She takes you on her very personal journey through her life as an NYC native born to Haitian and Italian parents turned outcast to freak to performer. TECLA has gone from being a classically trained child pianist to writing and performing for hip-hop/reggae bands, punk/rock bands and electronic/funk bands. Exploring her talents on a variety of synth keyboards she discovered and developed more styles than one can imagine. TECLA is known for her genre-mixing melodic compositions, danceable-beats, and boundary-breaking lyricism. Having created a signature “electronic-tropical-pop” sound and identity for herself, TECLA’s “Strangers In Masks” has been described as “SWV on acid”, “the rocktronica black cinderella”, and “Buddy Holly meets Pagliacci”.
It is hard to think of anything that TECLA cannot do, which makes you want to be intimate with her strange masked mind that much more. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
