About Tuzee

Tuzee is an emerging and unique gospel, pop and R&B singer-songwriter and nurse. She writes from her heart and everyday life and hopes her music inspires people from all walks of life.

Born and raised in Liberia, West Africa, Tuzee is now a Canadian who currently resides in Ontario. She was drawn to music from a very young age and sang with her family, churches and local bands whenever, wherever she could. Music was an oasis during incredible times of suffering and along with the present inspires her music.

Tuzee calls music her Happy Place as it is her go-to when the going gets tough. Music inspires Tuzee to press on and gives her a voice when she has no voice.

Tuzee is overjoyed by the release of her debut album, Alive this past April! Alive is truly a dream come true and she is humbled to be used by God and gives Him all the praise. Alive has 11 songs, including her single, “Change is on the Way.”

In October 2022, “Change is on the Way” charted on CHVN 95.1 FM, Reach 96.3 FM, Shine 88.9 FM, The Rock 98.5 FM, Life 100.3, Alive FM and reached sixth position on the More Radio Top 10 Songs.
