From the Royal Academy of Music to blues hobo, from John Mayall to the House of Lords, from recording in a barn to opening the Isle Of Wight festival, the world of Tensheds is anything but ordinary.
Tensheds’ audacious showmanship deftly delivers a brand of gritty, heavy, edgy blues/punk, which incorporate elements of this classical background. Back with a new album and line-up consisting of only himself on piano and Ed Wells on drums, this duo take no prisoners when they deliver what Tensheds has coined “21st Century Blues”. For the uninitiated think ‘The White Stripes meets Tom Waits via Jerry Lee Lewis’.
In 2015, this punk prince crashed back into the music scene like a cannonball. His latest album entitled ‘The Dandy Punk Prince’ released earlier this year, four years after the award winning ‘Crazy Beautiful’, is rightfully generating buzz in the press, with Classic Rock Magazine declaring “You’ll believe the hype” and Vive Le Rock hailing him a “Genius”, not to mention extensive BBC Radio play and live sessions.
Tensheds has honed his persona over many years in the time-honoured tradition, hoboing the road, supporting and guesting for the likes of John Mayall, Mick Taylor, Hazel O’Connor, Roger Chapman, The Blockheads and James Burton. Throw in recent tours with Jim Jones and Bad Seeds drummer Jim Sclavunos and what you get live is a finely tuned, electrifying and totally unique performer. It’s no wonder he’s been labelled “Jerry Lee Lewis and Tom Waits’ love child”.
