Singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tessa Rose Jackson may only be 20 years old, but she has already built quite the reputation for herself, winning over audiences and critics alike worldwide with her smart and heartfelt songwriting. In addition to playing sold-out shows in Amsterdam, the Dutch songstress has taken over the radio airwaves with “Lost and Found” in high rotation on the largest Dutch radio station, and performed live on the most popular late-night TV show.
“Lost and Found” was first featured as the iTunes US Single of the Week in May, ahead of the release of her debut album, (Songs From) The Sandbox, on April 5. The track is a delightfully catchy, pop-infused tune replete with rich harmonies, handclaps and swirling layers of instrumentation – and the video does not disappoint either. You can watch “Lost and Found”now on YouTube, and we encourage you to post and share! (Songs From) The Sandbox is now available via iTunes.
Influenced both by the music she grew up listening to (The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys) and by her time at the BRIT School in London (home to fellow artists Adele and Kate Nash), Jackson describes her music as a “more accessible Feist and a slightly poppier Fleet Foxes, with a nod to Ray Lamontagne and a bit of Edward Sharpe.”
(Songs From) The Sandbox opens with the instantly captivating “Stepping Stone,” a track with toe-tapping rhythm and light, airy vocals and that premiered with American Songwriter (seeHERE). “Change Time,” which was featured in a popular IKEA TV spot and is currently used in a LG ad in Brazil, is bursting with frenetic energy, both from Tessa Rose’s galloping vocals and a lively, bouncing beat. The slower, dreamy “405” on the other hand reels the listener in with its shimmering facets and its emotional depth.
