Indiana producer, singer/songwriter and performer Ty Causey appeared on the music scene in the late 90s as a vocalist for smooth jazz saxophonist Najee. Causey co-wrote and performed on Najee’s Morning Tenderness CD, which landed him the opportunity as the featured performer on Najee’s worldwide tour.
Ty has shared the stage with many notable artists such as Joe Sample, Norman Brown, Pieces of a Dream and many more. Inspired to release a solo project on his own, he released his full-length debut album N-TYSING in 2004. The project featured Najee and bassist Nelson Braxton of the jazz duo The Braxton Brothers. The album was released under Ty’s own independent record label Tyvonn Records. The project drew enthusiastic reviews and found its way to radio playlists in the U.S., UK, Japan and Germany. Many of Ty’s releases have hit the top three spots on the UK soul chart top 30 earning him the name ‘MR. CONSISTENT.’ Since that time, he has released nine acclaimed follow-up projects that encouraged nominations for male vocalist of the year. Ty’s most recent CD, Cause & Effect, landed him a nomination for male vocalist of the year for 2015 from leading soul music site
Ty’s style is a combination of smooth jazz, sensual classic soul and R&B. His smooth vocals and deep lyrics complement the soulful melodic production of his music. Ty continues to record new projects and performs with his band, opening up for R&B and smooth jazz artists such as Boney James, Babyface and Peter White.
