Jay is forever on the lookout for a piano to play and Tessa has been singing since she was knee-high to a grasshopper. ￼
The duo began performing together in 2009 as budding jazz musicians in Seattle, WA, and as church musicians for a number of Christian Science branch churches in the area. With Jay’s energetically soulful piano and Tessa’s pure voice and profound lyricism, the singer/songwriter duo is an easy favorite. Their first album, Soulshine, is a moving collection of original solos growing right out of spiritual inspiration and Scripture. The duo has performed as guest musicians at The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA.
Tessa E. B. Frost is a versatile singer with forays into folk, bluegrass, musical theater, opera, and jazz. She’s performed as a soloist at various churches and venues in the United States, but got her solo start in La Musa Cafe in Cusco, Peru. She is a natural performer with an easy way of singing from the heart. Her voice is pure and true, a window full of shimmering light. Listen for a moment to hear the clear tone and soulful stylings of her musical influences: Melody Gardot, Whitney Houston, Ella Fitzgerald, Blossom Dearie, The Wailin’ Jennys, and Joni Mitchell.
Jay Holcomb Frost is an inspirational music composer and jazz pianist. The piano/voice compositions that he writes with his wife are published here on Watchfire Music and have been performed in church services across the country. Jay’s jazz piano chops take him to corporate events, private parties, weddings, and restaurants across the DC area, and he can occasionally be found in community theater.
