Bio

Tess Barr is a vocalist, songwriter and guitar player from The Pacific Northwest and has been singing her entire life. Growing up in the 60s listening to country and western music, Tess decided that rock and roll was really more her style but always felt empty until she discovered the blues in the late 70s and has never turned back. Tess has fronted many bands since, from solo gigs to large bands, such as The Chevy’s, Coast Motel, Blues Side Out, Right Hand Drive and The Tess Barr Blues Band for over 30 years. Tess is has also been a featured NW Woman and Blues artist and guest starred with many artists. Her beloved blues heroes Koko Taylor, Katie Webster, Luann Barton, Janis Joplin, Elmore James, Junior Wells, Muddy Waters and Hound Dog Taylor heavily influence Tess’ singing and songwriting style. With vocals that give you “chicken skin”, “Tess and her band can take any blues song and make it their own”. Look for her long anticipated CD Do What You Want to be released in 2011.
