"In the age of the independent artist, the Q4 is a great tool for producing content and creating. I love the size and simplicity of the camera. The audio quality is really impressive and powerful. Love it!"
Seattle-born singer/songwriter Tess Henley began training under the Suzuki Method for piano at age three and by age five was dissecting harmonies that even her mother—a singer by trade—found difficult. In 2008, Henley released her debut album, Easy To Love, and three years later won Budweiser’s National Superfest Summer Block Party competition. The single “Boy In The Window” from Henley's 2010 EP The Appetizer was featured on the soundtrack for the movie Hello I Must Be Going, starring Blythe Danner, and earned her a slew of awards, including the 2011 Independent Music Award for Best R&B Song and the 2012 International Song Competition for SoulTracks.com. Henley was also a top three finalist in the R&B category for the 2011 John Lennon Worldwide Songwriting Competition.
After hearing her music, Dice Raw from The Roots took Henley under his wing, bringing her to Philadelphia and introducing her to fellow producer Khari Mateen (The Roots, Jill Scott, J*DaVeY). Dice and Khari signed on to produce Tess’s debut album High Heels & Sneakers, recorded at legendary arranger Larry Gold’s “The Studio” and released in May 2013. Two songs from the album would go on to win prestigious awards: the single "Daydreaming," which garnered the2013 People’s Choice Vox Pop R&B/Soul Independent Music Award, and "Who Are You," named grand prize winner of the Show Me The Music Songwriting Contest. In March 2014, Henley was selected by Grammy-winning producer Don Was as the winner of Guitar Center's Singer-Songwriter Artist Discovery Program. She's currently in the studio working on a new EP with Was at the helm.
