Seattle’s finest Tess Henley prefers to think of herself ‘as a songwriter who strives to write musically rich songs.’ Jazzy, smooth, emotional, soulful, are just a few of the words that went through my head the first time I saw one of Henley’s performance on YouTube. She’s more than just a wonderful singer; she’s the kind of artist that reaches the soul of her listeners. Songs like “Complicated,” “Boy in the Window” and “What You Won’t Do For Love” are three of my favorites that invoke a soothing atmosphere. Tess is truly one in a million.
It’s hard to believe that such a talent was around for some time now without me noticing but now that I have I can’t help but want to know more. And like the few just discovering Tess Henley, I’m sure they’re just as taken aback as I am. Check out “Complicated” below:
