Speaker Bio
With a deep love and vast knowledge of music, and a dedication to uplifting other women in the music industry, Tessa Young has carved out a niche for herself as both a DJ and an agent. She launched her career behind the decks at Wurstküche over a decade ago and has played numerous venues, private parties, weddings, and corporate events. She has played TwitchCon's Broadcaster Royale Omen Challenge and Vans Girls and Women skate events and provided the tunes for a wide range of clients, including City of Hope and Too Faced Cosmetics.

Early in her career, people often told Tessa that they had difficulty finding women who DJ. In response, she launched PRISM DJs as a full-service agency that pairs clients with women who will build soundtracks for parties, weddings, and events. PRISM DJs began in 2015 with four DJs. Today, Tessa works with an eclectic roster of 30 DJs whose specialties range from hip-hop to house to indie dance.

Tessa works with potential clients to discern what music and atmosphere they envision for their events before pairing them with the perfect DJ—looking for house music with an upscale, lounge vibe? Need '90s throwbacks for a birthday party? She has someone in mind for you.
PRISM DJs is committed to uplifting the next generation of women DJs and has provided two scholarships for teenage girls to attend Camp Spinoff, where Tessa has volunteered in 2018 and 2019.
