Tess Henley

Retro-styled R&B singer, pianist, and songwriter Tess Henley made her recorded debut in 2008 with Easy to Love, a self-released set of material that belied her young age. Just after she reached the age of 20, the Kent, Washington native released another EP, The Appetizer, and achieved notice through a number of competitions, including the Budweiser-sponsored Jill Scott's Summer Block Party, which she won. The 2012 film Hello I Must Be Going featured her song "Boy in the Window," which also won SoulTracks' International Song Competition and an Independent Music Award. In 2013, Henley released her second album, High Heels & Sneakers, produced by Philadelphia-based Roots affiliates Dice Raw and Khari Mateen. Yet another competition led to a collaboration with producer Don Was, who helped her record Wonderland, an early-2015 EP that featured backing from session veterans. She promoted it with a pair of performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live. ~ Andy Kellman

An amazing talent! Both vocally & stylisticall y . Tess is so soulful w/ a side of retro. Shame on me 4 not discovering Ms. Henley till 7+ years after her album debut. A diff. kind of Neo Soul, but close to this genre. She immediately falls into one of my fave artists along w/ D'Angelo, Adriana Evans, Maxwell, Jill Scott, Erika Badu, Lala Hathaway, Musiq Soul Child, Cait La Dee, Amy Winehouse, Adelle, Corinne Bailey Rae, and some of the greats like Chaka, Luther & Stevie Wonder

I fell in love with Tess when I first heard her. After hearing hitting me hard I was on a search to find her album and no one had it. Here in Memphis we don't really have any CD stores anymore so I have to go to Target, Wal-Mart, etc and no one had her, but I found her on Rhapsody and bought it there. If you don't have the CD it is definitely worth getting. She only has eight tracks but all are really good. I love them all. Thank you Pandora for introducing me to Tess Henley.

Tess is definitely not your average R&B/Soul singer-songw r i t e r . Though under the radar for just a year, she managed to get her CD added to Play Network’s rotation (Starbucks, GAP and other stores), became a new artist on Pandora, and won the Best Local Band Contest for NW United States’ largest radio station. Tess' emotional voice and piano is a sultry vibe that refines the tapestry of R&B and neo-soul into her own smooth silk. Musically rich songs that soothe the soul of young and old alike.
