“I looked on the list of the Weekly Musicians to see who we had as performers and there was a new newlywed couple who were performing music that was just…beautiful. So I’d like to present to the stage Jay and Tessa Frost from Seattle, Washington. And I hope that when you hear their music, you catch a glimpse of the beauty of God.” – Nate Fredrick introducing Jay and Tessa at the first Weekly Musician Concert in Boston, MA.
“Wonderful! You two are quite the vibrant duo. Your very real energy is extremely fun and inspiring. It is SO AWESOME to hear you in my church each month. I am appreciative of your gracious humility and sweet friendliness. Thank you for sharing so freely.” – Susie Gill, Kent, WA.
Thank you for the comfort in your music. I think of Mary Baker Eddy’s hymns – Mother’s Evening Prayer, Shepherd Show Me, Brood O’er Us. There is something to be noticed there, and something to be recognized as invaluable right now in its immediacy and its universality. Messages of comfort, compassion, and Love. – Ryan Winslow, Boston, MA.
Inspired and inspiring! So lovely to hear all 3 of you sharing this with our wider church family. Your music always lifts my heart! – Anne Huckins, Kent, WA.
I love the CD and I can't wait to sing your lovely songs. Congratulations, you two! – Valerie White Williams, Seattle, WA.
Jay is forever on the lookout for a piano to play and Tessa has been singing since she was knee-high to a grasshopper. ￼
The duo began performing together in 2009 as budding jazz musicians in Seattle, WA, and as church musicians for a number of Christian Science branch churches in the area. With Jay’s energetically soulful piano and Tessa’s pure voice and profound lyricism, the singer/songwriter duo is an easy favorite. Their first album, Soulshine, is a moving collection of original solos growing right out of spiritual inspiration and Scripture. Tessa and Jay have been featured as Weekly Musicians at time4thinkers.com, as well as performing in the Weekly Musician Concert - "Called to Music"- at The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts and the Annual Meeting of the Christian Science Church in June 2012.
