Bio

Mellifluous, enticing, passionate and dexterous - these are superlatives most certainly appropriate for defining the style and sound of acclaimed singer/songwriter, TY CAUSEY. Talented, prolific, and genuine are best in describing who he is. All combined the result unveils an artist that harkens back to the storied crooners of the past, but with a present day sheen that boasts a collage of soul, jazz and R&B. His brand of sensual soul and smooth R&B is winning over a growing number of fans and industry insiders alike on the strength of his acclaimed CDs and live performances causing many to place him amongst the elite vocalists on the scene today.

While building a solid rep for himself as a consummate live performer, fast becoming known as a local star in his hometown Fort Wayne and the surrounding Indiana area, a series of fateful connections brought him to the attention of noted contemporary jazz saxophonist, Najee while there for a performance. So impressed with a demo of Causey’s, Najee quickly invited him to work on his next project, the Verve Records release, MORNING TENDERNESS. Causey would not only be a featured vocalist on the recording, co-writing several of it’s tracks, but he would also fill that spot on the subsequent worldwide tour which had him sharing the stage with other artists such as Pieces Of A Dream, Norman Brown and more. This great opportunity introduced him to a number of eventual fans of his style and sound. Needless to say, the enthusiastic response he received while on the tour encouraged Causey upon his return home to start crafting a project of his own. He ultimately released his aptly titled full-length debut, N-TYSING in 2004. The winning collection that featured guest spots from saxophonist Najee and bassist Nelson Braxton of the jazz duo Braxton Brothers drew enthusiastic reviews and found its way to the playlists of radio programs in both the U.S and abroad including the UK, Japan and Germany. The resulting exposure gave notice to an engaging new voice on the music scene moving many to include N-TYSING on several “best of” lists for 2004.

Causey has since released four more acclaimed projects including LOVE NOTES and EXPRESSIONS, which holds a position as one of premier on-line music retailers, CDBaby.com’s top selling Urban/R&B: Smooth Soul albums and helped to garner him yet another Male Vocalist of Year nomination, his fourth, from Soultracks.com which wrote in it’s review of the release, “Ty Causey has taken a strong, creative turn on Expressions that should provide ample material for both smooth jazz and UAC radio to highlight for some time. It should also accelerate his growth as one of the most enjoyable adult soul singers around.” Premiere on-line destination for smooth jazz, SmoothJazz.com also wrote, “Causey is 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 . . . EXPRESSIONS is the album that should move Mr. Causey right to the top of the pack, where he certainly belongs.”

Causey’s latest release, TRUE LOVE IN MOTION, is a solid collection, consistent with his others, of winning tracks, infectious beats, indelible hooks and an infusion of contemporary flows – done his way – delivered with one of the most engaging and purest voices on the scene today. And also like his others this collection has received impressive reviews like that from Indiana magazine, Frost Illustrated, that raves, “With each record, Causey just keeps getting better and better at what he does. He’s really hit stride on this record, his already great voice maturing and him using it to explore even more emotional nooks and crannies in his writing and production.”

While Causey has built an impressive as well as acclaimed catalog of recorded music and is continuously in the studio creating music for future projects, his love is to perform live. In addition to appearing at music festivals, sponsored public and private events, and music clubs such as the legendary Bluenote Jazz Club in New York, Causey has opened and shared the stage with a number of noted R&B and smooth jazz artists including Boney James, Najee, Peter White and Chico Debarge, continuing in the process to capture new admirers of his captivating voice and sound.
