Tepoe Nash was born and raised in the rural part of middle Tennessee, He began his musical journey at the young age of five when his mom and dad bought him a guitar for his birthday.

Over the years, while developing his songwriting skills and musical abilities on various instruments, Tepoe was involved in several rock bands. Two of the bands were seriously considered by major record labels, but the challenges of keeping the bands together prohibited their further development. After accepting the reality of these challenges, Tepoe decided to pursue a solo musical career.
