Katy Tessman, with her son Sweet Lou
Minneapolis-based, Katy Tessman is an optimistic and approachable singer-songwriter with a voice full of the wisdom she’s gained through breast cancer survival, heartbreak, and motherhood. Her powerful vocals and rhythmic approach to guitar (or mandolin) express a straight-from-the-heart songwriting style that moves passionately over diverse emotional and musical terrain.
Katy’s son, Sweet Lou will be joining her on lead guitar. His sensitive style adds flavors of Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, and Stevie Ray Vaughan to his mom’s original folk-rock-americana songs.
