Miss Tess & The Talkbacks is a grooving rock ‘n’ roll band rooted in swinging blues, throwback country, and rockabilly music from Brooklyn, NY. Front and center in this tight quartet is soulful songwriter and skilled guitarist, Miss Tess.  She possesses a voice that is, “alternately seductive and sexy, and is a pure joy to listen to” (Pop Matters).

Their most recent release, The Love I Have For You, (2013 Signature Sounds Recordings) features six covers and one new original, and pays homage to some of Tess’s favorite singers and songwriters including Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Ted Hawkins, Randy Newman, and Hank Williams. The album was produced by Miss Tess & The Talkbacks and recorded and mixed by Devin Greenwood (Norah Jones, Anais Mitchell, Amos Lee) in Brooklyn, NY. “Each artist we covered has held a special place in the history of our lives, as well as in the history of American music,” says Miss Tess. “These folks are all musical giants who dedicated their lives to music, and for that I hold them in the highest esteem.”
