Biography

TC Tye's influences started at birth with gospel quartet music and then by age 8 TC had the "satchmo" voice down complete with inflections and mannerisms, by 13 he took piano lessons and by 15 had his first rock band playing Rush, Deep Purple, Led Zepplin, Yes, The Who, Doobie Brothers, and then moved into country and folk, then top 40 rock band "Cruiser" in Jr. College led to steady work on the Crown Lounge Circuit, then he studied jazz piano principle and chorus at U. of Miami to increase his improvisation techniques and broaden his musical horizon. After college and loving the beach-side lifestyle he went solo playing Jimmy Buffett, Bob Marley and calypso music to the barefoot bikini clad tourists in the Florida Keys.  

     By 2005 he realized he wanted residual income from his own music and started getting serious about having a full night's worth of original songs just as fun and exciting as any covers he was playing. In 2012 TC dedicated his life to writing hit songs and full time song writing, film and tv placements and performing and the result is an intense study of contemporary hit songs and his outpouring of creative influences has created 13 CD's worth of music in 13 different genres sure to have a hit in each one. Music came so easy to TC that he took it for granted for most of his life and simply goofed off but now the focus is intense on getting his life's work out there and developing himself as a singer songwriter and band leader. TC may pick his favorite genre for his own act and sell all his other songs to other artists and for film and tv placement and regularly creates a song on demand and produces the recording within 24 hours of inspiration or request. He is a song writing creative genius machine and you can see the progression at his new website www.tctye.com latest 6 original and at chornicseduction.bandcamp.com songs. TC is touring the SE playing live from Cape Canaveral to the Florida Keys area and heading to the NW in the summer of 2019. Ready and able to play anywhere in the world and seeking a recording contract, professional management and marketing while he continues the craft full time.

The feeling within my reach, my toes are in the sand
Now that I am on the beach, healing is at hand

Salty air up in my nose,
Water lapping at my toes,
Its the place that I have chosen to be

Gentle ocean breeze, feeling the warmth of the sun
The rustling coconut leaves, soothing has begun

Salty air up in my nose,
Water lapping at my toes,
Its the place that I have chosen to be

Feel my soul, heal my soul, feel my soul

My body is at the beach, offered up in the sand
Healing withing my reach, my soul will understand

Feel my soul, heal my soul
Feel my soul, heal my soul
Feel my soul, heal my soul
Feel my soul.....

Bailey The Basset-Beagle Had A Bagel

Bailey the Basset-Beagle is the mayor of the block
He has his own program and he's on his own time-clock
He runs along sniffing the ground with his tail wagging in the air
But one day when we called him... Bailey the Basset-Beagal was not there

We went to search his daily route and soon we got a call
Bailey the Basset-Beagle was having a garbage ball
A garbage can fell over dumping bagels in the street
And Bailey the Basset-Beagle was seeing how many bagels he could eat

Beth went out the door as Bailey was sneaking back to the house
Bailey the Basset-Beagle had a bagel in his mouth
Beth called out to Bailey and he let the bagel go
Bailey the Basset-Beagle let out a bagel burp... real slow

He was trotting towards the back yard hoping no one would see
As Bailey the Basset-Beagle buried the bagel under a tree
But Beth caught Bailey and Bailey dropped the bagel in his tracks
Bailey’s belly was full of bagels... but we were glad to have him back

Oh, Bailey the Basset-Beagle is the mayor of the block
He has his own program and he's on his own time-clock
He runs along sniffing the ground with his tail wagging in the air
If someone dumps a pile of bagels, I bet you'll see Bailey the Basset-Beagle...standing there eating bagels and wagging his tail

Down South

Down South

I'm Heading down south, trying to forget your name
Changing my surroundings and I'm leavin' behind, all the pain
Pretty soon, you'll be missing me, but I have already fallen from that tree

Trying to shake this frown, got all my windows down
I want wind the wind to blow in, and welcome me, to my new town
If I had known, that moving on, was all I had to do
I'd a done it, long before, you started drilling in the screws

Let the Cajun howl , let the blossoms flower every hour that I
Don't have to pretend to be.....anyone but me, down south...

I'm singing the blues, but the Cajuns have some folks like me
They settled in the bayou cause they all wanted, to be free
Something 'bout that muddy water...settles the score
I can live out my passion and its starting to restore

Let the Cajun howl let the blossoms flower every hour that I
Don't have to pretend to be.....anyone but me, down south
Lead:1x

The beginning can only start, after coming to the end
Cause what goes around is coming back again
Well next time, you get around, to thinking about me
Remember that, you had it, the way you wanted it to be
And I no longer need to be around...that kind of friend
Lead:1x

Let the Cajun howl let the blossoms flower every hour that I
Don't have to pretend to be.....anyone but me, down south
Lead:1x

Outro:
This time it will be different...is the definition of insanity
And I'm hoping that a smile, will evolve...from this painted on frown
I can sink my heart...into the heart of the south
