to see you there!
“This tune started with a bass line. I was at a songwriting retreat on a rustic island in the middle of a lake in New Hampshire, fooling around on my guitar. I started making a basic demo and wanted to experiment with an interesting vocal harmony, so I asked Rachael (Price) to come over to my cabin to sing it with me, knowing she would be the perfect duet partner. Rachael and I have been friends and musical soul sisters ever since we started sharing a Boston apartment in 2005 as a result of a craigslist ad. We have a very similar singing background, and used to have a band together (The Sweet & Lowdown). When it came time to record she came down to Nashville and we cut the vocals live in the studio, both singing into the same vintage RCA mic.”
We're doing a Nashville residency in January at the beloved 5 Spot! Check us out Wednesdays from 6 to 8pm. Only five bucks to get in and new special guests every week!
