She's a hometown girl who moved away for a change of scenery, but is always excited to come home. Besides seeing her family and friends and eating at Kyoto (one of her favorite restarurants), Teneia Sanders is stoked to come home this weekend for a particularly special event: her album release party. Sanders' sophomore offering, "Soulcatcher," is personal and genuine. The songstress says she has learned lots about herself and the music industry between her first album and "Soulcatcher." The more she learns, surprisingly, the less pressure Sanders says she feels to fit into a proverbial box.
"I like lots of different types of music. I don't have to do lots of runs to show off vocally. People want to hear the lyrics," she says of her bluesy folk music. "Being settled is important to me."
Teneia Sanders' album release party is at Seven*Studioz Saturday, April 7. Prior to the concert is a forum, "Muse to Music," followed by performances by Laurel Isbister and Rhonda Richmond, and a reception, 6-7 p.m. Sanders takes the stage at 8 p.m.
