In this episode, we’re debuting our new Conscious Connections segment. Mel interviews Teneia. Teneia is an internationally-touring musician and songwriter, and has seven albums to her credit. She has won multiple awards, had her work featured in television and film, and shared the stage with various critically-acclaimed artists.
One of Teneia’s most prominent 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.
With a career spanning over a decade, Teneia has toured relentlessly throughout the years. Her most recent side project, Heart Society gained recognition through the Sixthman Cayamo music cruise alongside John Prine, Buddy Miller, The War and Treaty, Lee Ann Womack and many more. Heart Society was also selected to perform a three week long tour on the continent of Africa in April of 2019 by the US State Department organization, American Music Abroad. All while spreading a message of love and equality.
Teneia is a visionary with the heart to match. No matter what project she is a part of she always delivers a stellar performance. With folk-soul roots and infectious hooks she teeters on the edge of defining a new sound and genre.
