Biography

Teressa's remarkable voice has been trained and nurtured from a young age through her involvement in gospel choirs. This influence is prominent as the strength and soul of gospel is clearly reflected in her vocals. By the tender age of 16 she was touring in a prominent gospel choir and performing live across the Caribbean.

Sadly, after the tragic death of her mother Teressa was no longer able to continue her tireless touring regime. However, instead she channelled all her energy and grief into writing and recording her own material. It is these tracks that have come to make up Teressa's debut album 'Days Ahead'.

The opening to track on Day's Ahead, 'No More', sees Teressa lay out her intentions; which although rooted in past pain, look to a brighter future and, in particular, new love. As well as including elements of her gospel heritage the album incorporates R 'n'B and electronica influences. The result is reminiscent of everyone from Jill Scott to Anastasia.

Teressa's eclectic taste is noticeable throughout the album. Whilst the likes of 'Sun Is Gonna Shine' overflows with energetic horns and falsetto, 'Sweet Little Lies' has a ska-flavoured bounce and 'Crazy Baby', with it's eye-catching video, returns to the classic R 'n' B sound but retains Teressa's edge and individuality.

It might seem that the story ends there but with a great album being produced by a fine young talent this is surely only the beginning for Teressa Edwards.

Already Teressa has done collaborations with rapper 'Doey Rock' label mates with E40 and nailed contracts with Vio Mobile to have her content distributed to all mobile networks. Further distribution deals includes Trailer Park Avenue and Audiosocket.

Lyrics

Sun Is Gonna Shine

Written By: Teressa Edwards

Sometimes our lives, may seem like it's gonna fall into pieces
But we know that we should not give in to all of our weakness.
Today we're up, tomorrow we're down
Don't you see things are changing
So don't give up, keep hanging on
Cause life is worth living

chorus:
The sun is gonna shine on me today
I know i can make it
The sun is gonna shine on me today
I know i can take it

Life, love, heartach and lost
I've been there I know the pain
But I'll just keep moving forward cause I've got to change things
See we hold the power in our hands and we can control it
Divided we fall but united we stand
So keep moving on yeah

(repeat chorus)
