Biography
“Tess is a true believer in the church of rock’n'roll. She’s got great taste and is really sharp. I got lucky again!“
- Alan McGee

Tess Parks is a musician and photographer born and raised in Toronto. The granddaughter and daughter of musicians and an art school dropout, she moved to London at seventeen years of age to pursue music and to study photography. She has played as a solo act for the past four years between the UK and Canada.

After overstaying her visit in London, she reluctantly moved back to Toronto on the advice from one of her heroes, Alan McGee. 

Early in 2013, she released a self-funded EP Work All Day/Up All Night, which was recorded in Toronto. At the same time, Tess began demoing songs for what would become her debut album, which were also available via Bandcamp.

“I was brought up on Bob Dylan and Nirvana and The Beatles and Rolling Stones and Zeppelin and all that good shit,” says Tess. She’s hung out with the likes of the Dandy Warhols and met Alan McGee in London. “We stayed in touch, that was it really. I just got so lucky,” adds Tess. “I love Oasis, Jesus and Mary Chain... He’s affiliated with all of my favourite musicians.”

Tess Parks’s debut record, Blood Hot, was released on 18 November 2013.
