Joining a talent show was probably Teza Sumendra’s best decision ever back in 2006. After being one of the top 20 Indonesian Idol finalists, he consistently continued pursuing his dream. Even after he got eliminated, he didn’t give up easily. He decided to upload more of his singing ability through SoundCloud and became a vocalist in a band. Hard work paid off in 2009, he was finally asked by Indra Lesmana to be a feature singer in his new single. Since then, he got a lot of offers to perform and to collab. Spending a year to composing his debut album, Teza eventually released his self-titled album in February 2015. Currently, he’s preparing tracks for his upcoming album, which hopefully will be released next year.
