This one satisfies on all accounts: Killer band, superior sound, impressice songs, and a singer with pipes, taste and control. First Class Woman is one of this year's best.- 2004 - Blues Revue


"Tommy's Girl" ranks high among the best soul and swing releases in recent memory, and marks a strong debut for Teeny Tucker. It's suberp stuff with the "real blues" stamp of approval. June 2001 - Blues Revue


She knows how to work a crowd-good and hard, and to it's pleasure...she's blessed with that stingy golden creation-genuine star quality. 2003 - Columbus Monthly Magazine


It's evident that Teeny was mostly influenced by Etta James. She is a natural and if she can continue to produce good recordings like "First Class Woman", she derseves to be right next to the divas. -2001/Vince Cheney - The Blues Site


Teeny Tucker had the presence of a young KoKo Taylor. She deliver a song with the kind right stuff gristle that put her at the head of the linein a long list of blues mamas. Backed by Sean Carney, a guitarist who can change styles with the fluid grace of a Duke Robillard.- 2004/Donald Wilcox - King Biscuit Time Magazine


"Nothing, 'Teeny' about this Tucker's voice-Jolting sound makes you clap, stomp and shake. After she sang "I'd Rather Go Blind, the audience leaped to thier feet and gave her a standing ovation."- 2003 - Columbus Post


"We are constantly looking," for new acts. An example is Teeny Tucker. When we first got her, she was on the outside stages. But she was so dynamic, we just had to bring her inside to the main stage.- 2004 - Herald.Com


"Teeny got the influences everybody likes to hear in a voice. She's got gospel, a lot soul, she's just very, very musical. Plus she can paint a picture with words; she's a good songwriter.- 2004- Kaz Kazonoff - A Whole Lotta of Soul


"On 'First Class Woman' on the stop-time "Show Me A Sign," Kazanoff's mean harp darts in the background, Carney channels bothe Lightin'Hopkins and Johnny "Guitar Watson, and Tucker manages the tricky proposition of demanding allegiance while offering a choice.-2004 (Tom Hyslop) - Living Blues

TEENY TUCKER BIOGRAPHY

Although Teeny was born into Blues royalty, (Daughter of Tommy Tucker) one need only to hear Teeny to know that she has cultivated and developed her “gifts” into her very own uniquely compelling “world-class” package.

As a child, this Dayton Ohio native began singing in the church choir. This experience, like so many other “soulful” success stories, undoubtedly began to chart the course of Teeny’s music career. The paths which would lead to her abilities to musically interpret with soulful, bluesy, and uniquely stylistic renderings were set.

A 1994 performance at the Apollo Theatre won over the notoriously cruel and scrutinizing audience which earned Teeny a standing ovation. Encouraged by the Apollo experience, Teeny started her professional singing career in November 1996 when she caught the attention of a German Blues promoter and manager who had promoted European tours for her Father. Since then, her musical journey has seen Teeny performing at many of the major Blues Festivals in the USA, Germany, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Belgium, and Italy. Teeny was selected to appear on the cover of July/August 2004 edition of King Biscuit Time Magazine accompanied by a full feature story of her musical journey.

Teeny has been invited to appear on the same bill with great blues artists such as: BB King, KoKo Taylor, Etta James, Buddy Guy, The Holmes Brothers, Calvin Owens, Robert Cray, and many others.

Teeny wrote 8 of the 11 songs on her second CD, titled “First Class Woman.” which can be heard in rotation on XM Satellite, Music Choice and Blues radio stations all over the country. Her songwriting abilities earned Teeny a place as a top-ten finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Teeny is a two-time, top-three finalist in the International Blues Challenge which is held annually in Memphis, Tennessee.

NEW CD PROJECT - "The Two Big M's"

In 2005-2006 Teeny recently took some time off after a long eight year tour and has emerged with an exciting, and unique, third CD project. The goal of the new CD is to honor and pay tribute to two underappreciated, great and talented female Blues Giants of the past: Big Mama Thornton and Big Maybelle.

Teeny, who spent a year in research and development, sees this CD as a “labor of love.” Teeny, is aided by Robert Hughes who serves as executive producer on the project. Robert is a blues historian, guitar player, and world renowned photographer. Although Teeny has received admirable recognition for her projects prior to this CD, this is the one that should clearly catapult her into the ranks of the great women blues singers who have “paid the “heavy load” dues.”

It may be an understatement to declare that Teeny possesses that rare vocal quality which can effectively “deliver” most any type of music style. Teeny’s personal choice is to inject her music with that “bluesy” feel.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the Teeny Tucker experience. I am thrilled and delighted to declare that Teeny is most definitely one of America’s most gifted and finest musical resources.

Robert Hughes
