“Ms. Gunn is a tough woman who cuts through niceties and demands real contact.”
~ Washington Post ~

When I was a young girl, I wanted to be a singer in a rock n roll band. In 1978, I attended a Patti Smith concert — changed my life. Patti made her own rules, that gave me permission to do the same. Started my own band, the Teresa Gunn Group. Had never written a song, did not read music or play an instrument. Began performing in punk clubs in Washington DC and Baltimore. By the end of the decade, I had recorded three original albums, toured extensively, got some recognition through press, radio, and television. Won some awards, got some respect as a singer-songwriter and performance artist. I also picked up a pretty good drug and alcohol habit. Quit performing, moved back to my hometown of San Diego, and began a very long journey of recovery…
