Teresa Joy began her career at age 4. She enrolled in Mandell’s Suzuki Violin school at age 5 and, at age 7, began studying with noted violinist Moshe Bukhspan. By age 12, Teresa had performed at Carnegie Hall with the Metropolitan Youth Symphony, at the Heritage Square Concert Series for Accomplished Suzuki Violin Students and, regularly, with the Arizona Metropolitan Youth Symphony. She made her recording debut at age 15 with guitarist Esteban on “What Child Is This?”, Esteban’s Billboard chart-topping Christmas album. After graduating from New School of the Arts in Scottsdale, Arizona, Teresa attended the International Academy of Design and Technology and graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Digital Production.
Since 2004, she has toured the country and performed live on television with Esteban, notably in the PBS Special “Flame Flamenco and Romance”. She has also recorded over a dozen albums with Esteban, these albums charting over 100 times on the Bilboard in various categories. Teresa’s soulful and engaging style has captivated audiences at several of the country’s largest venues including Red Rocks, Colorado and at Severence Hall with the acclaimed Cleveland Pops Orchestra. She has also performed for many charitable benefits including the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon, a USO tour in Cuba with Esteban, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hospice and Touro University Autism Aid Program. Teresa broke new creative ground with her first solo album, Rosin Revolver, Volume 1.
Teresa Joy finds herself at home on the stage, learning new things about herself every time she plays. Connecting with the music and audience is the highest reward to her. Connecting as well with her father, Esteban, she feels truly blessed they are on this incredible musical journey together.
Connecting her playing with her love of dance and improvisation, Teresa Joy is a true gypsy at heart and her performances exude Passion and Joy.
