Tennyson Turned Down Sony and Columbia Records
What did Sony and Columbia saw in Tennyson that they want to sign him so bad? One of the best singing voice they ever heard. But why Tennyson turned down this great opportunity? This hidden superstar decided to chose a different road to destiny.
Charlotte, NC (I-Newswire) December 5, 2013 - Who is Tennyson? Well one of his producer and friend David puts it like this, "If you look at of some of the great singers today like Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Adele, and John Legend, you will see that they all had something special about them that set them apart and caught the attention of those who were in the range of their influence. When you experience what Tennyson has to offer you can easily place him in that category. I am not going off of just personal taste or opinion, but off of the reactions and words of the many people and fans we have encountered over the years of performing!"
Just recently Tennyson auditioned for The Voice and out of thousands of people he was selected to go to the 2nd round. The judges' eyes popped open when he started singing acapella "Give Me One Reason" by Tracy Chapman. Then, sung "Diamond" by Rihanna on the next round having a chance to advance to the Blind Audition on TV, but backed down from the competition. Reason being he didn't want to fully enter a competition in which he wasn't interested in the prize of signing to a major record label. His goal has always been to be an independent artist to always have total control of his music. That explains why many years ago he turned down an opportunity with Sony Records and Columbia Records. Of course, everyone thought he was crazy, but Tennyson sticks to his standards and will never compromise his musical and creative freedom for money or fame.
Now with Tate Music Group in the picture he can exercise that freedom owning all the rights to his music. When Tate Music heard Tennyson for the first time they were very amazed with his voice, the quality of his music, and appreciated the fact that his lyrics were clean, so they offered him a distribution deal giving this singer/songwriter the green light to sign. So the wait was definitely worth it!
Tate Music will only distribute his album to the extent that it is marketable. They have the capability of getting his album on store shelves nationally from local stores to corporate stores (like Best Buy, Target, Wall-Mart, ect...) there's very little limit to what they can do, but Tennyson have to be promoted to the point that there is a demand for his music. Not everyone who is signed with them do well, only those who are pro-active.
This is why Tennyson is now ready to do shows across the country promoting his new album "Ignite" release on January 21, 2014, but also performing some of the greatest hits cover songs like Adele "Someone Like You", Tonic "If You Could Only", Rihanna "Stay", and more. By checking out his music and videos on his official website www.tennysing.com, you will see why you don't want to miss the opportunity to have him at your event before he becomes a superstar.
