Tender Central will be blending classical cello with notes of electronica at the Gylly Beach Cafe this weekend.
The Devon born cellist, real name India Bourne, will be joined by drummer Aaron Graham as she heads out on tour following the 2016 release of her debut single Wake Me Up.
Tender Central's sound merges the classically trained cellist's delicate ear for musical arrangement with notes of electronica that both recall and evolve the sounds of ethereal electronic forbearers Massive Attack, Lamb, Zero 7, Roni Size, and more recently London Grammar, and she has become a favourite by BBC Radio 1's Phil Taggart and Apple Music's Julie Adenug.
This lady is no stranger to the road: she has been a core part of childhood friend Ben Howard’s band from the start, releasing platinum and gold selling albums Every Kingdom and I Forget Where We Were and embarking on a tour that saw them play the world over several years, and more recently she was part of RY-X’s live set up.
Support comes from San Felu, the solo project of writer PJ Pearson which explores his love for old sci-fi and folklore storytelling.
His first single, Cape of Good Hope pays homage to the novel Sirens of Titan by American author Kurt Vonnegut, as well as exploring oceanic ideas inspired by his birthplace in Plymouth.
Tender Central will be appearing for free at The Watering Hole in Perranporth on Saturday, January 21 and The Gylly Beach Café in Falmouth on Sunday, January 22. For more information contact the venues.
