Teressa "BluesBabe" Brewer
"Teressa" Brewer, aka The Blues Babe. Unquestionably, she is one of the most versatile and prolific artists in the business. She is a poet, a producer, a writer, a composer, a vocalist, a musician, a media personality, Blues/Jazz pioneer, an activist, and a celebrity in her own right. Cousin of Leanne Womack and Roy Rogers and a direct descendant of one of the pioneering families of Missouri, particularly the Ozarks; the Womacks, Ms. Brewer was and raised in Oregon. She has spent most of her life performing through out the US and Canada, particularly Las Vegas. While she can sing any style, she is best known as a blues/jazz, R&B vocalist and harmonica player. Her style like her beauty, is dynamic. Her warm sultry voice, stage presence and passionate performance catapult her success nationwide. As the Las Vegas Mirror put it "Teressa Brewer has more moves than the L.A. Rams backfield."
In addition, she is a virtuoso harmonica player. Teresa arrived in the Ozarks in 1998 to find her long lost family. She moved to the St. Louis area in the summer of 2007. Teresa has performed at many venues nationwide. The highlights for her personally, were the House of Blues in New Orleans, had a bit part in the movie "Heat "with Burt Reynolds. She was the associate producer for "The Show of Shows" at Caesar's Palace and been a co-founder of many organizations including the NW Florida Blues Society, the Las Vegas Blues Society. Ms. Brewer is the founder and president of American Family Rights Association-Missouri, Inc. and All Scripts4Less, helping families in the Ozarks with legal and prescription costs issues. In 1998 she was the producer for Earth-day's show "Reflections" at Seville Square in Pensacola Florida. The success of this event was talked about for years. She is credited for bringing the blues to N.W. Florida, assisting in the first annual Blues Festival. Her band "Teressa Brewer's Armed and Dangerous Blues Band," was the only female blues act in N.W. Florida at that time and the hottest band in the area. Widowed and left to raise five children completely alone in 1987, with no supportive family, made road trips no longer an option for Teressa, so she became a broadcaster and public speaker after attending National Broadcasting School in Portland Oregon. The result was employment by KFAR/KWLF radio in Alaska as well KATN -the ABC/NBC affiliate, writing, directing, producing and voicing spots, doing news, board operation and A.E. At KNEWS in Las Vegas she was the weekend news anchor and reporter. She is the featured artist on the King Tut Blues Band's latest album, "Start Singin the Blues" in 2006. Teresa Brewer is also a published poet. Her poem "The Struggle" was the winner of an annual poetry contest and she was inducted into the Poet's Literary Society.
This work was honored in Washington D.C. in 2000 and she was invited to add her pro's to that of Gandhi, in celebration of her poetic vision.
