The Young Diva Tess is a name you may or may not be reading for the first time, but it will not be the last.

Diva is not a word attached to her name because of a bad attitude, it’s her aggressive creativity combined with her raw then polished talent and undeniable sex appeal that gave her that nickname. Simply, the goal is to redefine Rhythm and Blues.

Writing and performing her own music, Tess rejects the cookie cutter sounds that have flooded the R&B scene and instead incorporates Rock, Hip Hop, and soul, tapping into her Latin roots to interpret the most powerful elements of each.

A New York native, the Hip Hop in her shows itself on the freestyles she records for DJs across the world, including NYC’s own DJ Camilo. Though she admits as a perfectionist she often wants to go back and edit songs, Tess (The Young Diva) has managed to get several promotional songs aired on New York’s Hot 97 FM radio station over the past year and has toured the world with artists like Musiq Soulchild, Deemi, JT Taylor (of Kool and the Gang), and Atlantic Star.

As homage to her love of timeless music The Young Diva is currently in the studio with super producer DJ Static on a project called Tess goes Jodeci. Look out for upcoming live performances and links to teasers.
