Tessie has released her new album titled ‘Feel Trip II’. A varied range of pop, soul, and beat-driven R&B filtered through the dance machine, Tessie shows her dynamic and unique vocal blend that shows she can easily sing any number of genre and retain her on style with her lovely falsetto and relaxed bluesy intonations.
‘Feel Trip II’ is out now.
Tessie hails from the waterfront city of Vallejo, California, where a talent for music was nurtured by her musician father. Before eventually gravitating to Alicia Keys, JoJo, and Jazmine Sullivan, Tessie could be found singing on youtube with ukulele in hand. Influenced by the bay’s bounce and lingo, the island riddims, and sultry acoustic guitar have clearly rubbed off on her nostalgic noughties R&B sound.
Written about relationships and vulnerabilities her 2019 debut EP Feel Trip set Tessie on a course for success, with tracks like The Way and Can’t Wait having notable acclaim via streaming platforms. Now leading with Do Me Like That from her follow up ep Feel Trip II, the sound is polished and the writing is finessed.
Inspired by seeing the influx of successful women in the industry, Tessie has the intent, passion and the bags of artistry needed to be part of the changing industry. Tessie tries to surround herself with creatives, and this clearly resonates through her musical output. After originally wanting to bow out of music after her first live performance, Tessie was inspired after seeing H.E.R’s first tour and made her music top priority.
Tessie elaborates on Do Me Like That:
“Do Me Like That is an ode to all the hopeless romantics. the track encompasses the feeling of going all the way out on a limb for love and not getting the same love in return.”
