The Kubota Featured Artist: Tenille Arts
The 23-year-old behind all of this recent attention is a quietly confident country music lover raised in the small Canadian prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan. “I used to watch America Idol,and I wanted to be a singer from an early age. I would set up a stage and just perform for my brother and sisters.”At the age of eight, a neighbor overheard her singing in the backyard and encouraged her mom to help her pursue music. This encounter led Tenille to vocal lessons, piano lessons, and dance training. She wrote her first song at 13, and has performed shows all over Canada since then. Some of her most notable stages include playing at the Craven Country Jamboree, the Boots and Hearts Emerging Artists Showcase, and the recent Canadian Country Music Association Discovery Artist Showcase.
