Tenderlonious, 22a label boss and multi-instrumentalist, has been putting out some high psi vibes and all that with his jazz-inspired grooves and beats in his own guise as well as with band mates that make up Ruby Rushton.
Ruby Rushton recently released their second album, Trudi’s Songbook: Volume One. This video sees the band, including Mo Kolours on percussion, give a live rendition of Moonlight Woman.
What particularly stands out about Ruby Rushton is that you are seeing a group of like-minded souls jamming with the same intention, that being purely for the love of their art form and doing what feels right for them. They are all aligned with the same purpose. You can see that, you can feel that in the energy as the group play together – it’s pure and real.
Tenderlonious says: “We’re just doing what feels right to us. We are not following any particular protocol, no trends. We are not really interested in appealing wherever the sales is at, wherever the gigs is at whatever. We’re just more about expressing ourselves for now whether or not we are going to get out there, whether or not we are going to get the opportunity to play out on stage or to release our music. It’s about having a good time.”
Like the rest of his band mates, Tenderlonious’s musical skills are formidable. But it’s also the energy that he carries about who he is and what he’s about that carries through in the music, and makes it phenomenal. He doesn’t follow the “norms” and “conventions” of society’s beliefs about musicians.
Tenderlonious started his own record label which continues to put releases out on vinyl, he’s found his musical family or tribe and continues to nurture each and every one of them, and he don’t give two hoots about how it all “fits” into the “conventional” world.
Tenderlonious is an inspiration for many artists, musicians and those on a spiritual quest, who like him, “are here to change this world not to be changed by it”.
