FT. MISS TESS AND THE TALKBACKS

After releasing five albums of critically acclaimed original songs, the reigning “Queen of the Minor Key” is taking a moment to shake hands with the blues. Eilen Jewell’s new collection of twelve rare, bold blues and R&B covers adds to her potent mix of classic country, folk, and early rock ’n roll inspired original music. From the barrelhouse power
of 1920’s Bessie Smith to the electrified sounds of 1960’s Betty James, blues music has
always been a strong influence on the Boise, Idaho native.  
On Down Hearted Blues (September, 2017 Signature Sounds Recordings) Eilen and her
long-time road band (Jerry Miller, Shawn Supra, Jason Beek) rip through greasy versions
of dark blues like Charles Sheffield’s “It’s Your Voodoo Working”, Willie Dixon’s “You
Know My Love”, and Albert Washington’s “One of These Days”. The band also strips
down the sound, trading in drums and electric instruments for washboards, mandolins,
and banjos to cover songs like Memphis Minnie’s “Nothing in Rambling”, Bessie Smith’s
“Down Hearted Blues”, and Moonshine Kate’s “Poor Girl’s Story”.
For over a decade Eilen Jewell has taken her brand of sultry surf-noir and dynamic
Americana music to cities from Melbourne to Madrid to Manhattan. Her subtle but
powerful musical approach, combined with her warm stage presence and evocative original
lyrics, continue to gain her the loyalty of fans worldwide.


Miss Tess got her musical start at home in Maryland, her childhood nights ending in music. Her parents would sing
her to sleep with the gentle, tender sounds of American folk songs, occasionally interrupted by their 30s swing band
rehearsing in the basement. All grown up, Miss Tess & the Talkbacks regularly steal the show at venues with
something a little rowdier and more eclectic. Infused with classic country, rhythm & blues, swamp pop and early rock
n’ roll, she is an embodiment of everything that it still home grown in America. 
On her newest release, Baby, We All Know, Miss Tess continues to explore her own personal crossroads of
American roots music in a way that is fresh and personal. Always having a knack for catching timeless qualities in her
music, she provides a diligent mix of grooves and tempos while backed by top-notch musicians including guitar ace
and co-conspirator Thomas Bryan Eaton on telecaster and pedal steel. This year the new album was included in the
Top 100 played albums on the Americana Music Charts and received significant critical acclaim.
