Tenderly is a track that features heartfelt lyrics about how we all need love, just as we all need air and water. It also features the Weissenborn, an instrument I was not familiar with. This style of guitar is used on the lap and creates a completely different sound.
The track is taken from Floating In The Darkness, the first vocalised Thomas Oliver album released last April.
Tenderly was filmed against the backdrop of South Australia’s Flinders Ranges; sweeping shots of the Australian Outback under the scorching summer sun with a lone Oliver and his trusty guitar. The clip perfectly complements the smooth vocal harmonies and layered instrumentation.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
