You could run into a show of American/Swiss-Italian songwriter, producer, performer and singer Tatum Rush at an underground club in New York, sure, but quite possibly also at a decadent rooftop party in an 18th century estate in Rome. It's contemporary R&B, it's Pop, it's Nu-Disco, some say it's (a reasonable version of) R Kelly-meets-Osho-in-the-Doha-desert. It evokes of the present, past and future of music.
Giordano Tatum Rush was born in San Diego, California, and since graduating from art school in Geneva he has been working between Lausanne, Paris, Berlin and Milan, collaborating with artists as diverse as Zap Mama, Richard Dorfmeister, Fai Baba or Tsunano, songwriting, recording, video-making, dancing and producing - sometimes under various pseudonyms. Among Tatum's musical influences you will find Erykah Badu, Barry White, Caetano Veloso or Jorge Ben, but also Frank Ocean, Kaytranada, Anderson .Paak or Jai Paul.
Tatum writes and produces his own music often in collaboration with producer Ceri from the Italian record label Undamento. During his live shows he is escorted by DJ Bauchamp and his manager of unknown origins, Chad Murray, and always wears a black silk-like scarf on his head. Besides recording for his solo project Tatum Rush is currently producing Zap Mama's upcoming EP featuring Vincent Cassel, Seu Jorge and more.
