Tess formed "Sister Savage" with herself in 2007, when she first heard about the RPM Challenge. Until this time, she had never written a song nor played an instrument. Not much has changed.
Mainly Tess, but occasionally she traps a musician, ties them up (some like this actually) and then pays them off. It really works.

Many thanks to my friends Natalie Doig, who allowed me to use part of her poetry for the verse lyric of Cathedrals, Geoffrey Armes for writing and performing the music of In Your Hands, and Steve Bone for the game-changing clarinet of Little Turncoats (though he recorded this part way back in 2009!).
