Bio


In the relative isolation of northern BC small town life, Theresa Pasaluko has spent many hours in solitude, singing, playing guitar and writing songs that reflect on life and its various casualties, complications and accomplishments. Stirring up an audience of its own, Theresa's sulfurous voice conducts emotion like copper wire conducts electricity and her honest and dynamic intimate songwriting and guitar playing uses roots, alternative, folk, and rock influences to expose that wire.

At the age of 24, having honed her craft on BC folk festival stages, at pubs, bars and coffee houses around Canada from Quebec's Blacksheep Inn to the Edge of the World Music Festival in Haida Gwaii. She has opened the stage and collaborated with Canadian luminaries such as Alex Cuba, Fred Eaglesmith, The Deep Dark Woods, and Rachelle VanZanten.

After writing her first handful of songs, Theresa traveled to the Yukon to record with Jordy Walker. Twelve songs were originally recorded though only three were chosen to be released on her 2008 self titled Demo CD. While later living in Vancouver Theresa continued to work on and recently release her first full length Album “Sound of Town”, recorded at “The Garage" with producer, multi-instrumentalist Jordy Walker (Kim Barlow, Crash the Car, Erica Mah). The Album has received airplay from; CBC Radio, Shore 104 fm, and Evolution Vancouver, The Peak, and Smithers Community Radio. As well as recognition from song writing contests; The joyful folksy poppy track “More of the Times” placed in the top 20 finalists for Vancouver's Shore 104 fm's 2010 acoustic song search, and received honorable mention in the 2010 Ken Whitely Song writing contest.

Theresa is connected with many musicians to provide extra accompaniment for her concerts. She puts forth her love and ability to connect with audiences for intimate, playful, and memorable performances. In 2013 Theresa graduated from Victoria Conservatory of music with a diploma in vocal jazz, which lead her to join Victoria's 11 piece Funk Band "The New Groovement" as their lead Singer and Lyricist.
