Mr. Reynolds is a veteran in the business and has worked on projects from many top selling artists, including The Roots, Kelly Rowland, Lyfe Jennings, and many others. Tess’ new project promises to be a game changer. 'The Name Is Tess' EP is now available for purchase on iTunes, CD Baby, and Bandcamp.
