Tei Shi is the sobriquet of Valerie Teicher, the Brooklyn-based, Argentinian-born songstress who’s been generating a ton of buzz as of late. Having inhabited Buenos Aires, Bogota, Vancouver and Boston at various stages throughout her life, her multicultural background is reflected in the complexity of her music and the texture of her voice. She recently released her first single, “Bassically” with the Mom + Pop imprint Mermaid Avenue. The compelling track is confected of high notes, low tones, and lush melodies — all backed up by Valerie’s soft reverberated vocals and a strong synth bassline. Stream this gem below.
For the locals, Tei Shi will be performing tomorrow night at DC’s U Street Music Hall with Gems and VÉRITÉ as part of the All Things Gold concert series.
