A non-profit CEO by day, Oakland’s Tess Posner trades the office for a microphone off the clock to further deliver her messages of inspiration and inclusivity. Produced by Sal Oliveri (P!nk, Carrie Underwood, Ryan Tedder), “The Mask” is a dark, determined, and catchy piece of synth-pop that implores us all to take off the mask. As Posner has stated, “being yourself can feel dangerous” sometimes, creating fears and stigmas that prevent us from being our unfettered selves. However, Posner uses her music provide inspiration and encouragement to drop our masks and cloaks, and to face the world as our unique selves. The raw honesty on display, coupled with smooth vocals and top-tier production, is sure to have you feeling ready to tackle anything!
