ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Fresh Air Hip Hop Music Needed!!
From his first album appearance in 1993, Terrany ”Tee Double” Johnson has blurred the distinctions commonly associated with ,entrepreneurs, songwriters, producers, and poets. Armed with a freestyle grace that can only be witnessed in person, he has let his lyrics flow, defined with bass lines that have given them power to shape a community. An Austin-born emcee, producer and promoter, Terrany has released 11 independent albums, spanning more than a decade of Texas hip-hop's history. In 2004, Tee Double joined MumboJumbo Entertainment for the release of his 10th album, The Lone Star L.P. After years of recording and performing, created Kinetic Marketing with fellow visionaries Dana Thompson and James Truitt in hopes of promoting major label acts in the Southern region of the U.S. The newly created company opened up opportunities for other hip-hop artists in the region. Terrany also has worked as the National Urban Hip-Hop Coordinator for SXSW, a yearly conference and exhibition in Austin highlighting the entertainment industry. The culmination of artistic talent and business knowledge has allowed Terrany the ability to succeed in an otherwise volatile industry. From selling cassette tapes on the drag across the street from the University of Texas for a buck, and recording eleven (11) independent albums to becoming an Advisory Board Member for the Austin Music Foundation and speaking on panels for the Texas Chapter for the Grammy's "Grammys in school program".Recently returning from a U.S. and Canadian wide adventure on The ESPN sponsored Cali-Comm4 45 date tour . Terrany has performed with The Roots, Snoop Dogg ,Jurassic 5,,Mirage, Arson Optics, Young Nick ,The Blues Travelers, Ozomatli, Ivan Neville, Bob Schneider and many more while producing records for some of the worlds freshest underground talent around the globe. Now in 2006 Kinetic Global will release numerous projects in the upcoming year including a live album "BEEN NITRO-The Live Experience" of exclusive tracks including studio sessions, performances and more. For more please, listen to the explosive new album from TEE DOUBLE "The Growth" and hear why this is fast becoming a classic album across the globe. Recently Terrany had his music placed in episodes of “The Roller Girls” a series on the A&E channel filmed in Austin,Tx. Bringing his dynamic energy to the weekly BoomBox performance at The Lucky Lounge in downtown Austin was a step in showing his diverse skills as an artist and producer, arranger of a live band. Sadly no longer playing with BoomBox as the demands of producing, recording, touring and running his company Kinetic Global is time consuming but worth every second. Terrany has proven once again that hard work, dedication, and believing in one's self, anything can be achieved. Thus transforming a dream into the new Kinetic Global Operations based in The Music Capital of the World Austin, Texas!

Robert Gabriel

Growth elevates beyond the mundane sameness
Rejuvenated by his experiences as a supporting act on the Cali Comm 4 tour, Austin's Tee Double
enriches his 11th album in as many years with a savvy emphasis on club bangers. Swimming in a
ticklish swarm of Neptunes-inspired bass bubbles, The Growth's "Natural Phlow" reaches a treasured
domain where songs such as Snoop's "Drop It Like It's Hot," Ying Yang Twins' "Wait," and Young
Gunz's "Set It Off" invigorate dance floors. Claiming to have "played every instrument you hear on
here on my MP," Tee proves himself an emerging producer with an aptitude for stretching the
parameters of rideable rhythms. As the disjointed loop of "Bringing It Back" tests his proficiency as an
MC, Tee tackles the challenge with the calculated ingenuity of a jazz improviser, assuring that this
"ain't no fly by night flow." While abrupt keyboard stabs urge "Walk Slowly" and "Vocal Laps" into
the realms of IDM opulence, "Love Interest" and the title track bask in the soulful glee of Kanye-esque
production aesthetics. Sporting endorsements from Aceyalone and Del tha Funkee Homosapien, The
Growth elevates Tee Double's artistry beyond the mundane sameness seemingly expected from such
an accessible staple of the local rap scene.

"if you’ve not heard of him,do yourself a favor and check this performer out liv
When something is good, it doesn’t matter what genre
you are in, it’s good. This is what hit me when I popped Austin,Texas hip-hop artist Tee Double’s The Growth into my CD player.
The album, which makes eleven by this local
emcee, pair equal parts, soul music, jazz, and
hip-hop beats. The ten tracks have a groove to them that is
easy to listen to, not too much bass and Tee
Double doesn’t throw an x-rated phrase into the
mix to get his point across.
I admit, I hadn’t heard of Tee Double before this
CD crossed my desk and if you’ve not heard of
him, do yourself a favor and check this performer
out live or on CD—www.kineticglobal.net/. A (SC)
