I’ve had my eye on Amsterdam’s Tessa Rose Jackson ever since she released the unbelievably catchy “Change Time” which was featured on a German IKEA commercial last year. Unbelievably, the Dutch songstress is only 20 years old, writing, producing and playing music way beyond her years. If you can picture a slightly more poppier Fleet Foxes and a slightly more accessible version of Feist, then you’ll find Tessa sitting in between.
“All The King’s Horses” is the second official single from a debut album expected to be released this year, and is just as much fun as the rest of her work. Syncopated rhythms, handclaps, gorgeous vocals and a chorus that will echo in your mind for days make this single an absolute winner. It kind of reminds me of those really catchy Christmas tunes!
So much to like about this young woman and she has such a great attitude. We’ll be seeing a lot more of her in 2013.
