Night One of two fantastic nights featuring the amazing MISS TESS AND THE TALKBACKS! The Brooklyn-based singer and her band make swinging, jumpin' modern vintage music that nods to the traditions of saloon jazz, country swing, early rockabilly, and New Orleans second line, yet somehow maintains a unique and personal sound.
TONIGHT'S GUEST: MICHAEL TARBOX
Michael Tarbox is a smokey-voiced singer from Boston whose songs combine Appalachian music, blues and gospel in exciting, unexpected combinations. An innovative guitarist, his playing revisits American musical traditions in a unique voice. He's also a writer with a spare, lyrical style that reflects and expands on his influences. Tarbox recently released his second solo album, Works and Days. His work with his band, The Tarbox Ramblers, has been praised by All Things Considered, The New Yorker and more.
"Between the fiddle, string bass, drums and slide guitar, you won't know what hit you." The New Yorker
"Starkly beautiful textures drenched in sepia-toned images, and black and white newsreels from the focal point of the ravaged human heart." All Music Guide
"Intoxicatingly original " The Boston Globe
MISS TESS AND THE TALKBACKS:
The Love I Have For You, the highly anticipated new music from praised Brooklyn-based band Miss Tess & The Talkbacks has just been released October 29 on Signature Sounds Recordings. The 7-song EP features six covers and one new original and follows their debut (Sweet Talk) for Signature Sounds. The new album was produced by Miss Tess & The Talkbacks and recorded and mixed by Devin Greenwood (Norah Jones, Anais Mitchell, Amos Lee) in Brooklyn, NY. The 7-song album features six covers and one new original and pays homage to some of Tess's favorite songwriters. Miss Tess explains how the band chose the 6 songs to cover: "Each artist we covered has held a special place in the history of our lives, as well as in the history of American music. These folks are all musical giants who dedicated their lives to music, and for that I hold them in the highest esteem."
