2020 Blues Music Awards Nominee - Brandon Santini | Instrumentalist, Harmonica
Brandon Santini and Jeff Jensen, two incredibly talented individuals are back together again. They have pooled their vast abilities and are creating some fantastic music with their new band - Tennessee Redemption. Steeped in blues, raised on rock’n’roll, inspired by soul, baptized by gospel, and open minded as jazz; this band is an evolution in the personal artistry of its members.
Brandon Santini and Jeff Jensen musically grew up on Beale Street in Memphis, TN. Clocking a combined total of almost 1,000 concerts on Beale, just about 400 of them together at such famous clubs as Rum Boogie Cafe, Mr. Handy’s Blues Hall, Wet Willie’s, B.B. King’s Blues Club and more. Brandon and Jeff also toured around the USA and Canada together from 2011-2013 under the name Brandon Santini & His Band (BSB).
Tennessee Redemption is committed to creating and performing real American roots music without boundaries or boxes. Prolific harmonica from Santini, both clean and melodic or big and driven to wild blues based almost jazz-rock guitar antics of Jeff Jensen all on top of the very creative rhythm section of melodic bassist Bill Ruffino, powerhouse and ultra-musical David Green on drums and the creatively diverse Timo Arthur on guitar, this band just wants to write and play music that connects with people; something both Brandon and Jeff are very proud of.
