Get ready to hear The Tenors like you’ve never heard them before.
On their new album, Under One Sky, the multi-platinum Juno-award winning foursome co-wrote eight tunes, showing facets of themselves they’ve longed to share with their millions of fans. "We’ve had eight years together and we wanted to turn those memories into music," says Clifton Murray, who is joined in The Tenors by Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira and Fraser Walters.
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," Pereira says. "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).
"Tenor groups aren’t known for going out and writing like a band," Micallef says. "We came to the table as singers, but we’re also songwriters and musicians and we’re using all our talents, not just our voices, onstage. We get to show all our colors."
That’s not to say they are abandoning the blueprint that made them beloved. Under One Sky’s material covers the full range of tunes that have made The Tenors one of the most popular live draws across the globe. In addition to the originals, Under One Sky includes the foursome’s reinventions of contemporary classics like "Lean on Me" and "You Are So Beautiful," a swoon-worthy duet featuring Walters’ wife, Kelly Levesque, as well as their glorious interpretations of classical pieces "Granada," "Besame Mucho" and "Agnus Dei."
