Teaching was an important step in the organic evolution of Tess Goodwin into an artist and musician.

“Classrooms of children were my first audience, but the perfect first audience, because they were full of praise, belief and optimism. I was a teacher, but through that relationship I learnt so much about following curiosities and not being limited by self-doubt. I witnessed how influential my music was and it became a very simple thought, I love this, so I’m going to follow it.” 

Tess is based in Wellington. Her new single 'Grace' is due for release on June 11th 2018.
