Tessy-Lou Williams

Tessy Lou Williams

In September 2019 we were thrilled to host artists from the Texas Heritage Songwriter’s Association and the Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.

Tessy Lou Williams was born to sing. Western by birth, star by design. A shining light sequestered beneath the shadow of the majestic Tobacco Root Mountains. Born in Willow Creek, Montana, to Kenny and Claudia Williams of the band Montana Rose, music was not only the family business, but a love shared by her parents, her siblings and the creative community that resided all around this rural Montana town. Writing and music were part of life’s lessons that Tessy Lou absorbed daily. Like clear mountain sunshine. Her music, nurtured through the years by the writers, artist, musicians and the western culture that surrounded her, was whispering in her ear.
