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 performing her original song “Moment of Weakness.” The appearance resulted in a record deal with powerhouse indie label Reviver Records.
She returned to The Bachelor in January 2019 to perform her original song “I Hate This.” The day following the appearance, the single hit #1 on the U.S. and Canadian iTunes Country Charts, #6 all-genre and #2 music video. Her 2017 Rebel Child album re-entered the iTunes Country Albums Chart at #4.
Tenille’s music has tallied over eight million streams. 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." 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 named her one of their "Country Artists to Watch in 2018."
Reviver shipped Tenille’s “Call You Names” single and video in mid-2019. The touching song is both a tribute and apology to her mother for “those teen years.”
