Heartfelt acoustic ballads with a snarl and a smile

Recorded Nov. 15, 2016.

A bit about Burdick: A child of the Berkshires, Tess Burdick grew up singing gospel music. She still has photos of herself as a baby, sitting in her diaper on the kitchen floor of her family homes in Florida, Massachusetts, singing at the top of her lungs alongside her father. “It was basically a requirement,” Burdick says. At times, such constant musicality within the Burdick tribe felt like a chore — “when you’re a kid and your parents are doing it, it’s not as fun” — but now, she says, she can harmonize to anything. “So, I’m really grateful after all.”

Bonus: Check out an interview with Burdick during her Sessions set.
