Therese has been playing her tunes up and down Bakersfield's live music scene for the past 8 years, and she has made it clear she is a force to be reckoned with.  After joining The People's Band, a jam-band of some of the best musicians Bakersfield has to offer, she remarkably met and stole Travis Byler of 1916, Gary Rink of DubSeeds, and Jason Blakely of Velorio to form the magic that was Therese & the Sweetness.  Therese & the Sweetness toured across California from 2012 to 2016--north to San Fran, west to Paso Robles, and south to LA areas. Her quirky originals are reminiscent of Regina Spektor, but with the pop flavor of artists like Sara Bareilles or Maroon 5.  Not only does she have a funky groove with all of her originals, but can play covers spanning all genres of music and can musically melt faces for an entire evening.
