Teresa's intimacy with God shines through her music. She brings a wealth of musical experience and uses it to draw people into God's presence.

A voice that commands. CCM may have found their next powerhouse vocalist.
"I see a woman, crying out to God. Praying for rain, believing it will never come. I hear the Lord saying, "I am faithful.""
After spending an entire year writing an album solely dedicated to God's faithfulness, this word—spoken at a conference of 1000 people—pierced my heart like a white hot arrow. I was the only one who began to sob in the entire room. The jarringly intimate reality when Jesus crashes into our brokenness and suffering everything changes. Only walking in the promises of God, I wrote Faithful to speak life to all the barren circumstances of my life. Like the woman in Isaiah 54, this album rejoices in the breakthrough that is yet to come. He is faithful.
Teresa’s journey of faith and music began in earnest when she felt a call from God at 16 years old saying, “I desire for you to sing for me and for them.” Through her music, she openly shares the struggles she has faced in this walk and the deep truth of God’s continued faithfulness. Her refreshing honesty and vibrant music inspire hope and courage for what is to come.
Her newest EP, Faithful, communicates the joy found in waiting for God’s triumph. Sonically, it is a joyful, powerful, and upbeat 'summer worship' album. Robert Venable (Stars Go Dim, Twenty One Pilots, Kelly Clarkson) and Jake Jones (As We Ascend, We As Human) teamed up for the production. Songs and lyrics are a beautiful collaboration between Teresa and several notable writers and musicians (Leo Ahlstrom, Jake Jones, Dana Catherine, His Own).
Teresa is a worship leader, speaker and singer/songwriter. She has played a number of major festivals and conferences (SXSW, NCYC, Abbeyfest) and opened for national acts Sidewalk Prophets and Stars Go Dim. Teresa has led worship for Encounter Ministries, Heart of the Father Ministries (Unbound), The Culture Project, and worked with national speakers Fr. Michael Gaitley (33 Days to Morning Glory), Archbishop Chaput, and Relevant Radio's Fr. Richard Simon. Her second Christian EP, Faithful, led to Teresa being featured on New Release Today's 'New Artist Watch' for June 2018. After 5 years in Philadelphia, Teresa and her husband, James, recently relocated to Brighton, Michigan to lead worship with Encounter Ministries.
Totally Inspiring! What a talented artist and blessing to the music industry.
