Alfred Chow aka Tennyson King is excited to bring his own music to Lethbridge, Tuesday, July 31 at the Slice.Tennyson King sings by the Slice, July 31. photo submitted
He has played Lethbridge several time with other musicians including Sarah Burton and the hip hop collective the Vibonics, five years ago.

This time he is touring in support of his bright new CD and new single “Coast,” which was inspired by extensive  travels in Australia.

“The tour’s been going great said Toronto based Chow, where he is beginning his Western Canadian tour. The Lethbridge show is at the tail end of the tour before he goes to Europe and then back to Australia.

“ I spent a lot of time playing music and lying in the back of my van, staring at the stars on the Gold Coast,” he reminisced, adding that experience helped make the new CD and single more uplifting compared to the more serious, morose debut self titled EP.

“ This album is a lot more positive than the other album,” he said, adding the rest of the new album is in a similar vein to the first single.

“ There is a lot of escapism in the music and the songs on this album,” he continued, adding but will officially be released in November.
 he has a lot of touring ahead of him including his first tour in China in October,  and back to Australia  for the winter and a trip to Brazil to work with Carlon Hardt and Cesar Barbosa who made  and directed the psychedelic video for “Coast.”

“ The next video for Beach” will be more of a live action video. ‘Coast’ has a lot of photos from my photo album from Australia,” he said.

“ l just love traveling. It’s just such a beautiful thing to discover new places. Music is my excuse to travel,” he said.

 while he will sometimes play with a band, such as the band of Australians he uses while there, he will be playing solo shows in Western Canada including in Lethbridge.
 “ The band gives a more full sound. But the solo shows are more stripped down and intimate. I’m a storyteller, so I’ll tell stories about my travels,” he said.
“I hope people will come out and enjoy it,” he said.
 Tennyson King plays the Slice, July 31 at 9 p.m.
