The thrift-shop clothes, the vintage Weymann guitar, the demure stage name  all those clues signify, right from the start, that Miss Tess plans to take us on a retro roadtrip. The vocal stylings of the past perfectly suit her bell-like voice  more Madeleine Peyroux or Zooey Deschanel than Norah Jones  with its offbeat blend of sassiness and winsome charm.

Gimmicks like that can easily fall flat, and I must admit I felt a little trepidation as I first put Miss Tess's newest CD, Darling, Oh Darling, on my player. It didn't take long, though, for me to relax and breathe a sigh of relief. Miss Tess has the chops to pull it off.

To classify this Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter as merely a jazz singer would miss the point  she's a musical chameleon, recalling at various moments Tom Waits' barfly humor, the cabaret-rock of Beirut, or even the wink-wink wit of early Bette Midler.

Miss Tess is Brooklyn-based performing songwriter and bandleader. She currently tours with a tight knit quartet complete with guitar/lap steel, upright bass, drums, and herself on guitar and vocals.

Miss Tess & The Bon Ton Parade are hardened road warriors who have found homes in all types of venues ranging from upscale jazz clubs, music festivals, to local dive bars.Similar to artists such at Tom Waits, Randy Newman, Madeleine Peyroux, or Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, Miss Tess draws inspiration from older styles of music, and uses those sounds in the service of her own personality.
