Tenille Arts stormed the iTunes charts by debuting at #1 on the Canadian Country chart and #10 on the overall Canadian iTunes chart with her debut self-titled EP last month. This week, streaming giant Pandora named the powerhouse singer/songwriter as one of their 2017 “Country Artists To Watch.”
“It’s so exciting as a new artist to be recognized and placed on a playlist like that,” said an elated Tenille. “It opens up my music to a whole new audience of country music listeners. I’m very grateful for the support from Pandora.”
Tenille co-wrote all six songs on the EP, which was produced by Adam Wheeler and Matt Rovey and released on 19th & Grand Records. She co-wrote three of the songs with Wheeler and partnered with Janelle Arthur, Mark Narmore and Jason Massey to round out the collection.
About Tenille Arts: The 22-year-old behind all of this recent attention is quietly confident country music lover Tenille Arts (her real name) who was raised in the small Canadian prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchawan. She picked up the guitar and penned her first song at the age of 13 and has been performing across the US and Canada ever since. She made the move to Nashville one short year ago, and a songwriting session late last year turned her life upside down in a very positive way, when she was noticed by award-winning producer Matt Rovey (Craig Campbell, Dean Brody), songwriter/producer Adam Wheeler and Noble Vision Music Group head Hal Oven.
Videos on her YouTube channel have garnered over 750,000 views and led to her being featured twice on Bob Kingsley’s nationally syndicated Country Top 40 Countdown and on the Woody and Jim morning show on 107.5 The River in Nashville. After stumbling onto some of her online videos, popular country website whiskeyriff.com recently labeled Tenille a “new country artist name you need to know immediately.”
