From Teneia Sanders
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. Teneia’s folk and soul roots have been developing since the tender age of ten when she started singing in her church choir. It wasn’t long before she realized singing would become her lifelong passion. “Stand,” from 2011's "Confessions Of A Scorpio," 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.
