Miss Tess & The Talkbacks
Thursday, March 13, 2014
Doors 7:30pm; Show 8:00pm
Stoltz Listening Room $20
Miss Tess and her band, the Talkbacks, make swinging modern vintage music that nods to the traditions of saloon jazz, country swing, early rockabilly, and New Orleans second line...yet somehow they maintain a unique and personal sound.
Growing up here in Maryland in a musical home, Miss Tess came of age listening to punk, grunge, and alternate rock, and then got into rockabilly, old country, and early blues after she moved to Boston. If you experienced her riveting set the last time she played in the Stoltz, you know how it all fits. If you didn't...well, here's your chance!
“Nashville meets Brooklyn on the country chic 'The Love I Have For You,' Tess’s recently released second album on rootsy label Signature Sounds...pays homage to the totemic men who shaped the genre, claiming their contributions for the distaff branch of the Americana family tree but still leaving room for matriarchal figure Bonnie Raitt's Give It Up or Let Me Go.”’”
