Recorded between Paris, LA, Indiana and Kurow, and produced by Steve Harrop, Tess Liautaud packs an emotional punch across 10 stripped back guitar tracks, touching on everything from nostalgia and grief, to finding a sense of belonging. The first few bars of album opener ‘Lighthouse’ introduces listeners to a melancholy side of Tess Liautaud before flipping a switch into a bittersweet optimism that carries you through the rest of the collection. Enjoy the lovely, lilting tunes and finger-plucked melodies of Tess Liautaud…

There is an old soul quality that will appeal to listeners searching for stories of the road, of the mind, of letting go and new beginnings. Vulnerable, sometimes innocent, always raw. These songs appeal to listeners looking for melodies, beautiful guitar sounds, a pure voice carrying the stories. a steady band bringing color to the music, head swaying beats and hooks, giving full power to her voice. And some quirky details in the songwriting, deep but also full of references of where Tess comes from musically.
