I think it is about time I give these incredibly talented guys some more MCL love. It is bordering on embarrassment that I have not covered their journey to international stardom on a more frequent basis. I apologize.
Originally known as The Canadian Tenors, The Tenors, comprised of Fraser Walters, Remigio Pereira, Victor Micallef and Clifton Murray, have amassed a huge international following in just 8 years. Now, 8 years may seem like a long time for many of you, but, in artist years, it is a moment in time. Time spent working, writing, performing, networking, promoting and working at one’s craft with vision and determination.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to bring The Tenors to our community at a time when people were saying – “who are these guys“? Will they sell tickets?
Well, sell they did – three times – to a sold-out audience who wanted more and more and more from these exquisitely gifted and genuine singers.
Since then, they have moved on to Oprah and Celine, David Foster and Andrea Bocelli, Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney and more. So much more.
While listening to their promotional video, featured below, I am astounded at the exceptional diversity and vocal capability displayed by these gentlemen. I always knew they were extremely versatile but, over the past couple of years, they have taken the term “classical crossover” to a whole new juicy level.
They recently released an album, titled “Under One Sky“, which showcases their songwriting talent in addition to their vocal talent. It is absolutely stellar and I encourage you to purchase or stream it. It is first-class quality all the way and, in a world where we are looking for role models in the world of music, one cannot go wrong with these guys. They will change the way you listen to music – and for all the right reasons.
Here is the background story for “Under One Sky“, courtesy of TheTenors.Com
” The Canadian group has written a handful of songs for their previous three sets, but Under One Sky marks the first time their songwriting talents stand toe-to-toe with their vocal prowess. In the process, they’ve created a rich collection that expands on their earlier efforts, while delving deeper into their collective strength as artists.
“That this band has been seen as just four singers is a bit of a misconception,” said Pereira. “When you peel away the onion, you get many layers. With each album, we built more confidence to write for ourselves.”
The four members wrote individually and in pairs, often teaming with top co-writers including Walter Afanasieff (Mariah Carey, Josh Groban) and Steve Diamond (Faith Hill, Eric Clapton).”
