Biography

Tenasie Bowe & Matt Keyler, combining their songwriting and performance skills to create a unique and refreshing sound, make up the Americana/Pop duo “Tenasie.” Coming from two different sides of the country (Bowe, Las Vegas and Keyler, Indianapolis), they both moved to Nashville in pursuit of furthering their solo careers. First meeting in January 2013, later that spring they played in their first writer’s round together and felt an instant chemistry through similar writing styles and an undeniable blend of their voices. Immediately the two began writing together and forming a band to perform as the new act “Tenasie.” After playing locally and nationally throughout the summer, they were named Nashville Independent Music Award’s “Best Country Duo/Group of 2013.” Currently they are in the process of recording their first EP and consistently performing locally.

Lyrics

Rusty

Written By: Tenasie Bowe,Matt Keyler

V1:
Girl it's been a while since I've been in love
First date cologne I should get rid of
Just a little musty

This passenger seat has never looked so clean
It's still an old truck you see
Just a little dusty

C:
It's hard to hide that some times gone by
Since I have been in the game
Forgot all the rules and all the hints and the clues
Stuck out here in the rain
Honey don't mind me
Just a little rusty

V2:
It was worth the search for this old back dress
I think you’ll like the way it fits me
Just a little busty

I forgot how it feels
Stumbling around in these 4 inch heels
I hope you don't notice me
Walkin with two left feet
Just a little clutzy

C:
It's hard to hide that some times gone by
Since I've looked for more than a friend
Forgot how to choose between princes and fools
Wearing away in the wind
Honey don't mind me
Just a little rusty

C:
It's hard to hide that some times gone by
Since we let our guard fall down
No reason to whether without you & no better time than right now
Honey don't mind me
Just a little rusty

Take my hand and learn how to trust me
Honey don't mind me
Just a little rusty

You Before Me

Written By: Tenasie Bowe,Matt Keyler

V1:
I wish I could go back in time
To a place before us
Before I crossed your mind
Before you held me tight
Who were you before me

V2:
Tell me your life before I came along
Were you all alone
Or was there someone else
You were calling home
Who were you before me

C:
A thousand different stories that I will never know
A million little moments you were high when I was low
I’m picking up this novel already half way through
I wish I knew you
I’ll never know you
Who were you before me

B:
Will you still be this way
When the next one comes along

C:
A thousand different stories that I will never know
A million little moments you were high when I was low
I’m picking up this novel already half way through
I wish I knew you
I’ll never know you
I wish I knew you
I’ll never know you
Who were you
Who were you before me

Always in All Ways

Written By: Tenasie Bowe,Matt Keyler

V1:
Early Monday morning
Don't want to roll out of bed
So baby call into work
We'll lay around all day instead
So what you get fired
It don't matter what they say
Their words won't change our love in any way

C:
I love you always
Forever and a year
In all ways
The one to face your fears
There may come a time
The sun will run and hide
No matter rain or shine you know I'll never change my mind
I love you always, in all ways I love you

V2:
Miscommunication
Leads to all our fights
I thought you didn't care
You thought I had to be right
So go pout about it
But you know it won't be long
Now I got you laughing and we’re right where we belong

C:
I love you always
Forever and a year
In all ways
The one to face your fears
There may come a time
The sun will run and hide
No matter rain or shine you know I'll never change my mind
I love you always, in all ways I love you
I love you always in all wars I love you

C:
I love you always
Forever and a year
In all ways
The one to face your fears
There may come a time
The sun will run and hide
No matter rain or shine you know I'll never change my mind
I love you always, in all ways I love you
I love you always in all wars I love you

Estrapade

Written By: Tenasie Bowe,Matt Keyler

V1:
I was a shot in the dark
I saw you clearly that night
Just because you like to scream
It doesn’t mean that you’re right
I let you take over me
When you consumed every thought
With just the slip of your hand
I hope the dirt breaks your fall

C:
I guess you never broke that horse
You know you times run down
When you’re thrown to the ground
I guess you never had control
And now you’re bound estrapade
With nothing left to hold

V2:
I’m the one you can’t tame
The one who made the escape
You chose how this would end
You wouldn’t loosen the reigns, you wouldn’t loosen the reigns

C:
I guess you never broke that horse
You know you times run down
When you’re thrown to the ground
I guess you never had control
And now you’re bound estrapade
With nothing left to hold
To hold

We All Go Home

Written By: Tenasie Bowe,Matt Keyler

V1:
Left eleven months ago with fire and a dream to chase
Now the flame is burnin low remind me why I even left in the first place
Same street signs
Those crooked Christmas lights dad put up again too early
And I have changed so much
But this city still feels untouched

C:
We all go home
We all go home
We all go home for the holidays

V2:
Pulled up into the driveway of a house that I’ve never seen
Where’s the dog, where’s the presents, the over decorated Christmas tree
It’s the same old town
But mom moved out
I haven’t changed at all
But this place never felt so small

C:
We all go home
We all go home
We all go home for the holidays

C:
(We all go home)
and the flame is burnin low
To the same street signs
Where is the Christmas tree
I haven’t changed at all

We all go home
We all go home for the holidays
