Tejas made it happen
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.
