Diva in the making. Fiery, sensual, beautiful and fierce, young Tonya Tejay Montague has risen to become the hottest female vocalist in Barbados music arena. Like so many others, Tejay began her singing career in the church where she performed in numerous choirs and groups. However, her smooth, alto voice and thirst for success were destined to take her to far bigger stages.
Tejay joined the award-winning gospel group ’Instruments of Praise’, which allowed her to expand beyond the gospel realm into the more secular area of Caribbean Jazz, and led to her first recording project as a background vocalist on the group’s debut CD ’First Steps’. Those first steps were certainly that, as appearances at Barbados Gospel Fest and later the acclaimed Barbados Jazz Festival soon followed. She also lent her voice on background vocals for major artists like Danah, Jesus Army and K.D.B as well as Keann on the popular track ’Scream’.
Emerging from the background, Tejay finally took her talent where it belonged- center stage- when she joined Strategy in November,2004 as the sole female vocalist. With each performance she brings sophistication and style to the stage. Her gospel background belies the ease with which she delivers on the group’s calypso and R&B tracks, yet her church-honed soulful vocal delivery sets her apart from her contemporaries. With Strategy she got the opportunity to share the stage with major international stars such as Fat Joe, Dru Hill, Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Terror Squaq, Sean Paul, Maxi Priest and soca royals such as Alison Hinds, Rupee and the Dot Com Band, Kevin Lyttle, Mr. Vegas, Edwin Yearwood, Krosfyah, Bunji Garlin and many others. She not only shared the stage in Barbados, but also the Helen Of The West Indies, St. Lucia. She performed as part of the massive BK Fashion Weekend, that was attended by the who’s who of the international music, film and fashion industries, and shortly after perfomed in the United Kingdom.
Tejay has released her debut album called Summer Kisses along with a hot video for her first single called Chimmie Papa. Various producers in the Caribbean have worked on this project such as Danny Champaigne and Fewwture Productions. She has collaborated with artiste such as Voicemail, Tenza of the group Fyah, Italist and Rasbrando.
Tejay has successfully launched her debut album Summer Kisses and her new video for Chimmie Papa which is receiving much media attention. It is without a doubt that she is one to watch for the future not only as a singer and a performer but also a skilled songwriter who is destined for true success. Look out for this bright new star on your horizon as she may well grace a stage near you very, very soon.
