Product description

Product Description

Tess Of The Circle is a British independent collective that focuses on the songs of male songwriter Tess Jones and his 'circle' of participating musicians. With a new album line up for 2013, the album Thorns introduces shades of 70 s electric rock into the established style of acoustic guitar riffs and biographical lyrics that had previously seen Tess gain widespread critical recognition. Mixing intimacy with intent, this evolution of style came primarily from touring.

This circle includes people like producer Chris Potter (BRlT Award winner, The Verve "Urban Hymns", Richard Ashcroft, Rolling Stones) and a band of internationally recognised recording musicians. Yet, although the 'Thorns' album credits read like a major label release, it was created and recorded independently. It's testament to the songwriting of this emerging artist that such prominent people were willing to get involved. "To play alongside some of the people I grew up listening to has been nothing short of inspirational", Tess explains, "It's made me feel stronger as a writer and a performer, I'm indebted to them all".

Review

It will be interesting to see whether those of a certain age who harp on about the demise of rock are prepared to give a new artist like Tess a chance. Back in the day Thorns would have undoubtedly propelled Tess onto a level that would have seen him selling out theatre venues in the UK. The musical world has since shifted on its axis, but those baby boomers who satiate their hunger with anniversary re-issues of 1970s albums would be advised to give Thorns a listen. They could be pleasantly surprised - **** --Getreadytorock, June 2013

From the opening chords of Better Days where Tess sings I can breath these days.... over a symphonic wash of strings & driving drums, the production & arrangements on this album are nothing short of perfection. --Acoustic Magazine.
