Tenci at Mohawk

By: Laurie Gallardo

Songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Jess Shoman confronts the question eternal: Why do we not go for the excess of love we deserve? Or, in her own words, “What the hell?”

As Chicago-based music artist Tenci, Shoman celebrates self-rejuvenation on her second album A Swollen River, A Well Overflowing, an interplay of multiple instruments, and words and ideas from Shoman’s journal, trying to comprehend what this journey is all about. Tenci’s tour brings her to Austin for a show tomorrow night, Tuesday April 11, at Mohawk on Red River, on the inside stage. Austin-based artist and AMM fave Egaux Sells opens the show. Doors at 7 p.m.
