‘Catch of the Day’ – Tenille Arts – “Cold Feet” [VIDEO]
Today we feature an artist who would have normally been featured on indy Thursday, but sometimes a song comes along with such power and artists with such intensity, labels can’t be placed on it. Today is just one such of those artists and songs.
Tenille Arts is becoming proof of the old adage that luck is the reside of a little hard work and a lot of determination. At the beginning of 2016, no one had heard of the young Canadian singer and then her self-titled debut EP was named the Saskatoon Country Music Association’s Album of the Year. And while that may not sound like a major accomplishment, one must realize that the largest avalanches start with the lightest of snowfalls. From there, her EP was named to the year-end top-10 by Canada’s Sask Music, naming it #4 for the year; WhiskeyRiff.com called her a “new country artist you need to know IMMEDIATELY”, and MusicRow magazine called “Wildfire and Whiskey“, a cut from her debut EP “…a lightly rocking, ridiculously catchy, brightly shining gem about falling head over heels. Promising in the extreme.”
Born and raised in the prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan Canada, a neighbor heard Tenille singing at the age of 8 and encouraged her mother to pursue vocal and piano lessons. She was just 13 when she wrote her first song, and performed on
stages across Canada throughout her teen years. A youtube video of one of those performances led to her being contacted by a manager from Nashville, leading to a recording contract offer, but when it was time to sign on the dotted line, the timing just wasn’t right and Arts turned the deal down. She decided to keep working on her writing and performing, while finishing high school.
She returned to Nashville in 2015, a writing trip that led to a publishing deal with the Noble Vision Music Group. Now 21, she made the leap of faith, moving to Nashville full time and concentrating on making her music, her way. The result, in October of 2016 was the debut of her self-titled, self-produced indy EP that has garnered plenty of attention around Nashville and elsewhere, causing ears to perk up across the music industry.
