“I’m about lyrics and melody and feel I’m bringing something unique to the table that has depth and really pulls a listener in. I’m not a cookie cutter type of artist that you can listen to and say that sounds like most of the other stuff out there today. When you listen to Tenor Blue you’re gonna get a different vibe. But most importantly, whether it’s a love song, a culture or conscious tune or a song about life, I try to bring something authentic and real to the table lyrically and melodically. I want people to relate to what I’m singing on a deep human level. And when I write that starts with me being able to relate and really feel what it is I’m writing. If that’s not there, it’s not gonna get recorded. ” – Tenor Blue
