Sleepy Creek Concert Series Presents: Miss Tess & the TalkBacks
Friday, November 9, 2012 at 7:00 PM (CST)
By blending their knack for melodic and rhythmic improvisation and interplay with elements of honky-tonk, western swing, and golden-era pop standards, Miss Tess and her multifaceted supporting band have arrived at a unqiuely open-hearted style & performance. With an aesthetic from the ‘40s and ‘50s, a rooted Americana influence, with a mix of country, blues, jazz, and early rock 'n roll, each different tune will make you want to sing and dance along.
Some comments on their new album:
"Sweet Talk deftly traverses the borderlines between early Tom Waits-esque lounge ballads, old timey country, a dollop of folk rock and a sprinkle of catchy jazz... Miss Tess’s deep, booming voice is
alternately seductive and sexy, and is a pure joy to listen to."
PopMatters (8 STARS)
"One of America's best kept secrets... a singer with incredible talent [who] creates a stunning late night, haunted feel." (5 out of 5 stars) - Country Music People (U.K.)
