Singer Tje (pronounced TYE) Austin, a vocalist and songwriter who recently appeared on NBC’s “The Voice,” hails from Austin, Texas, is a breath of fresh air and is making his mark on the music scene. Tje’s smooth and warm vocals caress the soul and speak to the heart. Tje has opened for Grammy award nominees Anthony David, Dwele and Trey Songz. Tje’s fan base has increased exponentially through his Internet multimedia presence and multitude of performances. Tje was one of the featured artists on “Texas On Tour,” he sang the National Anthem for the 2010 American League champion Texas Rangers, his MySpace site has over 3,000,000 hits, and his music is in rotation on satellite radio. Tje released his second album titled “Xperience” on February 24, 2010 and is currently completing production on his third album titled “Dreamin’ Big” scheduled for release in 2011. The first single “City of Me” from the third album was released on February 8, 2011 and the second single “Hello Stranger” was released on June 18, 2011 and is available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon and other digital outlets.
Tje released his first album, “Love Me Knots” in 2008. A film producer happened upon the “Love Me Knots” album available on iTunes and Amazon, which resulted in his song “Today Tomorrow” being featured in MTV’s indie hit movie “Noah’s Arc: Jumping the Broom” and in “In Every Woman” played on the Today Show. At these accomplishments, Tje said he was “stoked!”
Tje’s talent grabbed the attention of Browns Town Music LLC (“BTM”). To launch the artist roster of its label, Browns Town Music was in the market for artists who are authentic and organic with the ability to effortlessly transcend all genres of music and make it their own. BTM found Tje’s talent to be a natural fit in its creative vision.
Rudy Jones, an award-winning recording engineer and co-founder of Browns Town Music, saw in Tje commitment to his craft and the brand of talent that stood on its own without studio wizardry because of its purity and comfort to the soul. Tje’s songwriting talent is equally impressive as his vocal prowess. Tje says that, “I am inspired by small moments, whether they happen to me, my family, or my friends. I take how I feel and try to connect on a personal level with people who listen to my music because we all go through the same life issues!” The partnership between Tje and BTM is elevating Tje to explore new music that stretches his vocal and songwriting talent. Tje says, “Who I am, moves me to speak about life through my music. What happens to me is happening to someone else, and it is comforting, whether it is good or bad, to know that you are not alone; and this is what my music is about, comfort.”
