Lolla Indie Spotlight: Tessa Violet

Posted in News on July 8, 2019

Despite having already established herself on YouTube, indie-pop singer/songwriter and blogger Tessa Violet wanted to challenge herself with additional creative outlets. Knowing very little about the music industry, she released her first single, “Crush,” which generated 50+ million streams independently in under 6 months. After that almost overwhelming success, Violet released her second single titled, “Bad Ideas,” at the end of 2018 with similarly explosive results. With two hits under her belt and over one million active listeners monthly, Violet sold out her first ever headline shows, becoming one of Billboard’s “10 New Festival Artists to look out for in 2019.” Violet’s most ambitious and creative track titled, “I Like (The Idea of) You,” is out now.
