Tessa is only allowed to sing during our walks in the fields these days. It doesn’t bother me and there is no one else around. The only noise I don’t like is the smoke alarm going off when Tessa burns the toast or something. That hurts my ears 🙁 ….. Tessa’s singing is not quite as bad as that ….

Anyway, these are some of the artists currently featured on Tessa’s Playlist:

Julez Hamilton
Tessa particularly gives the song ‘Oh Sam’ a bit of welly, especially the bit that goes if I can’t have you, then nobody will
Not sure who she is thinking about ….

The Essential Dixie Chicks
I have a feeling that if Tessa had fulfilled her dream as a singer/songwriter, she would have loved to have been a Dixie Chic. I wonder if they would have loved Tessa?

Fascinating Aida
This is Tessa’s favourite Girl Band and Tessa can’t wait to get her FA fix when they come to Jersey’s Opera House in September 2014. I think she must have been the first person to buy tickets. We always have a little dance around the fields to some of their tracks. We particularly like Down with the Kids and A Brand New Me.

FA’s Dillie Keene and Adele Anderson performing with Sarah-Louise Young in 2012. They are currently on the Charm Offensive tour with Liza Pullman – pictured below.

Gregory Porter
One of Tessa latest downloads, so not quite word perfect yet.

Si Cranstoun
I think even I am word perfect when it comes to ‘Caught in the Moonlight’! Tessa is really caught up in this guy’s story. 38 year old Busker to a million pound recording deal seemingly over night. Good for him. Tessa says that ‘Caught in the Moonlight’ is a song she would have liked to have written.

Before Tessa went to New York earlier this year we walked our way though all the Maltilda The Musical songs. Well, she was lucky enough to see the show on Broadway.

Ahhhh well, I am off now …. Da da da da da, da da da da da, caught in the moonlight, quarter to midnight, don’t have to be like some Cinderella! …………….
