Canadian folk rocker, Tennyson King is glad to be touring Australia for the second time in as many years this summer with a massive 50 dates following his successful first Aussie outing, which included performances with Paul Dempsey, Paul Woseen (Screaming Jets), Yirrmal and Brad Marr (MASSIVE).
An established Canadian guitarist, producer and songwriter, King's debut self-titled 2016 EP saw him sign a full distribution deal to the world's largest market, China, nominated for an Emerging Artist Award, score a number of prime-time national television spots, as well as hitting high radio rotation and multiple top 10s in the Canadian music charts.
Born in Hong Kong and raised in Canada, Tennyson King plays alternative folk rock with earthy roots and blues, "It’s a raw, gritty and organic sound that makes the soul feel wild and the heart comforted," said King.
A homage to his father who passed away when he was just a teen, Tennyson King is a moniker for Alfred Chow, who has launched his own solo project having played with a number of Canadian artists over the years, "This is the music and story of my life experiences. It is very close to my heart, so seemed only fitting to honour my father's name on this new journey of self discovery."
Stepping out in 2016 with lead single, Glad To Be, King said, "This is a song I first wrote when I decided to perform my own music as Tennyson King. It sums up all the mistakes I've made and things I haven't dealt with, including the death of my father.
"We all make mistakes and less than ideal decisions in our life at times. But no matter what we do, as long as we learn and try, we will be ok. We need to accept who we are and be happy with ourselves. Just, glad to be."
With 22 dates remaining for his massive second Aussie tour, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania will be so glad to catch a Tennyson King show in the coming weeks.
