 Teena Marie is an outstanding singer, songwriter, producer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist (primarily guitar and piano) and performer – all rolled into one explosive 5'1” package. She has been making music for over 30 years now and has left her mark on the industry in more ways than one. She was taken under the wing of the legendary Rick James who produced her 1979 debut, Wild and Peaceful , and her very first Top 10 single “I'm A Sucker For Your Love.” After releasing four more albums with Mr. James, she left and went to Epic Records, where she released five more albums, including the platinum-plus Starchild in 1984. Her tenth album, Passion Play , marked a major milestone for the young lady as she released it on her very own Sarai Records Label.


After an extended period of reflection and deep personal milestones – Teena Marie returned to her throne with La Doña (pronounced la dohn ya) her first album of all new material in ten years. Teena Marie was the first artist to be signed to Cash Money Classics, who helped produce her first single from La Doña “Still In Love.” The album is a blend of old and new school elements constructed on a replay of a groove from Al Green's “What A Wonderful Thing Love Is.” Ms. Marie is poised to send shockwaves through a music industry in dire need of mature artists with cross-cultured appeal and positive thought-provoking ideas to share.

Lady T's newest CD, "Sapphire", on Cash-Money Records,  hit stores on May 9, 2006. With the radio friendly hit "Ooh wee".

 Teena's 2004 release, La Doña, sold  over  500,000 copies and featured Gerald Levert and Rick James, their last collaborations prior to James' untimely passing in August 2004.


Update: Teena's New CD "Congo Square" is scheduled to hit stores May 5, 2009 (from. www.hot923.com)
