Sugar, sass, and a touch of spice adorns Nowhere Man, a sensual and seductive new track from LA based Oakland chanteuse Tessa Rae, who partners up with producer RANEN on the nimble aria. Her mahogany vocals on the R&B soul ballad are coy and classy, while Raden’s spry and sophisticated electronic soundscape carries a weightless trap bounce, etched out of luxuriant synths and airy undulating beats. Nowhere Man can also be streamed via Spotify, here.

Los Angeles based Oakland songstress Tessa Rae first captured our eager attention nearly a year ago with a sooty smoldering R&B pop song named Seventeen on which she lured us ever deeper into her music with sweet smoky vocals. On new single Young Blood, Tessa Rae takes a lofty pop approach in extreme contrast to that first gem. This vibrant rich aria is a lavish dazzler. It snaps and struts with bold confidence. Tessa explains that Young Blood is about “falling for someone older than you and realizing how hard it can be to relate at times”. Young Blood is the title track from Tessa Rae’s just released debut EP, out now, here.

It’s not often we get to hear Los Angeles electro R&B outfit RKCB re-imagine someone else’s song, and I’m loving the dreamy dissonance of their interpretation of Tessa Rae’s Seventeen. I’m already very much enraptured with the 22 year old Oakland born, Los Angeles raised singer songwriter’s bittersweet sultry tune. RKCB really brings out the Lana Del Rey like sadcore quality of the tune on their nebulously bouncy indie dance remix. It’s woozy electrifying and soupy scintillating.

22 year old Oakland born, Los Angeles raised singer songwriter Tessa Rae released her very first song several weeks ago, a smoldering R&B pop song overflowing with bittersweet sultriness. Seventeen’s sooty haze and Tessa Rae’s husky voice quickly brought to mind a combination of Lana Del Rey, The Weeknd, and BANKS. If you previously happened to miss the intoxicating introduction to the talented newcomer, today’s your lucky day, because Tessa Rae’s new video for Seventeen just dropped. Seventeen will be on Tessa Rae’s forthcoming mixtape, Two World.

Though her debut song is entitled Seventeen, exceptional pop newcomer Tessa Rae is a 22 year old Oakland born, Los Angeles raised singer songwriter. After spending years crafting her own tunes, she recently teamed up with executive producer Justin Warfield to work on her debut mixtape, one which she begins to unleash on the world with first release Seventeen. Tessa Rae’s husky vocals are phenomenally entrancing as she tells a bittersweet coming of age story about the internal conflict a lot of people face when it comes to love.

Seventeen is a simmering introduction to the emerging talent, one that will surely set the blog world afire even as it scorches our hearts with its sultry blend of trip hop and R&B pop.
