John Vella


Composer, songwriter, producer and frontman of Sydney group Tenderfoot


Australian John Vella is a composer, songwriter, and producer, as well as the frontman — lead singer and guitarist — for Sydney group Tenderfoot. The band’s organic sound is reminiscent of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and The Band, with a splash of Coldplay; translating the feel of performing live in the room to the recording. Tenderfoot follows up its EP “Beginnings” with debut studio album “To Be Young” which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios with producer Julian Emery and the English Session Orchestra. While working outside of the band, John continues to stoke his passion to create music, crafting for a wide array of brands — QANTAS, Huggies, and Telstra, to name a few — as well as producing records for other artists.
