The international touring act, Tennyson King, is rapidly gathering fans all over the world. Born in Hong Kong, raised in Canada, this professional musician brings a jovial personality to the stage. He captures audiences - first with his reverberant, edgy sound and then with his humorous stories of life-on-the-road. He often appears solo in great halls to small intimate theatres stunning the crowd with stories of adventure and travels while strumming electrifying guitar sounds paired with silky vocal lines. Bring in the band on the big festival stage, they create a huge sound surely to get everyone moving. Rock and roll infused with earthy roots and blues subtly laced in psychedelic ear candy. Having performed with such notable acts as Paul Dempsey, Paul Woseen, Yirrmal, Geoff Achison, Clare Bowditch, Bashar Murad, Basia Bulat, The Jerry Cans, Whitehorse, Sloan, Elliot Broode, The Jerry Cans, and Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Tennyson is accustomed to bringing the ‘wow’ factor to stages around the globe Playing hundreds of shows all across Australia over multiple tours, having great success with his tours across Hong Kong and Mainland China, and a host of sold-out shows on his tour to Brasil, this Canadian artist is growing in popularity, not only in his home country, but worldwide. He has been invited to perform at festivals such as Shambala In Your Heart (Thailand), Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival (Australia), Beaches Jazz Festival (Canada) to name a few. If you’re looking for the place where your soul can be wild and your heavy-heart assuaged, follow the sound of Tennyson’s crisp, round voice, as he plucks an electric chord and hammers out a beat on the kick-drum. Tennyson is a true alternative folk rock troubadour.
