Tensheds Short Info

After a year long hiatus following his 300 date Crazy Beautiful Tour (2011 – 2012), Tensheds re-appeared back on the radar earlier this year with the bold announcement that he had taken up a week long residency at Leicester Square Theatre to begin recording his much anticipated new album.

Three years after releasing his critically acclaimed album ‘Crazy Beautiful; MOJO “Exceptional”, UNCUT 4/5, Maverick 5/5, Americana UK 4/5, Indie Awards -Blues Track Of The Year, the award winning Tensheds is back bigger and bolder than ever with his self-penned ‘21st Century Blues’ style, and a new line-up of just piano and drums.

Once described as Jerry Lee Lewis & Tom Waits’ love child, Tensheds has drawn many comparisons with his music from Dylan to Kate Bush, Jools Holland to Rachmaninoff - he was even described as ‘A cross between Lady Gaga & Nick Cave’ by one particular reviewer. Needless to say that Tensheds; a classically trained pianist from the Royal Academy, is a world class performer which is why the likes of John Mayal, Mick Taylor, James Burton, Manfred Mann, Paul Young have all invited his to support them. In fact Hazel O’Connor was so taken with Tensheds that she personally invited him as Special Guest on five of her UK Tours.

To coincide with the release of his new album Tensheds is planning a National and European tour in 2015.
