Tess Roby on tour to support debut album “Beacon”

Fresh from her performance at Moogfest, the Montreal based photographer and indie dream pop music artist Tess Roby has embarked on a tour supporting Carla dal Forno – another Moogfest 2018 alumni.  Roby is promoting her first album ‘Beacon’ released April 20th. The tour continues (May 21st) in Washington, DC, before traveling to the west coast and returning back east for her debut New York City performance at Elsewhere on June 7th for this year’s Northside Festival.

An eight-year veteran of the Canadian Children’s Opera Company, she has been described “as utterly original, moving with a restless energy toward the sublime. Her sound betrays an intrepid longing to discover and explore, to reject convention and transcend cliché: Roby is a born traveler, absorbing everything she hears and making it new. Ethereal and crystalline, bathed sumptuously in synths, her music is heady, dreamy, singular — a transmission from parts unknown. The classical training and aesthetic omnivorousness combine like worlds colliding.”
