Born in England, the daughter of Trinidadian and English parents, award-winning New York-based vocalist, composer and lyricist, Tessa Souter, who cites Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Sandy Denny, Leon Thomas, Youn Sun Nah, Jon Lucien, Andy Bey, Milton Nascimento, and mentors Mark Murphy and Sheila Jordan as influences, imbues a mix of jazz and stunning originals with the soul and passion of flamenco, Indian and Middle Eastern music. Voted a Rising Star in the Downbeat Critics Polls two years in a row, Souter’s “truly beautiful voice” (Sirius Radio) and penchant for exploring strikingly beautiful music mostly untouched by other singers has set her apart as “one of the finest and most fearless vocalists to have emerged in recent years.” (Boston Globe)
