May 28th, 2017
TEENY TUCKER IS ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED, DYNAMIC, EXCITING, AND CREATIVE PERSONALITIES ON THE CURRENT BLUES SCENE. TEENY CREATES “CROWD FRENZY” WHEREVER SHE GOES.
Although Teeny was born into blues royalty, (daughter of Tommy “Hi-Heel Sneakers” 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 interpret with soulful, bluesy, and uniquely stylistic renderings was set.
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 U.S., Sweden, France, Switzerland, Belgium, and Italy. Teeny was chosen for the cover of July/August 2004 edition of King Biscuit Time Magazine accompanied by a featured story of her musical journey.
Teeny has been invited to appear on the same bill with great blues artists such as: B.B. King, KoKo Taylor, Etta James, Buddy Guy, The Holmes Brothers, Calvin Owens, Robert Cray, Keb Mo, Deanna Bogart, Kenny Neal, Bobby Rush, John Mayall, and many others.
Besides the many coveted musical accolades which have been presented to Teeny, she always willing to contribute her time and efforts to her family and community. On February 15, 2011, Teeny Tucker was selected as the 2011 Federal Carter G. Woodson Award winner. The award was presented to Teeny on February 23, 2011, at the Black History/Carter G. Woodson Program.
