TENDRE’s first EP ”RED FOCUS” was well-received among the music fans and media in Japan, and just six months after the EP release, he got to play FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL, one of the biggest music festivals in Japan. Since then, he has been playing major music festivals and his performances gained a great deal of acclaim. When TENDRE’s first album “NOT IN ALMIGHTY” came out in 2018, it topped on the iTunes Store’s R&B/Soul chart.
TENDRE released singles ‘SIGN’ in April and ‘CHOICE’ in May. ‘SIGN’ attracted attention when its music video in collaboration with Teva Australia came out and it has marked number 4 in “TOKIO HOT 100” of one of the most popular radio stations J-WAVE. Honda Motor Company used ‘ANYWAY’ in their commercials and the video got over 2.6 million plays in the first two weeks after its release.
In July in 2019, TENDRE played at Fuji Rock Festival for the second time. Phony PPL was checking out their sound check and dancing to their performance, and Stella Donnelly mentioned their show in the interview as well. Moreover, they enjoyed their souldout-solo-tour in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka in June.
TENDRE is a multi-instrument player. He plays the piano, bass, guitars, and saxophones. His solo performance can be seen on REDBULL’s official website and the music media calls him “Japanese FJK”.
TENDRE is planning to release a long-awated “IN SIGHT – EP” in this October.
