Tess Roby’s explorative brand of electronic music is unique and visionary. Born in Toronto and now based in Montreal, Tess Roby’s songs ride the lines between synth pop, ambient and alternative folk structures, with emphasis on voice as instrument. Her lyrics drift between dreams and memories, and are brought to life by the rich intimacy of her voice. Circling loops of synth rise alongside interweaving vocal patterns, effortlessly creating minimal yet complex soundscapes. She released her sophomore album “Ideas of Space” in April 2022 as the inaugural release on her record label, SSURROUNDSS. She has collaborated with celebrated electronic artists such as Khotin, and Seb Wildblood, and is also a member of the Montreal synth-pop trio Dawn to Dawn.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.

We acknowledge the generous support of our partners and funders:
