My latest project is in full swing now and I am LOVING meeting all the awesome people who have been brave enough to come and meet me at random places around my wonderful hometown of Hastings. If you’d like to know what the heck I’ve been up to here’s a fab ‘behind the scenes’ movieContinue reading »
SECRET SOLO GIGS! Very excited that my secret gigs around Hastings are now under way… After some incredible suggestions from my online fans and friends I have found some very special spaces to share with you… The first gig in the series on the 13th May was so much fun and a brilliant way toContinue reading »
I admit it. I have totally fallen in love with my violin again. I’ve always had an interesting on/off kind of relationship with it, but right now, I just can’t stop playing it! Since moving back to Hastings, I’ve really been revisiting old roots, deep memories and places that sing out “home’ to me.Continue reading »
I’m Writing Again!!
In October 2017 I was fortunate enough to be accepted onto the Arvon Foundation’s Songwriting Retreat, led by the wonderful Ray Davies (The Kinks) and Marion Wells. It was just what I needed to reboot me back into my love of songwriting and armed only with my little old violin I set to work writing song after song in a beautiful farmhouse in Devon. I met some incredible creative talent on the course, including, of course, the total legend that is Ray Davies and learnt so much about myself as a songwriter and musician…
So…under the cover of darkness last month I sneaked out without telling anyone, armed only with my violin and test ran a brand new song at this gorgeous little acoustic club in Hastings called The Lantern Society…they pick the best bits for their radio show, so if you want to go straight in for a BLH fix go to 23.20, if not, light a candle, pour yourself a little of what you fancy, don your favourite cosy cardigan and listen to the whole thing…
Thanks so much for all your continued support,
Thanks Tessa 🙂Continue reading »

Its been a surprisingly emotional journey putting these little packages together. The breaking down of my lyrics onto the tags for the video really taught me a thing or two about my own writing, and proved to me how much I actually really meant this song, as the smaller the lyrics got broken down, theContinue reading »
Being the old fashioned girl I am, and much as I enjoy this age of social media, theres nothing I love more than receiving a handwritten envelope in the post. There’s a moment of excitement and anticipation just before you open that package, the feeling of the unknown, and the realisation that someone cared enoughContinue reading »
