Corner Cafe Show: November 4, 2017
Teressa Mahoney is a singer, musician, award-winning photographer, graphic designer, wife and mother of four. As a stay-at-home mom turned singer/songwriter, Teressa just released her first EP “Made New” on September 22, 2017. The five song EP was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. Her songs can best be described as Christian indie/folk with a bit of pop influence.
Teressa grew up in a Christian home in Franktown, Colorado and began singing at the age of four. She wrote her first song on the piano at age 5. By 13, she was singing for her church’s youth group worship team and at 19, travelling the country to sing at youth conferences.
At 22, Teressa married her husband Brad, and her singing career eventually took a backseat to marriage and raising her children. During that time, she took up photography and graphic design. Then, a few years ago, after devoting over a decade to focus on her family, the music spark was ignited once again when Teressa learned to play guitar as a way to work through some difficult life circumstances. In the process, she rediscovered her love for songwriting and was soon back to a new music career – leading worship at women’s retreats, playing at open mic shows and at 43, recording her first EP.
Teressa lives in Castle Rock, CO with her husband Brad, her four children, Keaton, Madeleine, Weston and Wyatt, and their dog Koda.
