With the help of his adoptive father, an amateur guitarist, Senie began to play the guitar at the age of 7. He learned most of what he knows through watching footage of live concerts of early influencers, especially Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, Eric Clapton and The Allman Brothers. As he learned guitar, Senie’s rhythmic instincts led him to experiment with drumming on the guitar as a way to capture the sound and rhythms of his West African roots.
Senie’s playing is eclectic, powerful and artfully unique. This original approach and performance style, especially his unique percussion, sets Senie apart from other acoustic guitarists. Senie composes continuously and has a large body of work for one so young. In 2020, he was awarded the Innovators award at the Granite State of Mind Music Awards for his guitar mastery, and unique compositions. His spotlight includes opening up for well established artists such as Richard Thompson, The Levin Brothers, Brooks Young Band, Daby Touré, Delusive Relics, and Hank Osborne. Senie's first studio album 'Song Bird' is available now on all Platforms.
