An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special : Miss Tess “I Can’t Help Myself”

Miss Tess and her band, The Talkbacks, brought her original “Classic country and honky-tonk, southern rhythm & blues, New Orleans jazz and swing, and sounds of swamp pop and early rock n’ roll music” to the Blue Plate stage. This tune, “I Can’t Help Myself” is on her latest release, “Baby, We All Know”. Previous description aside, Miss Tess is hard to categorize, and she says “Many times after the show somebody will come up to compliment the band and ask me what kind of music we just played. After mumbling through a few different genres I usually just tell them it’s my music and hope they enjoyed the show”.

The Talkbacks are Thomas Bryan Eaton on guitar (also co-producer of the new album), Geoff Henderson on bass, and Andrew Guterman on drums. Find out more about Miss Tess and her music at:…
