Musician, Singer, Songwriter
Born & Bred in Brooklyn, NY, Bart is a Singer-Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist brought up by different
genres & artists that complete his sound today. Originally basing his sound in Alternative Rock & Grunge at age 16, Tesoriero later on found that there was more to what meets the "ear" & what truly spoke to his soul.
Soulful singers have always been what Bart has latched onto, like an Eddie Vedder of "Pearl Jam" for instance or an Isaac Slade of the band "The fray". Both very soulful singers yes, but not the soulful that fulfilled my spirit".
At age 17, Bart united with two musicians that changed his life forever. Christopher G., Bart's lead guitarist & AJ, his drummer at the time. Performing & building chemistry with them gradually transitioned him from an abrasive yet aggressive singer/musician to a smoother & transitional one. This made Bart not only a better musician throughout his inspiration & guidance of the two, but someone who had found true love & his true voice.
His genre or style could be described as R&b/Soul with influence of Jazz, folk & gospel. Mainly an acoustic act, he works with many other musicians that compliment the sound that is brought across to the audience. His influences are definitely heard throughout the original material and covers. Influences such as John Legend, Allen Stone, Donny Hathaway, Robert Glasper, Ray Lamontange & others.
"The arrangements & melodic placement are the things that pull me in to a song; and inspire me to write" Tesoriero states.
