Tess Dunn hails from northern California. A seven-year veteran of West Coast Vans Warped Tour performances with a growing national fanbase, Tess has released three albums of original alternative pop punk music, and released her first EP under T3TRA in October 2016. Reviewers and fans have described Tess/T3TRA as fearless, a creative wunderkind, a dynamic performer, and a compelling example of gritty girl power. 

Tess’ most recent EP, Polarity, recorded under the name T3TRA, marks a genre shift that incorporates a more electronic sound. Recorded with Noah Shain - with whom she shares writing credits - at White Buffalo Studio in Los Angeles, Polarity was released October 1, 2016. Polarity, provides a rich and dynamic sound that moves beyond electro/synthpop thanks to deep sonic undercurrents and brutally honest lyrics. As T3TRA notes, “Sex, pills, cheap thrills: I write songs about the things nobody and everybody likes to talk about.” With driving beats, hints of retro synth and T3TRA’s signature raspy vocals, Polarity provides a strong dose of danceable angst.

T3TRA is endorsed by Onstage Stands and Lanikai Ukuleles.
