Tensheds

Upcoming gigs

There are currently no gigs listed for this artist

Born in the north of England, Tensheds broke rank and trained as a classical pianist at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music. Spending his life at the piano, it is this training forged with his love of the Blues and Rock n Roll that makes his music so unique. Couple this with his individual looks and you can see why MOJO labelled him “A chameleon with an ear for the unexpected”.
 
As a live performer Tensheds has honed his craft through years of excessive touring. Oozing confidence with his formidable keyboard skills and a voice that seems to have lived twice as long as he has, it's no wonder that the likes of John Mayall, Mick Taylor, Manfred Mann, Paul Kelly, Roger Chapman, Paul Young and James Burton have all asked him to support them. In fact Hazel O’Connor was so taken with Tensheds that she personally invited him as support on her last 4 UK Tours.
 
In an era when artists tend to shy away from being individual and are full of blame towards the record industry, Tensheds has proved that hard work and self-belief still pays off. Whether you choose to see this in the numerous awards he has won, the music press he has received, the stages he has performed on - he even played alongside Bruce Springsteen, Noel Gallagher, The Darkness, Tom Petty at the 2012 Isle Of Wight Festival. Remember, this is an unsigned artist!
 
Maybe there’s some truth in this recent live review: 
“His dramatic Rachmaninov-like and then terrifically fast blues keyboard tunes were impressive enough to almost make you believe he had sold his soul to the devil”.
