Tessa is a classically and professionally trained vocalist with 25 years of experience playing in live bands. She was drawn to music through her parents. Her father was a band director for thirteen years and her mother was a classical pianist. Ever since the age of four, Tessa was learning everything from piano to sight reading to voice, and also studied theater and dance. She began learning guitar in her early 20’s and also studied how to incorporate various types of guitar effects pedals into what is now a large part of her current band PuraPharm’s “wall of sound”. They have been compared to Siouxsie and The Banshees, My Bloody Valentine, The Cocteau Twins, Curve, and Jefferson Airplane… some of Tessa’s biggest influences.
You can catch Tessa and PuraPharm playing all over Houston and also in Austin, and you can check out their music and show dates at www.purapharmmusic.com .
