uch like the person I am about to compare her to, TECLA is a first-generation New Yorker born in Hell’s Kitchen to Italian and Haitian immigrants. As a young girl, she was referred to as “a pianist prodigy.” She grew up and went on to be fluent in many different genres including Hip-Hop, Reggae, and Punk. Also, she’s been on tour with most of your fave alternative musicians like Chrisette Michele, Das Racist, Gordon Voidwell, Chairlift, and more. With a tone and backing that matches an early Kelis, TECLA checks women who seemingly are not capable of doing much without the help of a man.
