Listener. Storyteller. TEE.

Owning much to a religious up-bringing, where he honed his multi-instrumental talent and ear for arrangement, TEE’s artistic voice has always retained an appreciation for collective harmony and the diversity of the chorus. He’s an artist shaped and defined by emotive exchange, the constant desire to produce music that “hits you”, that teaches, convinces and compels its audience and those involved in its making. In the role of narrator, one which has been continually informed by the range of projects and collaborations he’s worked on over the past five years, TEE looks to break through the lens of observation to offer a unique expression and shared experience entirely of its moment.

“I want to be able to open conversations,” Tee explains of his music. “As a society

we’re better at it. But there’s not enough conversations about real shit.”


SOULFULTIZ is a Host/ DJ at Melodic Distraction and KCC Live and an Amateur pencil artist. His passion and love for music saw him connect with the collective, Soul Inspired Events – the team behind Soul4Soul and Liverpool SoulFest. They’ve also curated stages for Liverpool Pride, Threshold Festival, LIMF and Liverpool Loves to name a few.

For Tony, music is one of those artforms that reminds him of good memories and experiences. He believes music has the power to connect with people of all backgrounds and is on a mission to share his love and passion with as many people as possible.
