JioSaavn - Live Anywhere: Tejas
JioSaavn, India’s largest music and audio entertainment streaming service, is announcing its initiative to keep live music, and artists’ incomes, alive. For the month of April, and possibly longer, a series of independent artists will take to the virtual stage for 20 or 30-minute performances on JioSaavn’s Facebook Live. The audio recording of each session will then be hosted as an album for streaming within the JioSaavn app. 100% of the revenue generated from these streams will go directly to the artist.
Tejas is an original pop rock artist from Bombay, India whose music has brought together a community of people who appreciate that a singer songwriter does not need to be defined by a single genre, but a variety of sounds and landscapes that Tejas now uses to define his own signature sounds. Whether it’s a 4 piece horn section, synthesizers, heavy guitars or just a single acoustic guitar, Tejas’ musical adventures have taken him to places that have allowed him to push well past his creative limits, all while keeping one foot firmly in pop-rock. Tejas’ lyrics speak about his own life and stories inspired by his own journey to find his own identity, having lived in multiple cities and having grown up outside his home country and his vocal delivery is pretty sweet too, echoing a blend of Craig David, Sting and Amos Lee.
He has played at the biggest festivals in India including Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Kala Ghoda Arts Festival and Mahindra Blues Festival. Tejas’ unique approach to design and social media along with his signature musical style have grown his sizable fan base over the years to make sure his band sets are packed with manic energy and solo sets are filled with quiet listeners. After releasing his debut EP Small Victories in late 2014, and crowdfunding his new LP in a record-breaking 6-hour window, he now is ready with his follow up and biggest release yet ‘Make It Happen’.
