While Tenille Arts is singing her new release “Call You Names,” the rest of the world can call her a double SCMA winner. The Reviver Records artist walked away with trophies for “Female Vocalist of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year” for the second consecutive year at the 30th Annual Saskatchewan Country Music Awards, held this past weekend in Saskatoon and hosted by Tenille’s label mate Aaron Goodvin.
“Last night was a dream,” said Tenille, who hails from Weyburn, Saskatchewan. “Thank you to the SCMAs and everyone who voted. None of this would be possible without the support of my home province, and it means the world to me that I’m always welcomed back home with open arms! There are so many people behind the scenes who have helped me get to this place. This is amazing!”
Tenille is back on the road today heading to dates in Pennsylvania and New York promoting her new “Call You Names” single this week.
About Tenille Arts: Born and raised in the small prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Tenille Arts 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 her first appearance on The Bachelor in January 2018 singing her original song “Moment of Weakness.” The performance resulted in a record deal with powerhouse indie label Reviver Records. Millions of viewers caught Tenille performing “I Hate This” on her second Bachelor appearance in January. The song hit #1 on both the U.S. and Canadian iTunes Country Charts and #9 U.S. iTunes all-genre following the appearance.
Tenille has released an EP and a full-length album, and her music has tallied over eight million streams. Noted music critic Tom Roland was so moved by her music that he has penned two full-page features in the Billboard Country Update. Music Row Magazine critic Robert K. Oermann called Tenille “Promising in the extreme.” Streaming giant Pandora named her one of their new artists to watch, and CMT included her in their “Ten Must-See Indies You Need to Know,” a video discovery program that spotlights rising independent artists and established artists from independent labels. Rolling Stone named Tenille one of their “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” calling her “An edgy, Fearless-era Taylor Swift with crystalline vocals; ideal for hopeless romantics who are fire signs,” and PopCulture.com named her one of their “Country Artists to Watch in 2018.”
