Tenny Rudolph has emerged, in recent years, as Duval’s cultural-scene’s most visible artist. He’s a sought after lens-person, his hyper-stylized and singular film photography landing him exhibitions of his work locally and gigs with international brands. Meanwhile, Rudolph’s own personal (and equally singular) style has made him a popular subject in the images of his fellow lens-people.
While he remains in view, Rudolph makes noise, too, in the city’s increasingly vibrant music scene. He dropped the sultry and chill-AF R&B jam “One More Chance” in the spring of 2020. And a new single “Make U Feel” promises to keep Rudolph in the spotlight in 2021.
“Kiss you on a Saturday, make you feel on Sunday morning,” Rudolph sings his auto-tuned vocals brimming with coy confidence. Similar to his film photography, Rudolph’s music is a kind of amalgamation of vintage styles. And “Make U Feel” eases comfortably into 90s Deep House. And like everything the young artist seems to do, the new track will make you feel.
