Album Notes
Released June 2010

Only 200 physical copies of Small World will be released.

Theresa Perez’s music is by turns soothing and celebratory. Here’s what some of her fans have to say about her latest CD:

• “Theresa Perez and friends are giving us a gift with the recording of this CD, its dynamic rich sounds are creatively paired with witty happy love notes for the heart.”

• "Theresa Perez's unique gift is her propensity for captivation--vibrant, never verbose, Ms. Perez's music is as pervasively elegant and unaffected as the artist herself."

• “The songs are groovy, funky and hip - progressive, yet folk at their core. Lyrics and vibe are of a spiritual nature or at least authentic and soulful, but the music is all-encompassing...”

• “The music is cool, fun to listen to, gets you moving, and also gets you thinking. It's intelligent, original music. Also very sexy and slinky. Theresa's voice is filled with confidence and an expression that is so personal, you feel she's letting you into her world as you listen to the music. It's a world you want to hear about...the world of the heart...interpreted through a very creative, witty, artistic intelligence. And very danceable. Love it.”

Born in the US to parents from the Dominican Republic, Theresa was bathed in music from the earliest age: Merengue, 60's Rock, Motown. Her father’s love of Latin percussionists—and Carlos Santana in particular—was especially contagious, and she was playing congas and timbales before she could walk. She began playing piano at eight, and almost immediately began to create her own music. By eleven, Theresa was composing songs with lyrics on guitar, and by sixteen she was playing in bands in the neighborhood bar in her hometown of Shepherdstown, WV, where locals supported her and encouraged her to pursue music.
Theresa studied Contemporary Writing and Production as a student at Berklee College of Music. There she met other talented musicians—Omar Ledezma, Esperanza Spalding, among others—and, most significantly, discovered an enduring love for Brazilian music. Since her first trip to Brazil in 2008, Theresa has been fascinated with all genres of Brazilian music and is now in the process of mastering Portuguese.
Theresa continues to expand her composition and song-writing skills—she writes the music and lyrics for all of her songs—and she looks forward to performances abroad in the coming year.
