Barely North Entertainment is excited to bring Tennyson King for an evening of music in the Chapel at Providence Farm
Doors: 7 Show: 7:30
Tennyson King — it’s a name that evokes notions of classic, literary depth and majesty. But it also has the hallowed ring of the gritty, earthy roots of rock and roll. In a sense these are both correct as it is the name — or nom de plume — of Toronto-based musician/composer/producer Alfred Chow’s exciting new musical odyssey.
The self-titled Tennyson King EP, produced by Derek Downham (Serena Ryder, Keven Drew, The Beauties) sees Chow’s inventive musical persona bringing together the emotional intensity and dark sweetness of the blues with compositional and production techniques that feature a lush layered, psychedelic and 1970s rock sensibility, all wrapped up in a contemporary, modern lustre that gives the music an appeal that transcends genre and demographics.
Prior to Tennyson King, Chow was an in-demand collaborator in a variety of bands and musical projects that spanned a head-spinning array of genres and styles, from jazz to hip hop to classical, reggae and rock.
His eclectic career has seen him share the stage with the likes of Whitehorse, Sloan, Elliot Brood, Joel Plaskett, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and Jon B.
