Brief info

Tommie Tei, is a reggae / dancehall recording artist and songwriter who hails from the Banbury District in Linstead, Jamaica. From a young age he develop a passion for music and loved to perform in front of large crowds,
His musical journey began unconsciously at age eight when he had the opportunity to sing and perform before a live audience at church. The experience had a positive impact on him; so much so that he subsequently fostered the skills he acquired as a young singer at the sanctuary and went on to perform in the community’s annual Grand Market Christmas Eve celebration. It was at this and other similar events, that Tommie Tei became known and respected as a legitimate entertainer.

Over the years, in between his regular 9 to 5 jobs, some of which required him to travel overseas, Tommie Tei remained steadfast in his desire to become a professional recording artist with a wide audience. To that end, he has consistently worked on his craft, continuously improving his competence as both a vocalist and a lyricist. He has, and continues to seek the guidance of more accomplished artists and musicians; and his dedication and commitment has led to him carving out a niche for himself. He now fuses elements of pop music with his Jamaican reggae: a sound that his fans and supporters seem to love and appreciate.

To date, Tommie Tei has recorded and released several singles. A couple worth noting are Police & Soldier, which is his first official release done in 1994 and one that led to him performing on stages outside of his Linstead community. Good Girl is another record that received steady rotation and was even featured on a prominent reggae compilation by 3000 Records. In May, 2012, Tommie Tei shared his first ever triple track EP, titled Music for the Soul. It was produced by TEE and JAA Records. He has since followed up with additional singles.

Fast-forward to 2021 and Tommie Tei and his team are now focused on his brand-new EP, Win This Time. The project, which was released on May 11th, 2021, has six tracks and features two collaborations. Since it was published, it has been getting favorable reviews by both music critics and industry insiders. Team Tommie Tei is now in full promo mode as the intent is to push this EP as aggressively as they can.
