Mysterious singer-songwriter, INJIN, has led quite the life in the music industry as part of the classic rock’n’roll years and now he is back with his own solo material and the beautifully crafted track, ‘Tennessee’.
INJIN had a difficult youth due to him having a rare condition that stopped him growing at the young age of just seven. This led to him being bullied during his school years, but fortunately, he was one of very few chosen for groundbreaking treatment that cured his ailment. Since then, INJIN has rubbed shoulders with some of the best in the business including members of Santana and even Jimi Hendrix’s drummer.
INJIN’s difficult past gave him the knowledge and experience that he needed to grow as a musician and his confidence soon grew as well as he began to push musical boundaries, re-arranging songs from the likes of Pink Floyd, Ten Years After and Deep Purple with his cover band Ruby Spoon. INJIN then took the name Ruby Spoon to America where his trademark vocals and personality made him stand out from the crowd.
Having been part of this key period in rock’n’roll history, INJIN knows what makes good music and this is at the heart of what he does. He feels that in recent years, a certain personal touch has been lost in the creating process and he is aiming to put this back into music of the modern day.
Exploring a native American soundscape, INJIN’s ‘Tennessee’ has a mystical haunting sound, marrying pacific wind instruments with electric guitars, layered over deep, resonant synths and INJIN’s powerful vocals.
