Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, Teneia is an internationally touring musician and songwriter with six 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. With folk-soul roots and infectious hooks, she teeters on the edge of defining a new sound and genre, all while spreading a message of love and equality.
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 leaves the audience’s minds filled with reflection and their hearts filled with hope.
