Raspy Garage Punk Concert: Singer-Songwriter Tess Dunn | San Jose

Raspy-voiced Santa Cruz singer-songwriter Tess Dunn is holding a residency at Streetlight Records in San Jose for a total of five performances from January 3 to February 21, 2015. 

With lyrics dark yet hopeful, Dunn plays a range of songs that hit with the energy of Blink 182 and the emotional intensity of a Fiona Apple ballad.” A talented pianist and keytarist with a dynamic stage presence, Tess is a musical warrior.

A five-year veteran of the San Francisco Vans Warped Tour who was named one of the top Bay Area performers by a leading S.F. radio station, Tess has already released two albums of her original music. Her latest, “Honesty Box,” was said by Eric Berg of KUSP to have “a great caffeinated garage sound not too dissimilar to the punk bands of 30 years ago.” Wrote another reviewer, “
