Jay is always looking around for a piano and Tessa has been singing her way through life since she was knee-high to a grasshopper.
The duo began performing together in 2009, both as budding jazz musicians in Seattle and as church musicians for a number of Christian Science branch churches in western Washington. They continue to compose new inspirational songs and perform weekly at church services.

Jay A. H. Frost has been playing piano professionally for over 10 years – in a rock band, with his own jazz trio, solo, and currently as a Washington DC Pianist. As his fingers race across the keys, deftly chasing the next New Orleans jazz baseline, it’s impossible to miss the inherent musicality and joyous abandon that he brings to each song. You may also be able to pick out a number of Jay’s musical heroes – Dave Brubeck, Vince Guaraldi, and Harry Connick Jr. Jay studied piano with acclaimed jazz pianist Randy Halberstadt and has several of his own students. He frequently exclaims to Tessa, “I want to do music ALL THE TIME!!”
Tessa E. B. Frost is a folk singer with forays into musical theater, opera, and jazz. She’s performed in Idaho, Illinois, Massachusetts, Washington State, Maryland, Virginia, DC, and in La Musa Cafe in Peru. Singing and songwriting have become well-traveled avenues for spiritual growth and learning love, and Tessa welcomes both the challenge and the joy of each new song. Her voice is pure and true, a window and a light. Listen for a moment to hear the clear tone and soulful stylings of her musical influences: Whitney Houston, Ella Fitzgerald, Blossom Dearie, The Wailin’ Jennys, and Joni Mitchell, to name a few.
