Agility, passion, power, delicacy — Teneia Sanders-Eichelberger’s voice has it all. Named the “Best Female Vocalist” of 2015 by the Phoenix New Times, Teneia is making a stop in Rock Springs as part of the Broadway Theater’s “Live in the Lobby” series. Together with her husband, Ben Eichelberger, the singer-songwriter will perform at the Broadway on Friday, October 14 at 8:00 p.m. for a suggested donation of $10 per person.
The daughter of a Mississippi preacher, Teneia grew up singing gospel in church, and the original music she creates today combines elements of folk, soul, Southern gospel, blues, and easy-listening pop. According to Phoenix New Times music editor David Accomazzo, “With the skill of a jazz singer and a warm, disarming stage presence, Teneia can make her voice do just about anything — charm you into a hypnotic trance, make your heart beat faster, or motivate you to get out of your chair and dance.” In the summer of 2015, the duo set off in an RV on a nomadic musical adventure, and they have only their fans to thank — the RV was the final goal of a successful crowdfunding campaign, in which the singer raised more than $20,000 for the journey. Only a special talent can inspire that type of generosity. The two currently tour the United States full-time. All of Teneia’s music is available internationally on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and many other digital outlets.
