Sydney Guitar Festival and The Golden Age present


with Sorcha Albuquerque and Lisathe

Tesse is the collaborative project of Sydney based singer-songwriter Tom Stephens. 

With a sound characterised by frigid, full-toned ebbs of acoustic and baritone guitar, stitched together by steady, hypnotic rhythms, Tesse released their debut full-length album How It All Unfolds in June, 2018 to a warm reception.

Lead singles "I'll Tell You in the Morning", "Keep It Simple" and "Earthworms" have seen a wealth of support with all three songs being added to rotation on FBi Radio, as well as receiving spins on Triple J and Double J. The accompanying music videos received airtime on ABC's Rage as well as MTV, with the clip for "Keep It Simple" receiving their coveted 'Upload of the Week' feature.

Maintaining a busy live schedule in 2018, Tesse have captivated audiences with a slew of impressive support slots including Oh Mercy, Jack River, Angie McMahon, and Ryan Downey.
