Multi award-winning artist and songwriter TY (Tyree Tautogia) will release his third solo studio album ONE HUNDRED on October 27. The announcement accompanies the release of his brand new single ‘Morning’.
With this new album, TY drew upon his personal growth and solo creative control as inspiration and motivation for the record.
TY has come a long way since his Smashproof days with fellow members Deach and Sid Diamond. Smashproof became a household name in 2009 with their triple-platinum smash hit ‘Brother’ featuring Gin Wigmore. The track was the longest running #1 by any local artist on the NZ Top 40 Singles Chart and also saw the group winning New Zealand Music Awards for ‘People’s Choice’, ‘Highest Selling Single’ and ‘Best Music Video’ with director Chris Graham, making them one of the most reputable hip-hop groups the nation has ever produced.
Over the last five years TY has firmly established himself as a solo artist, clocking up over four million views and streams on YouTube and Spotify as well as seeing consistent success in the charts.
TY has gained a broad fan base from touring extensively throughout New Zealand and Australia, he also opened for Jay-Z during the Australian leg of his tour.
ONE HUNDRED was produced with the support of NZ On Air as part of the NZ On Air New Music Project Fund.
