Meet Tessa Devine, an incredible one-woman band, multi-instrumentalist and international touring artist. On Saturday 16 September, Tessa will grace the Canberra Theatre stage and share her incredible music with the TEDxCanberra audience at our flagship event Momentum.


Tessa’s music is filled with soulful lyrics that paint a beautiful and unique picture of adventure, heartbreak, love, and self-discovery. Aside from her music, Tessa’s quirky personality makes her an absolute joy to watch on stage.


While covers of popular songs like Florence and the Machine’s You’ve Got The Love and Justin Bieber’s Cold Water showcase her diverse musical repertoire and penchant for making every song her own, it’s in her original work where Tessa’s music truly shines.


Her debut EP “Wild” released in March 2017 features four incredibly written and produced songs about the unpredictable life of an adventurer. In “Wild”, Tessa sings of stories that are profound, honest and uniquely her own. Accompanied by percussive guitar rhythms, incredible harmonies and impressive looping techniques, her songs blend indie folk pop with surfy tribal roots, producing a sound unlike anything heard before.


Tessa has performed in an impressive array of shows and festivals including the Cygnet Folk Festival, Bendigo Blues, Mount Beauty Music Festival, Roots Festival right across to EUR to play throughout the UK and Slovenia. We are very excited to welcome Tessa to the TEDxCanberra stage in September.


Don’t miss out on a spectacular performance by the talented Tessa Devine at TEDxCanberra Momentum on Saturday 16 September 2017.
