A little background information... The early musical years for Theresa J were filled with flute, piano, bass and drum lessons before the passion for the visual arts took her to New York City to attend Parsons School of Design. Although she dabbled in music while in New York, it wasn\'t until a few years later, in Chicago, that music really became a part of the life. For years she played out solo in the clubs and bars around Chicago until life took a detour and she spent her remaining years in Chicago underground writing lyrics. WarAlarm... In 2006, with a change of environment and surroundings, Theresa finally had the ability to continue with her music. Inspired by our culture, in March 2008 she released an ep WarAlarm for the political election season that speaks from the perspective of observations, not necessarily opinions. She wrote, played, programmed, engineered, produced, edited, mixed and designed the effort which musically has been described as psychedelic electro folk/rock. For the months of August/Sept. 2008, KKGN Green 960 in San Francisco picked Theresa J for their Artist Spotlight (before, during and after the DNC convention) understanding the strength of her lyrics and the truth she speaks.
