"His falsetto, at times, sits between Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and the Middle East’s Jordan Ireland—hauntingly beautiful and tense at the same time " - AAA Backstage.
After their live show was seen by Audio Network’s global head of music in late 2015, the band were offered the opportunity to record and orchestrate their debut album ’To Be Young’ at Abbey Road Studios in London (Out June 1). The process quickly evolved to include UK producer/songwriter Julian Emery.
Pairing up over Skype, Emery and frontman Vella quickly penned what would be the become the foundation of the record, before the band travelled from Australia to the UK to add flavours from the English Session Orchestra and the original upright pianos used by The Beatles.
Lead single ‘The Balance’ is hauntingly catchy; led by a deep groove, ambient arrangement and Vella's lilting falsetto. 'The Balance' takes the listener deep into a new world, one that simmers from the past through to the present.
Tenderfoot’s debut EP ‘Beginnings’ has received multiple syncs, including placements on Disney Channel, Spanish Moto GP, Davis Cup Highlights, Teen Moms UK, Ex On The Beach and numerous BBC Radio Shows.
Tenderfoot have been featured on Australian radio station Triple J’s ‘Home and Hosed’ and ‘Roots n All’ programs.
Their debut album 'To Be Young' will be available June 1.
