Miss Tess has just released Live Across the Mason Dixon Line, a true documentation the group’s extensive tour history. The album features two live shows – one from the Regatta Bar in Cambridge, Massachusetts and one from Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia. This release proves to be a valiant effort by the band, Miss Tess & The Bon Ton Parade, to blur the lines that once clearly dictated style, genre, and location.Stemming from the truest meaning of the now overused word “Americana”, the band pushes their influences into the current music scene with something totally fresh and soulfully timeless. The skilled musicianship of the quartet combined with Tess’s heartfelt songwriting and powerful stage presence creates a live experience that is more interesting and engaging then most by popular musicians today. It’s quality music you can’t define in one sentence.

Miss Tess continues to tear up the national roots scene with the Bon Ton Parade. 2011/12 marks a heavy touring schedule for Miss Tess as she tours throughout the US, Canada, the UK, and soaks up life in the Big Apple.
