About Miss Tess & The Talkbacks
Miss Tess got her musical start at home in Maryland, her childhood nights ending in music. Her parents would sing her to sleep with the gentle, tender sounds of American folk songs, occasionally interrupted by their 30s swing band rehearsing in the basement. Tess studied piano as a child, and continued on as a teenager to take up the guitar and singing, and eventually began her own studies in early jazz and blues. All grown up and currently living in Nashville, Miss Tess and her band regularly steal the show at venues with something a little rowdier and more eclectic. Infused with classic country and honky-tonk, southern rhythm & blues, New Orleans jazz and swing, and sounds of swamp pop and early rock n’ roll, she is an embodiment of everything that it still home-grown in America.
About Starcrossed Losers
Starcrossed Losers is a Portland, ME-based songwriting project and folk/rock band led by Pennsylvania native Kyle Morgan, who cut his teeth playing in dive bars, rock clubs, and festivals all around central/eastern PA. In 2013, Morgan moved to Portland, ME to join internationally touring folk-trio Tumbling Bones. After the band’s amiable break-up in 2015, Morgan returned to his “electric” roots and formed Starcrossed Losers, borrowing the name from his 2013 full-length release. Ranging from as few as two members to as many as seven, Losers’ dynamic performances vary in style from stripped-down acoustic balladry and lovelorn parlor laments to old-school rock’n’roll, gritty gypsy-blues, and distorted proto-punk. Kyle Morgan and Bridgette Semler (the vocal heart of Starcrossed Losers) will be performing Kable House Presents as a duo, allowing for an unobscured experience of their lyrical imagery, storytelling, and inventive vocal harmonies.
