TEENY TUCKER BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Although Teeny was born into Blues royalty, (Daughter of Tommy Tucker) one need only to hear Teeny to know that she has cultivated and developed her “gifts” into her very own uniquely compelling “world-class” package.

As a child, this Dayton Ohio native began singing in the church choir. This experience, like so many other “soulful” success stories, undoubtedly began to chart the course of Teeny’s music career. The paths which would lead to her abilities to musically interpret with soulful, bluesy, and uniquely stylistic renderings were set.

A 1994 performance at the Apollo Theatre won over the notoriously cruel and scrutinizing audience which earned Teeny a standing ovation. Encouraged by the Apollo experience, Teeny started her professional singing career in November 1996 when she caught the attention of a German Blues promoter and manager who had promoted European tours for her Father. Since then, her musical journey has seen Teeny performing at many of the major Blues Festivals in the US, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Belgium, and Italy. Teeny was chosen for the cover of July/August 2004 edition of King Biscuit Time Magazine accompanied by a featured story of her musical journey.

Teeny has been invited to appear on the same bill with great blues artists such as: BB King, KoKo Taylor, Etta James, Buddy Guy, The Holmes Brothers, Calvin Owens, Robert Cray, Keb Mo, and many others.

Teeny wrote the lyrics for 8 of the 11 songs on her second CD, titled “First Class Woman.” which can be heard in rotation on XM Satellite, Music Choice and Blues radio stations all over the country. Her songwriting abilities earned Teeny a place as a top-ten finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Teeny is a two-time, top-three finalist in the International Blues Challenge which is held annually in Memphis, Tennessee.

In 2008, Teeny Tucker was invited to appear on the MAIN STAGE of the Monterey Blues Festival. She has been nominated for the “2008 Best Female Blues Artist” of the year by BluesBlast. Teeny’s newest CD “The Two Big M’s” was ranked in the 15 spot on the Bob Davis list of 2008 top 25 releases, and has reached the number 6 spot on the Living Blues Charts.

Teeny was nominated for 2009 Blues Blast Music Award for Best Female Vocals. Her tribute CD "Two Big M's" was nominated for the Top Six Finalists for Best Self Produced CD by the Blues Foundation in Memphis, TN.
