Tenise Marie is a 24 year- old singer/songwriter whose ambition is to travel the world and return home to sing about it. She grew up singing Bob Dylan around campfires in Argenta, BC at the north end of beautiful Kootenay Lake. In 2015, Tenise graduated from the Selkirk College Music Program with a diploma in Vocal Performance. Since then, she has been the fortunate recipient of four grants from the Columbia Basin Trust and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance. This greatly appreciated funding resulted in two recordings of original music: Oxygen (2016) and The Sailor & The Gypsy (2018), and two corresponding tours of BC and Alberta in 2017 and 2018. Tenise’s music is deeply rooted in acoustic guitar and honest lyrics, continually growing as her voice matures.
