About Tessa:
Growing with her music, each song by Tessa Brown is a piece of one transformation. She will keep your worries company and calm them in one breath.
From the town of Farmington, Connecticut, Tessa is struck by the authenticity of nature. Her work implements its beautiful messes to convey life as she sees it. Alchemy, Undone, her debut EP, does exactly that in its celebration of change. She currently attends Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, but can be seen all over Connecticut this summer. Join her before she ventures back to the city, pen in hand.
