Tuelo is a folk-rock singer and songwriter who is art-driven, political, and spiritual. Hailing from South Africa and based between New York City and Dublin, she has distinct heart-piercing vocals revered by NPR, the Recording Academy and the Huffington Post, who dubbed her "New York's Best Singer…and the World’s." Tuelo's music reclaims the roots of folk and rock through protest, truth-telling, and vulnerability to revive people's spirits. Her most recent release, the live album and film Folk. Rock. Spirit. Reclaimed., was recorded in a refurbished colonial-era prison in Johannesburg and culminates her 2022 debut studio album The Life of Margaret Cornelius.
