The Texan Tess Wiley once called her third studio album from 2007 "Superfast Rock'n'Roll Played Slow", which probably still deserves an award for one of the most creative album titles of all time, but of course says more about her tongue-in-cheek approach than about the music itself. In her music, one can directly sense the vastness of her homeland. This could be the music that Willie Nelson hears on the porch of his farm while the sun sets behind the Texan hills in a blood orange hue. Tess Wiley's musical home lies somewhere between Folk and Country - right in the heart of Americana.
Being the daughter of a Grammy-winning musician and a writer, Tess was practically born into singer/songwriter-dom, although her first musical inspiration in childhood was Slash before she turned to quieter sounds. She studied classical piano in Houston and in the mid-nineties was a guitarist in the band Sixpence None the Richer. It was on a European tour with this band that Tess met her German future ex-husband and settled in Gießen, where she still lives today. Her music is still deeply rooted in the American Singer/Songwriter tradition and sits somewhere between a, for once, non-depressive Jolie Holland, Sheryl Crow, and Aimee Mann.
Her most recent release "Femme Sole" is the captivating EP of a mature, independent, and versatile musician, stylistically located somewhere between Singer-Songwriter, Folk, Pop, and Country. "Femme Sole" is a small album without any blah blah, getting straight to the point. It showcases great musicality, maturity, and sensitivity, uncommonly heard elsewhere. No wonder a musician like STOPPOK took notice of Tess Wiley and has since regularly taken her on tour as a duo partner.
On June 14th, she will be performing with her band in Mörfelden-Walldorf: Tim Potzas (Guitar, Pedal Steel, Resonator Guitar), Christian Weiss (Bass), Thorsten Hannig (Drums), and Miriam Adameit (Vocals).
