“Born in Virginia, his mixed race and mixed culture background exposed him to the blues of his Fathers family, and the folk music played by his Mother. Since the young age of 12, Tevis has been inspired to bring old traditions to life for a true blues experience as he channels his heritage. While accenting his own original flare and interpretations, Tevis executes an authentic performance whether it be a cover or an original. As an artist, he is more than a re-vision-er of yesterday, he is a fresh contributor to today.
After moving to Portland Oregon in 2003 where he still resides, he has experienced a meaningful career opening for acts such as Robert Cray, and performing onstage with Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary,) Baby Gramps, Mary Flower, Norman Sylvester, Bill Rhoads, Ural Thomas and Suburban Slim to name a few. Tevis placed as a solo semi-finalist in the 2014 International Blues Challenge,and he has had great reception at festivals and venues alike.”
