Bearing hallmarks of the simmering, jazz-inflected sound that made Tess and her former band the Bon Ton Parade a club and festival favorite, The Talkbalks introduce a more personal mix of influences. By blending her knack for melodic and rhythmic improvisation with elements of honky-tonk, western swing, and golden-era pop standards, Tess and her multifaceted band have arrived at a style simultaneously refreshing and hauntingly familiar.
"Miss Tess' "Sweet Talk" is a doozy, a fantastic mix of old-time country, jazz and swing..." - Leiceister Bangs
"daring and talented, a band of hybrid visionaries led by a honky-tonkin' chanteuse." - FAME
"deftly traverses the borderlines between early Tom Waits-esque lounge ballads, old timey country, a dollop of folk rock and a sprinkle of catchy jazz... Miss Tess's deep, booming voice is alternately seductive and sexy, and is a pure joy to listen to." - PopMatters (8 STARS)
Brooklyn musician Thomas Bryan Eaton can play pretty much anything that makes noise, but likes to spend most of his time wandering around the frets of a guitar, slip-sliding on a pedal steel or singing songs with nice melodies.
