At only 20 years old, singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tessa Rose Jackson has already made quite a name for herself in the Netherlands, where she was born and raised. In addition to playing sold-out shows in Amsterdam, the songstress has taken over the Dutch airwaves, being put on high rotation on the largest Dutch radio station and performing live on the most popular local late night show. Influenced both by the music she grew up on (The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys) and by her time at the BRIT School in London (home to fellow artists Adele & Kate Nash), Tessa Rose describes her sound as a “more accessible Feist and a slightly poppier Fleet Foxes, with a nod to Ray Lamontagne and a bit of Edward Sharpe.” Her new album, (Songs From) The Sandbox, is now available via iTunes.
Album track “Lost & Found” features Tessa Rose’s sweet but commanding vocals above swirling layers of instrumentation and handclaps, leading to a chorus rich with harmonies. You can download the “Lost & Found” FREE MP3 via iTunes or stream the track HERE.
(Songs From) The Sandbox opens with the infectious “Stepping Stone,” an upbeat track with a captivating rhythm and light, airy vocals. “Change Time,” which was featured in a popular Ikea ad, is bursting with frenetic energy, both from Tessa Rose’s galloping vocals and a lively, bouncing rhythm. “405” is a slower, dreamy cut with an emotionally-charged chorus and an explosive ending.
A self-proclaimed “hippie child” who has mastered all aspects of her craft, Tessa Rose Jackson has won over audiences and critics alike with her smart and heartfelt songwriting. Stay tuned for more from Tessa Rose, coming soon!
