Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, Teneia is quickly making a name for herself in the Indie music scene. Her angelic voice, unique guitar rhythms, and moving lyrics have helped to solidify her growing reputation as a truly gifted artist, one whose dedication is as strong as her music.
One of Teneia's most recent pieces, Stand, earned a placement in the HBO documentary 'Prom Night in Mississippi,' featuring Morgan Freeman. Stand embodies Teneia's ability as an artist to address deeply rooted social issues fearlessly and confidently. Her true talent however, is how she strips down the audience, leaving their minds filled with reflection and their hearts filled with hope.
Recently signed to SonaBlast Records, Teneia has released her second LP "Confessions of a Scorpio" with her bandmates, The Highlands,September 2011. 'Love You Thru Words' was picked by the fans to become the first single off of the highly anticipated record because of its soothing melody and profound lyrics. Teneia states "this record has been the most fun to make and simultaneously the hardest. I had to give up a lot of control and really listen to others to make this record what it should be. Mauriece Hamilton (producer & bandmate) and I have clicked from day one. He really understands me as an artist and really makes me dig deep to find the soul and possibilities that I can achieve in being present in the music. I think this record will be a success because of all the hard work that is being done and the talent that is attached to it."
