“ an extraordinarily talented producer/singer/songwriter who has got to be one of the brightest new stars of the smooth jazz, R&B, and sensual soul genres.” – Smoothjazz.com
Over the last seven years Ty Causey has released several highly acclaimed, chart-topping projects, starting with his stunning debut, N-Tysing to his recent gem, False Faces, all with his now trademark blend of smooth R&B and sensual soul. The result has been an impressive and still growing international fan base as well as the rightful stance of many music cognoscenti to proclaim him one of the most engaging and accomplished voices on the Urban AC scene today.
Throughout Causey’s musical journey, maneuvering through the challenges of building a successful career, the talented vocalist, songwriter and producer has called upon and held strong to his faith and religious upbringing to pull him through and keep him on track. The yearning to share that very important side of himself to the world and to acknowledge his many blessings prompted a momentary break from crafting his usual romantic fare to work on and ultimately release this, his very first Gospel project, aptly called, The Gospel Truth. But make no mistake, this is not new territory for Causey whose beginnings, like so many great soulful vocalists, began in the church where he can be seen any given Sunday still getting his praise on.
The Gospel Truth eloquently offers spiritual guidance, uplifting messages and affirmations laid down as always with Causey’s amazing vocal flow and flawless tone deftly riding grooves from honey smooth to super funky. From the rousing opening track that urges with fitting illustration to "Be Thankful" to the silky, down-tempo gem, "Thank You For Your Beautiful" to the high-power, glory giving for the most–high, "Praise His Name", this passion–filled collection is food for thought and celebration. After hearing Causey bear witness there will be no doubt in your mind that he indeed lives The Gospel Truth.
Since coming off tour with renowned saxophonist and recording artist Najee, Ty Causey has himself become internationally recognized as a highly –regarded artist and vocalist on the strength of his acclaimed CDs including, N-TYSING (later re-release as N-TYSING Rekindled), LOVE NOTES, EXPRESSIONS, TRUE LOVE IN MOTION, DOWN 2 EARTH, and his latest, FALSE FACES. Several tracks from the CDs as well as the CDs themselves have made their way to “best of” lists and currently enjoy rotation on radio programs in both the U.S. and abroad. The exposure has also opened the door to live performances with noted and Grammy® winning artists such as Boney James, Babyface, Peter White, Glenn Jones, Chico Debarge and more. During this time Causey has proven to be a premiere vocalist possessing a captivating flow reminiscent of past Soul/R&B greats with growing numbers of swayed fans, industry vets and music resources confirming the due praise. Revered soul music spot Soultracks.com from which he has garnered several “best male vocalist, and song nominations” has called him “one of the most enjoyable soul singers around." THE GOSPEL TRUTH yet again shows Ty Causey’s growth as an accomplished all around artist who continues to challenge himself wishing always to deliver something that will stand the test of time and move listeners to joy, passion or reflection.
