Seattle based singer/songwriter and 2018 Listen Up!  Women in Music grant recipient, and 2019 Jack Straw Cultural Center recording grant recipient, Tekla Waterfield lives in the wide-open realm of Americana Roots music, incorporating elements of folk, country, indie, rhythm and blues, and soul. With influences ranging from Courtney Barnett to Aimee Mann, Jim James, Wilco, The Velvet Underground and Marvin Gaye, Waterfield aims to tell a story, paint a picture and evoke emotion with her songs.
Partnering with collaborator and husband, Jeff Fielder (Mark Lanegan, Amy Ray, Indigo Girls, Sera Cahoone) to produce her 2018 release, The Curtain Falls, garnered Waterfield critical acclaim and radio play. Her song, Rock and Roll Man was featuring in the closing credits of 2019 indie feature film, Dakota, which went on to receive "Best Original Music" in the Richmond VA International Film Festival, "Best of Metro DC" at the DC Independent Film Festival, "Best Actress", "Best Editing", "Best of NOVA", and "Best Score" at the North Virginia Film Festival.

Tekla Waterfield will not be able to perform at this Bellevue Beats show due to illness.
