by Tenille Arts



Indie artist/songwriter Tenille Arts was born and raised in the small, Canadian prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan. Tenille’s dream of performing country music took root at the age of 8, when a neighbor overheard her singing a Shania Twain song in her backyard and encouraged her mom to help her pursue music. After years of dance, piano, and vocal lessons, and soaking up a lot of Dixie Chicks and other favorites, Tenille began making the long trip to Nashville to advance her songwriting skills. Her hard work, determination, and talent led to steadily increasing successes as she earned a publishing deal, moved to Nashville, and saw her 2016 debut EP peak at #1 on the iTunes Canada Country Albums Chart as well as crack the top 100 on the U.S. iTunes Country Albums Chart. In 2017, she surpassed a million streams on Apple Music and 2 million total streams. Tenille’s song “Cold Feet” has helped grow her fanbase with a popular video, while receiving much critical acclaim, including a rare feature article on an independent release by Tom Roland in Billboard Country. Arts releases her first full-length album “Rebel Child” in October 2017, having co-written 10 of the 11 songs on the collection.
