Tejas made it hap­pen

Mid Day - - CITY -

Singer-song­writer Tejas’s al­bum, Make It Hap­pen, dropped on Fri­day and we haven’t been able to stop lis­ten­ing to it. The 27-year-old started crowd­fund­ing on Wish­berry at the be­gin­ning of this year and the ini­tia­tive seems to have paid off. “Well, first off, the crowd­fund­ing made me take my own al­bum re­ally se­ri­ously. There was no more room for slack­ing off since there were so many peo­ple’s time and money now in­vested in it. But more im­por­tantly, I had to match ev­ery sin­gle ru­pee I re­ceived with my own, to make sure noth­ing else was half-baked. I paid for the mas­ter­ing and art­work and prac­ti­cally ev­ery­thing else to make sure I sus­tained a level of qual­ity with the al­bum,” he told this di­arist.

And, it shows. The al­bum, which will be avail­able ex­clu­sively on Ap­ple Mu­sic for the first week, is a treat to lis­ten to with ‘Wine’ be­ing our favourite. But, if you are hop­ing to catch him per­form­ing any time soon, you will have to wait a bit. “The plan with the al­bum is to let it sim­mer for a bit with lis­ten­ers. I didn’t want to do a tour im­me­di­ately, be­cause I re­ally was look­ing for­ward to peo­ple lis­ten­ing and loop­ing their favourite songs and learn­ing the lyrics and parts, be­cause that’s what my show is good at cre­at­ing: play­ing the songs for lis­ten­ers. For now, there is a tour planned for Novem­berDe­cem­ber.” We can hardly wait.
