About This Project

Edmonton, AB

Brother and sister duo, Luke and Tess Pretty, may be young in age, but in fact, they are old pros. The pair cut their teeth busking and playing gigs in cafés, restaurants and festivals for more than a decade (with a bit of encouragement from their father, Greg, who used to drum for Bobby Cameron and Gaye Delorme). Since then, Tennyson’s instrumental tunes have been garnering immense praise, gaining fans among The Guardian and NPR, and leading them to a US and Canadian tour with Juno winner Ryan Hemsworth. In 2010 they released their first album, Diffusion, a collection of jazzified pop covers, followed by Nine Lives, a live album of jazz covers including Tingvall Trio’s Monster and Oz Noy’s Steroids.
