ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Irresistibly combining raw, unbridled sensuality with a rich, soulful voice that her thousands of excited fans have compared favorably to everyone from Aretha Franklin to Sade, Philippine born, Chicago bred L.A. transplant Tey is truly a musical citizen of the world.

Tapping into the passions of grooving R&B fans across the globe, Tey’s infectious soul/pop vibe has been a mainstay in DJ record pools and a hit on internet and terrestrial radio stations across the U.S. (from New Jersey and Pennsylvania to Texas and California) and Europe since the release of her sexy dance-oriented debut Take Me High in 2004. Working with hit pop producer Rene Van Verseveld (whose credits include the smash hit “Pump Up The Jam” and numerous projects by Enrique Iglesias), Tey has kept her integrity as an indie artist strong while building career momentum with a her follow-up releases, including a mostly Tagalog language CD (with the hit English single “Mouthful of Love”) and her 2006 disc “That’s How I Feel Tonight” (which included a critically acclaimed cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”). The title track from Tey’s latest 4-song EP Tell Me hit the Top 10 on stations like Reading, PA’s WXAC, rising among hits by superstars like Alicia Keys, J. Holiday and L’il Wayne. The EP also features a dreamy, seductive hip-hop take on “I Will Always Love You.”

A big draw wherever she performs, Tey has sung and danced for audiences throughout her adopted home state of California, including popular Southern California venues like B.B. King’s, The Derby, The Joint, The Pomona Fairplex and Hollywood Park Casino. In 2007, the multi-faceted singer, dancer, model and actress—whom United Global Artists calls “an entertainment enigma that defies description”—left her home base and was a smash hit entertaining U.S. troops (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines) in six countries, including three military bases in a heavily war-torn Afghanistan (where she did combat landings and wore a bulletproof vest), the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kyrgystan and Djibouti, Africa.

Winning over crowds wherever she and her band and crew of dancers performed, she earned numerous raves from the U.S. Armed Services, who said, “Tey combines a voice as rich as dark chocolate with a look that could melt even Chicago’s notorious ice. From Aretha to Sade, her vocal stylings range from brassy R&B to seductively cool.” Tey says, “Everyone has different opinions on the wars going on, but my tour was all about realizing that the men and women fighting over there are real people who have feelings, needs and truly need connection with people. It was refreshing for them to see us perform in civilian clothing, and we were able to bring some joy and fun to them while reminding them of home.”

Though she grew up with great musical ambitions driven by her love for everyone from Aretha and Barbra Streisand to Sade, Natalie Merchant, Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston, Tey began her career as a model, winning Miss Asia Midwest and quickly segued into acting. Launching her film career with “Broken Rose”, Tey has also been in the films Shoe Shine Boys, Snuffing Cinderella and X’s & O’s; she loves both comedic roles and those who allow her to play dark characters. She also hit the road with “Aspects,” a two person show that promoted diversity.

While her talent and ambitions in many art forms clearly knows no bounds—she’s also a promotional whiz and entrepreneur who has marketed her brand with products like hats, posters, and T-shirts and such--Tey’s truest heart lies in bringing the world joy through her unique music. She’s truly lived up to Music Connection’s billing of her as “one of the top hot artists of the year” when the publication heard her early albums. “Working with Rene in the studio has helped me become very comfortable in the studio and has brought out my softer vocal instincts,” she says. “I think all of my artistic endeavors have amounted to a very unique career and life, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share feelings in myself that are so universal. We’ve all been hurt and experienced the same pain, just in different ways, and likewise have known tremendous moments of happiness along the way. Some have described my music as spiritual, and I definitely like lifting people up through my songs. It’s always a great feeling knowing that something I’ve written and sung can bring out the best in people.”

Tell Me
It was a good kind of different. I say 'different' because normally I don't actually play music like this on a regular basis (dam male egotistical hoop-lah). But I can't help it with this one!!! It's hot it's deep it's soulful!

Tell Me
On first listening (admittedly while a bit pre-occupied), I was vaguely uncomfortable but didn't know why, and set the cd aside for a few days. Upon listening - this time actually LISTENING - it was clear. While still pure Tey, the familiar upbeat dance flavor was gone; in it's place a more downtempo R&B vibe. More importantly, it became evident this is new ground for Tey - while she has hinted before, now we really see her deeper, reflective side...and it is compelling - leaving me at once breathless and empowered! Anything but the conventional anesthetized pop tart du jour, Tey displays a true vunerability, letting us in to feel her disappointment and longing, yet with a sense of her triumph over any past and/or current challenges, through her resiliency and faith. WOW...makes me feel the mystery and power of ocean depths while somehow at the same time the radiance of the sun bursting through a stormy sky. A must have cd if you want inspiration to overcome your own troubles, from a bare, courageous soul with a warm heart and the voice of an angel. Thanks, Tey, for being there for us, yet again! Dg.
