Drawing comparisons with Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star) Tess Parks has become the most recent signing to Alan McGee's 359 Music stable. Her debut album 'Blood Hot' presents simple rock 'n' roll structures with psych/folk textures and the seductive hoarse-whispery drawl of Tess' voice. Tess declares an affinity with the gently fried tones of Spacemen 3 or Brian Jonestown Massacre. A recent collaboration with Anton Newcombe suggests the admiration is reciprocal.
“Tess is a true believer in the church of rock’n'roll. She’s got great taste and is really sharp. I got lucky again!“ - Alan McGee.
Tess Parks tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Jan 2010.
