Tensas Music Official

Tensas is a singer-songwriter who writes a variety of folk, blues and rock music.
 While he has called Colorado and the mountains “home” for over a decade, his act name Tensas [ten-saw] derives from the 250 mile long Tensas River that he grew up along as a child in the bottomland hardwoods of Louisiana. 
He is based in the Pikes Peak region of the Rocky Mountains and enjoys playing live throughout the region and other stages around the country for many years.

His most popular song to-date was one he wrote in the spring of 2020 that is an upbeat acoustic dark folk track influenced by, and self-recorded during, the initial lockdown and pandemic that he titled “The Sickness”.

The latest 2021 release by Tensas is a fingerpicking song about moonshine and hard times that was inspired by the traditional folk hit "You Are My Sunshine".
