Tekitha & Prana are O.N.E. The Duo
Observant. Noetic. Effervescent
Roughly halfway into their five-year-long quest for country music stardom and globetrotting mother-daughter act O.N.E the Duo finally arrived in Nashville.
Then COVID-19 struck. However, undeterred, within a year, their tireless, Barbara Mandrell-style work ethic, rugged yet smooth presentation reminiscent of Miranda Lambert, and Judds-style pitch-perfect harmonies have earned them co-signs from Rolling Stone, CMT, and the Country Music Association. Tekitha and Prana Supreme —daughter of Tekitha and RZA, de-facto leader of Wu-TangClan—have been collaborating since 2018, though they did tour as a duo in 2016 as part of an ensemble cast (Love Jones the Musical).
Tekitha is an accomplished vocalist in her own right and counts a decade-plus worldwide run recording and touring with the groundbreaking rap group in her musical lineage.
Prana was born in 2000. Thus, she's a child of the modern era. However, she also has a musical intelligence, sensitivity to humanity, and goal-focused demeanor that make her timelessly prodigal like every country icon from Brenda Lee to Taylor Swift.
Their cosmopolitan blend of country swagger and hip-hop cool is unprecedented. It was born during living room jam sessions where guitar picking, handclaps, and rootsy acoustic stylings were the norm. What you hear today is a fusion of their past and present with a new vision for country music.
Quickly, though independent artists, they have already compiled a completed album's worth of work. In addition, they have been authentically accepted into many legendary Nashville A-list circles working with a team with peerless music industry experience.
This includes the likes of their manager Renee Bell (industry veteran who A&R’d artists including Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, The Mavericks), producers Dann Huff (Lonestar's "Amazed," currently working with Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, and numerous others) and Brent Maher (The Judds entire album catalog), songwriters Shane Stevens (co-writer, Walker Hayes' "Fancy Like"), Nash Overstreet (Hot Chelle Rae, American Music Award, two-time BMI Pop award winner) plus Rebecca Lynn Howard, Elisha Hoffman, Bar None, John Bettis, Marv Green, Joe Robinson.
Country music is entering an age where radio's respected, controlled environment shares relevancy with streaming's genre-free wild west sensibilities. Therefore, a duo equally passionate and conversant in the catalogs of Chris Stapleton and Kendrick Lamar is vital to the country music's future because they respect its past and have already long-embraced its present.
Next Women of Country
Named to CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2023, the duo's future sees them building from the critical success of singles "Guilty" and "River of Sins," plus having already played the stage at the iconic Ryman Auditorium.
Now, they're using their growing and well-studied love of country music to achieve, claiming the space they are due and expanding within it.
O.N E The Duo’s newest single, “Feels Good,” is a genre bending pop-country banger about tapping into that feeling of whatever it is that makes YOU feel good...The track includes musical influences of their time spent in Southern California and the Bay Area, which is why they chose to film the music video at home in California. Co-written in Nashville with Shane Stevens (“Fancy Like”) and Nash Overstreet, it’s the first offering from their forthcoming debut album expected later this year.
