Tensheds - the piano bashing, guitar swinging, husky voiced hobo.

An individual with a chameleon like personality. An artist who wont conform to a stereotype but who lives his life in a time old tradition. A free spirit with humble charm.

For the past few years Tensheds has dedicated himself to his craft, and now his hard working earnestness is now paying off.

He won the Performing Rights Society UK Unsigned Award in 2008, the Northern Trax Making It Big Award in 2009, a Celtic Connections Danny Award in Jan 2011, Pure Rawk Best Blues Track Of The Year, and even found time to set the World Record for the Most Gigs Performed in 24 Hours - performing 8 shows in 8 different cities - in aid of the Railway Children.

His latest record, Crazy Beautiful, gained critical acclaim across the board with MOJO describing him as “Exceptional”, receiving four stars in UNCUT and was hailed by Get Ready To Rock as “Record of the Year”. It also touched the hearts of fans and sceptics alike, breaking down any perceived notion of this individual artist.
