About Tensas

Tensas is an energetic songwriter with a grungy electric sound who spins a unique blend of dark folk, rock, blues and more into his own original style of writing that will incite and stir up dark feelings within you! Hence why The Indy magazine labeled his music “Rocky Mountain Gothic” in a recent cover issue, while The Gazette defined his songs The Sickness and Lovely Bones as “two musical anthem’s of 2020 and all that it brought” in a featured music story in their Pulitzer prize winning news publication. This Colorado based musician has called the mountains of the Pikes Peak region "home" for over a decade. His act name Tensas [ten-saw] derives from the 250 mile long Tensas River that he grew up along in the bottomlands of Louisiana.

To-date, his most popular song is one that he wrote in the spring of 2020, titled The Sickness, which is a rocking acoustic dark folk tune and the title track that he self-recorded and was influenced by the pandemic that he released on his debut EP early that year. His first full-band album is titled "Let the River Speak" and it is the funeral procession you didn’t know you needed! This collection of 11 grungy folk-rock tales will carry you down a dark river that flows with internal pain, love, war and death. Tall Tall Records is excited to release this album online on Dec 18th, with the CD formally on sale Dec 30th at his album release show at The Analogue’s record store in Pueblo, Colorado!
