Hamza Tufail Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 (edited) Tessanne Chin Thread Powerful vocalist from Kingston, Jamaica who has a versatile vocal range and perfect pitch, described as "Physically incapable of ever missing a note." #TeamAdam #TeamTessanne YouTube | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Apple Music | Wikipedia | Soundcloud | Amazon Music | Last.fm Channel | Spotify | Pandora | TikTok | TIDAL | Deezer | Discogs Quote Tessanne is the fresh soulful voice of a new generation of Jamaican musical talent. Her sultry fusion of Dancehall and Reggae with edgy rock riffs mixed with the honest, heart felt and conscious lyrics she pens herself create a musical style that is uniquely her own. Her exceptional vocal talent and her exotic looks give her unmistakable stage appeal. At the age of 24, Tessanne has already opened on stage for such musical greats as Patti Labelle, Gladys Knight, Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack., Atlantic Star, Boyz 2 men, Keyshia Cole Damian Marley, Ky-Mani Marley, Air Supply, Mary J Blige and Neyo amongst many others. She also toured the world as a backup singer with the Reggae Legend Jimmy Cliff for three years and has collaborated with artists such as Ky-Mani Marley, Diana King, Wayne Marshall Peter Morgan (of Morgan’s Heritage) her Sister Tami Chynn, and was one of the featured artists on the Saggy and Friends “Save a Life” video and song in aide of the Bustamante Children’s Hospital. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Tessanne was introduced to music at a very early age by her parents. Her mother was the trumpeter/singer in her band called the "Carnations" and her father was the drummer. Tessanne started her stage career when she was 6 years old with Cathy Levy’s ”Little People and Teen Players Club” one of Jamaica's top performing arts schools Tessanne learned firsthand about cultural diversity when she moved to England at age 12. She devoted a lot of her time to song writing to express her feelings about her new life in what was to her, a completely different world. Upon her return to Jamaica, Tessanne joined the Jamaican Rock Band, "Mile High" and performed for crowds at numerous local venues including Jazz fest, Rock fest, and RETV Unplugged. "It was during this time that I came out of my shell vocally and performance wise, I learned how to really and truly sing in a different way.... my way. It was an amazing experience because I also realized my lifelong dream-- to sing my own songs...I have something to say and it was a great release for me to share that part of myself with others". Tessanne decided to continue on the path of singing her own songs; she left Mile High to pursue a solo career and work on the tracks for her upcoming debut album. With Producer, and Friend, Rudy Valentino, Paul Kastick and many more. Songwriting for her is a very real, organic process...just some paper a pen and her acoustic guitar. A purist at heart, she believes there is life and magic in live music that can't be duplicated using computer-generated tracks. "It is very important to me that my songs can sound amazing with a big band or orchestra, but just as powerful and touching with just me and my guitar." So far she is making waves in the industry, determined to make a difference with her music, and to leave her mark on everyone who has the opportunity to hear her music or witness her Live shows, to name a few such as The air Jamaica Jazz and blues festival 2006, The Deck, Carlos café, The Port Royal music festival, ABC Slim Trax , Welcome to Jamrock , Shaggy and friends benefit concert, Blue Beat Unplugged, Sumfest and was given the great and wonderful privilege to perform for her Jamaican athletes when she was asked to be part of the Puma / Jamaican Olympic team Closing Party in Beijing China . It has been her pleasure and a dream come true to also perform at her very own show “Arabian Night’ and most recently “Tessanne In Concert” and not to mention The countless amount of shows She’s Done around the world. From the cover Of BASIA Magazine to the pages of Sky Writings along with many other forms of media to Air Jamaica’s very own in-flight programme “Island Stylee” there is no denying her unquestionable appeal. Tessanne credits God with being her greatest influence in her life and for blessing her with the strength and determination to pursue her dream career in music. Creatively, she draws on the strengths of a diverse group of musicians including Skunk Anansie, Pat Benatar, Diana King, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Mahalia Jackson, Bob Marley, Barbara Streisand and many more. With such powerful influences to inspire her, Tessanne is creating her own music with her own bold signature style. Her Debut single ”Hideaway” was and still is undoubtedly the best launching pad for the career of this young New Talent and with it’s success has come the ability to continue to do the music that she believes in and with the heavy rotation it received on Jamaican radio as well as select stations in New York and Europe it is clear that the world believes too. Both the single and its music video have had a groundbreaking impact on the Jamaican music Industry. Hideaway was just the beginning followed by the edgy , fun and outspoken Rock/Dancehall single “Black Books” Showcasing her versatility, then came the message by the powerful and influential “Messenger” the driving anthem that showed she didn’t just have a voice but a message to share with her fellow artists her people and the world. ~ PRE-VOICE PERFORMANCES ~ ~ ON-SHOW PERFORMANCES ~ ~ Competitive Performances ~ Blind Audition - Try (By P!nk) Battle: Next To Me (By Emeli Sandé) Knockout: Stronger (By Kelly Clarkson) Live Playoffs: Many Rivers To Cross (By Jimmy Cliff) Top 12: My Kind of Love (By Emeli Sandé) Top 10: If I Were Your Woman (Gladys Knight & the Pips) Top 8: Underneath It All (No Doubt ft.
