I was fortunate enough to get Teresa Jenee to answer a few questions for me as an extra feature. Take a second to check it out!
TJ: My biggest influences were in the gospel, soft rock and neo soul genres. I listened to a lot of Clark Sisters, Kim Burrell, Elton John, and Erykah Badu.
TJ: Ha! Yeah…I’ve never had a desire to sing gospel music. I mean, what IS gospel anyway? Just a title. I feel that the message within the song defines that title, not the other way around. In a way I do think I am singing “gospel”…just not in the format or package some Christians would expect me to.
TJ: “Suicide Revenge” is my favorite by far. Its based out of my pain. Its still touches me on my bad days. I feel powerful after hearing it. “In Your Eyes”, “Hello”, “Break My Heart”, are all songs I love, but that “Suicide Revenge”…holds a special place within.
you. Is there a story behind that particular song?
TJ: “Suicide Revenge” is my “revenge” on my planned self destruction back in 2010. Hard to talk about outside of the song, but it happened to me. Life pushed me to my edge…this song is my personal testimony.
TJ: I’m planning some regional tours starting this summer going into the fall. My album (that I had to push back) should be done by then. The tentative title for it is “The EK2: Live In Studio”.
