There is just something about Tynisha Keli. Don’t know her? You will, soon enough.
Not only does this sweet songbird draw you in with her honey coated high notes, but she keeps you there with her humility, relatability and passion. Just because the 23 year old Pop/R&B vocalist has worked with the likes of Ne-Yo and Mario doesn’t mean that she won’t answer your comment on myspace; Tynisha always makes time for the people that have supported her career since its conception. Music has always been Tynisha’s therapy and with the anticipation of the release of her debut album in early 2009, The Chronicles of TK, we get to know everything there is to know about this talented chanteuse; from her poverty-stricken upbringing, to her journey to stardom, you’re bound to fall in love with her beautiful melodies and timeless lyrics.
How did you get your start in music?
I met Scott Ross—from Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch—and he’s from my hometown. I met him through my mom. I went to Florida to do a couple demos. Once I heard the demo, I decided I wanted to be a singer. I really didn’t want to be a singer before that; it was just an outlet for me. Music was my escape.
Where do you see yourself going with your career?
I see myself doing a lot of things. I don’t necessarily want to do just the music thing. I have been doing it for so long now. I’ve been trying to get the album out and going through so many changes in the process because I started when I was 18 and I’m now 23. My music is just evolving, so that’s usually the first thing on my plate—to get this music going, find my own way, do what I want to do and have people gravitate towards it. I just want to bring back great music. I’m not putting down anybody’s music out there though. I just hope that in the years to come, I just can help bring music back. I want to have people love the music and to be authentic.
