O.N.E The Duo

Roughly halfway into their six-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-Tang Clan — 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.

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 of the historic 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 will release its 12-track debut album Blood Harmony on August 11. The first single, “Feels Good” (released March 17), 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, the single was playlisted across Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, and SoundCloud, and the song’s music video earned more than 2.3 million views in its first month post-release.

“Each of the 12 tracks on this album is meaningful to us and is like a chapter in a book reflecting our spirit, life and vision. The title was clear to us even before the album was completely done. Blood Harmony – it’s as pure and honest as we can get and it points to a fact we’re grateful to own: being the first black mother/daughter in history, and the second in the history of country music,” says the duo. “We hope this album uplifts you, moves you and inspires you. We’re beyond excited to share this with the world and are grateful for everyone on our team who helped us along the way. We look forward to playing these songs live and making new friends and fans along the way..“

Of its May 12th single, “Hearts Like Mine,” the latest release off of Blood Harmony, the duo shares, “This is definitely one of our more vulnerable songs. It’s a look into the different perspectives of ourselves and how we love. The main sentiment we kept coming back to when writing this song with Rebecca Lynn (Howard), Elisha Hoffman, and Barnone was the thought of, even with all the quirks that our ‘hearts’ have, it’s what makes us unique and worth holding on to. Easy to lose and hard to find.”
