Mellifluous, enticing, passionate and dexterous - these are superlatives most certainly appropriate for defining the style and sound of acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer, 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. A series of fateful connections brought Causey to the attention of noted contemporary jazz saxophonist, Najee. So impressed with a demo of his, 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 that year.
Causey released four more acclaimed projects including LOVE NOTES and EXPRESSIONS, a top selling Urban/R&B: Smooth Soul album on CDBaby.com that helped to garner him yet another Male Vocalist of Year nomination, his fourth, from revered music resource, Soultracks.com. In their review of the release they proclaimed, “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.” The popularSmoothJazz.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 followed that up with, TRUE LOVE IN MOTION, a solid collection, consistent with his others receiving impressive reviews like that from Indiana magazine, Frost Illustrated, that raved, “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.”
In 2010 Causey released DOWN 2 EARTH displaying his continued growth into an accomplished producer and songwriter serving to showcase even more his fantastic vocals. Upon its release it became an instant top seller in the Smooth Jazz and Quiet Storm categories on CDBaby.com where it still stands strong. Mark Gentry, of Soul Heaven Starpoint radio in the UK raved, “Ty delivers his best album yet and deserves worldwide recognition for staying with a winning formula. This is 21st century soul at its best and the CD is full of grooves to make you feel good.” In addition it produced, amongst many stellar tracks,“Rocket To The Moon” which earned a Song of the Year nomination from Soultracks.com while also bringing him another for Male Vocalist of the Year.
Now in 2012 Causey has just released his latest, FALSE FACES and once again it’s a wonderful tapestry of Soul, R&B, and Jazz woven together with his now recognizable tone and outstanding flow. Out the gate it’s already shaping up to be one of his best, winning great praise from fans and music cognoscenti alike. Deborah Kennedy writes in Whatzup magazine, “There’s just something about Causey’s brand of smooth soul that works on your brain and heart and feet like magic. It’s that voice. And those beats. And those hooks. And that voice. Somehow Causey knows just what to do to make you melt, fall in love, dance the night away.” While Howard Dukes for Soultracks.com calls FALSE FACES, “ . . . another artistic step forward for one of the more dependable male singers of our time.

Although 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 Kenny (Babyface) Edmonds, After 7, Boney James, Najee, Peter White, Glenn Jones and Chico Debarge, continuing in the process to capture new admirers of his captivating voice and sound.
