Talented musicians can seemingly pull magical moments out of thin air, even in less than ideal conditions. Like a hot tent backstage at a festival with 80,000 music fans and million-dollar sound systems competing for your attention. That’s exactly what Belgian-Egyptian singer-songwriter Tamino did when he picked up the Gibson in our pop-up recording studio during the first weekend of the Austin City Limits music festival and played us “Fascination” off of his just released sophomore album, Sahar. As you can hear, it turned out to be the perfect introduction to the beautiful voice and bright-eyed songwriting that has earned him comparisons to Jeff Buckley. Watch his performance from backstage at ACL and follow his extensive European tour with the links below.
