Spotify Playlist: CMW(ahoo) 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, it’s Canadian Music Week! CMW is the best time ever, partially because there are so many sweet bands to check out and partially because bars are open to 4AM.

A special s/o goes out to our hometown bands playing CMW this year. Here’s to you Carden Cove, The Almighty Rhombus, Jennifer Holub, and Sulfur City. Make sure you......

SOUNDTRACK TO VEGAS: Pillowtalk by Zayn Immediately after our performance we hit the road back to Dallas to catch our flight to Las Vegas. When we arrive, the city is LIT, and it is still warm, so I am a happy gal. Vegas definitely takes the cake for most interesting characters ever. If you have been there, I am sure I need say no more.

Spotify Playlist: Spring Things

Hey you! It’s almost time to crawl out of your little hibernation nook and start thinking about what shorts you’re going to wear next month (go with the jean cut-offs. Classic.). I know the snow is melting and it’s a little scary to see grass, so I didn’t want to dive right into summer jams and overwhelm you. This month you’ve got an hour and a half of chill indie, acoustic, and electronic vibes to thaw you out. Turn it up ladies n’ gents!   P.S. I sneaked a Bare: A Pop Opera song in there for all you......

TESSA USA TOUR DIARY - DETROIT, AUSTIN, SXSW (Part 1)

Imagine a large black SUV pulling up to your door fully clad with a small crew of artists and business minds alike, ready to lug you and the VERY small amount of things you have on the musical journey of a lifetime. Those of you how know me, know that around 11:30 pm, I start to near the “past my bed-time” point (not the traditional rockstar, but what can I say? I guess all of those years of Alessandro Costantini ‘very calmly’ reminding me I should go home and rest my voice after a rehearsals for YES Theatre stuck in my head). On this......

Spotify Playlist: Shamrock Shake

The pseudo Irish boys are back in town! It’s March and you know what that means… tacky “Kiss me I’m Irish” shirts, terrible Leprechaun accents, and pints of Guinness because that’s the only Irish beer anyone knows. In honor of our favourite wee lads I’ve compiled a playlist of the most beloved Irish bands. Girls, grab your Guinness and a friend and have a therapeutic swaying sing-along to Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol! Lovers, you can kiss your S/O (whether he/she’s Irish or not) and listen to Breathless by The Corrs! Stoners, enjoy a healthy dose of Enya and......
