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 Pop, it's contemporary R&B, it's Nu-Disco, some say it's (a reasonable version of) R Kelly-meets-Osho-in-the-Doha-desert. It evokes the present, past and future of music.
Giordano Tatum Rush was born in San Diego, California, and since receiving a bachelor in performance art in Geneva he has been working between Lausanne, Paris, Berlin and Milan, collaborating with artists as diverse as Zap Mama, Richard Dorfmeister, Björn Magnusson, Fai Baba or Tsunano, songwriting, recording, video-making, dancing and producing - sometimes under various pseudonyms. Tatum's musical influences are broad as the Nile river and you might catch midnight glimpses of Patrice Rushen, Erykah Badu, Marcellus Pittman, Panjabi MC, Tom Jobim, but also Frank Ocean, Sébastien Tellier or Jai Paul.
Tatum writes and produces his own music often in collaboration with producer Ceri from the Milan-based 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.
