INTERVIEW: We recently talked with musician Jenny Teator as she discusses her new single "Daughter of the Devil", Her workouts, her dream lineup and MORE HERE
Listening to your music, who would you say has influenced your sound today the most?
Jenny Teator: Grace Potter.
Describe the process in which each of you took to develop who you have become today.
Jenny Teator: Honestly, it came very naturally for me and the team to "brand" my sound and image. There was no facade, no hidden agendas or pushed images on me. They believed in me from the start and we never had to create something that wasn’t genuinely me which I loved. I think the industry can sometimes pressure you to be someone you’re not and that was my first boundary going into this career- I wasn’t going to let that happen and wanted to keep my foundation honest. I basically took all the things that I love, believe in and promote and blended it into an organic…me as an artist. I love black. I wear hats. I have a positive mindset and encourage others to embrace their beliefs and feelings. I’m also sassy and like to have fun. You see all of this in my “brand” if you’d like to call it that, but I’m just me in the end!
You like to work out- what is your favorite exercise and what is on your workout playlist?
Jenny Teator: I love doing HIIT workouts, its a total body workout and I just feel so good after. Also… booty workouts haha. All about it. I usually listen to pop music playlists consisting of Lizzo, Dua Lipa, Anne Marie, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran etc!
Since music seems to have different feels in different locations... have you seen a change in your area this past year?
Jenny Teator: I have. I’ve noticed in Nashville there is a growing rock and pop scene (which is awesome). Most people say “Oh you live in Nashville- so you’re country?”. But if you don’t live there, you don’t see that the music scene is absolutely flourishing in other genres. Stereotypically, Nashville is known for country- but times have changed and there's other genres the are thriving there and I love it! Times are changing and I’m so ready to create a new scene with my music and join forces with others alike there, its already begun.
Talk about your latest music project. Who wrote it? Is it about anyone/anything in particular? Where was it recorded? Did you work with a particular producer?
Jenny Teator: I just released a song and music video called “Daughter of the Devil”. I wrote it with Drew Dixon in Nashville, TN. There's not really a deep meaning to it, it’s not about anyone in particular its more fictional. I recorded it at Red 13 Studios in Framingham, MA which is also where my first single was recorded. The producers are Shaun Lichtenstien and Mark Roberge also known as OH NO! ØKTAPUS.
Plans in the works forward?
Jenny Teator: We are in the works of recording more songs to work towards releasing an EP in 2020 and also touring!! Stay with me, timing is everything.
Dream lineup- what four bands would you like to tour with and what festival would you like to play on most?
Jenny Teator: Blackberry Smoke, Grace Potter, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and Gary Clark Jr! I’d love to play Lollapalooza or Coachella.
