Away from the road, Tess’ Tanglewood is always nearby…
“I write all my songs on acoustic before I take them in to the band to amplify them and the TW-15 is the guitar I tend to pick up to write on. It’s such a comfortable guitar to play with lovely bright tones. And although our new album AMPLIFY has a rock foundation you can still hear my Tanglewood jangling through on tracks such as Believe and This Higher Ground'” – Tess Jones

Some very hot UK Talent! TESS OF THE CIRCLE from their excellent new album AMPLIFY.
A startlingly heartfelt yet world-weary vocal. Tess Of The Circle are clearly poised to engender the affection of fans of sixties, seventies and nineties rock.

Some artists wear their influences on their sleeve, others like Tess Jones’ from Tess Of The Circle absorb them as they grow up, thereby creating a style of their own. A style that sways from folk to rock to punk, but always leads to a strong chorus, The passion never falters.
Not to be ignored.
