BIO

“A remarkable journey to the interior of the human heart.”
— AllAboutJazz

“Souter’s crystalline contralto and impeccable phrasing are mighty arrows in her quiver, but it is her ability to become one with a song that enables her to score successive bull’s eyes … An exquisite exercise in seductive spell casting.”Jazz Times

“Tessa Souter is a natural born singer. She really moves me.” Sheila Jordan, NEA

Critically-acclaimed jazz vocalist Tessa Souter’s gorgeous voice and penchant for exploring music mostly untouched by other vocalists has set her apart as “one of the few exceptional standouts in the crowded field of female jazz singers,” (Los Angeles Times). A protégé of jazz vocal legend Mark Murphy, who called her “very moving”, a “true musician” and “an extraordinary talent,” Souter clearly knows her way around the American Songbook, but the Anglo-Trinidadian has also established herself as an uncommonly creative arranger and songwriter. She has five albums, including two Sunday Times Top Ten Best Jazz Albums of the Year, and performs all over the world, wowing audiences with her striking authenticity, charismatic stage presence and sparkling humor.
