One to Watch: Tei Shi

Tei Shi is a stunning South American songstress playing some of the finest indie pop and R&B tunes going around.

Born in Buenos Aires, Valerie Teicher gathered global influences in her early and teen years during stints living in Bogota, Vancouver, and Montreal. Now calling Brooklyn home, this singer-songwriter is wooing all with her luscious, slinky pop.

In 2013, Tei Shi released her first EP and has steadily been releasing singles ever since. She’s mastered the ability to entwine melodies and vocal loops and creates an overwhelmingly calming sound. A complexly crafted sound she has perfectly executed to “sound like fishies swimming up a stream made of chocolate mousse.”

With a new album due out in 2015, we suggest repeating her name and listening intently to her music because before too long, Tei Shi will be everywhere!

If you’re still not convinced, check out her version of Beyoncé’s “No Angel.”
