(Rules of The Gauntlet: The artist (in this case, Tennessee based rock and blues-soul singer, Jenny Teator) is sent a butt ton of questions ranging from standard to stupid from which they must choose at least 12 to answer and return them to us with a minimum of tear stains).
What are you working on right now?
Jenny Teator: I just released a song called “Daughter of the Devil” on November 8th and the music video! You can find it on my YouTube and Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, etc.
Why do you make your style of music? Why not polka? or Japanese symphonic folk metal? or..?
JT: Because it makes me feel good, and its coming from the heart. It’s what I know, and feel. I don’t know anything about Polka or folk metal haha so that is why I do not make that style.
How often do you work on your music?
JT: Every day if not, every other day.
Do you have names for your instruments? If so what are they?
JT: Yes! My electric guitar is named Susan, after Susan Tedeschi, and my acoustic guitar is named Bonnie, after Bonnie Raitt. My amp is named Voxxanne.
Any tours planned?
JT: Yes, I’ll be in Naples, FL area the first week of December.
Top five favorite albums?
JT: Made up Mind by Tedeschi Trucks Band, Come Away with Me by Norah Jones, Rumors by Fleetwood Mac, The 2020 Experience by Justin Timberlake, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (Self titled).
What really pisses you off?
Worst thing ever eaten?
If you had a time machine what would you do with it?
JT: Go see my parents as kids. My mom was born in Cuba, so I’d want to go there and see what life was like and her as a child!
Where do your song names come from?
JT: Usually from the lyrics in the song, which is usually derived from a personal experience. It summarizes the song topic or theme. “Daughter of the Devil” was literally a title that was brought into the writing and we wrote off of that title, haha.
