From New York to Nashville! Jenna Torres has arrived in Music City. Torres’ new music video for her song “Where The Love Is” can be seen below. Growing up in New York, Jenna could feel the music within her. Jenna played in various bands growing up, but it was not until she discovered the profession of songwriting which she has not gone back on since. The feeling of music within her is how she starts her unique songwriting process, as she likes to paint a picture in her mind of a song she sees and feels.
Jenna chose country music because “there is something so powerful and the way country music appreciates and embraces women, not just girls. It may be unspoken, but there is a reverence for the wisdom and worth of a woman's journey.” While she may have been born in the Big Apple, her soul is drawn to the language, sounds, and sincerity of country music. “It’s not anything I actually think about, it’s just what I do naturally.” Torres has learned to listen to her own voice and be true to it, regardless of whether it fits into a box that has already been made or not.
Torres idolizes the one and only queen of country music Dolly Parton, but also states Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, and Brandi Carlile as her inspiration among many others in the field as she has an endless love for artists! With her own music, Torres has worked with Stephen Leiweke (Lauren Daigle and Chris Tomlin) and recently collaborated with Charlie Chamberlain on an upcoming project. Stay tuned for that! Torres’ advice to artists getting into the industry?” Be You! There are so many amazing people making music today. It may sound cliche, but I really think it's all about finding your own voice and staying true to it.”
You can find Jenna’s music on all streaming platforms, on Twitter @jennatorres and on Instagram @jennatorresmusic. For more information check out https://www.jennatorres.com.
Rhonda Towns always knew that her voice would bring people together. Growing up as the daughter of a pastor, her father encouraged her to sing his favorite hymns to the congregation prior to his sermons. Southern church hymns like, “Amazing Grace,” “Jesus Loves Me,” “This Little Light of Mine,” and “Rock of Ages” were staples that Rhonda would sing. The uplifting beat and simplistic storylines is what makes them so comforting and so easy to find solace in. Rhonda loves country music for the same reason.
Growing up in Alabama, Rhonda was given the foundation from an early age the importance of helping and reaching out to others. She would deliver meals to the elderly in the community with her brother and mother and remembers what a moving experience it was. Not only was she actively involved in community outreach, she was a member of the student body government, school choir, cheerleading squad, track and field, and the volleyball team. She entered school talent shows and won, knowing then that she possessed something special. Whether in church, on the school bus, in the gym or just singing in the rain - her voice had the ability to unite people.
Rhonda believes her unique sound is created through her conviction to the words, “Whether I’ve written the lyrics or the storyline has been written by another - and being able to feel and translate the lyrics with emotion as the messenger is to deliver its meaning.” Her songwriting process is quite literally a dream. Most of the songs Rhonda has written have come to her while she was asleep. She says she can actually hear the music and the key of the song in these dreams, waking up immediately to voice record what she is hearing.
Obviously, family has been such a huge inspiration for Rhonda throughout her career. Her mother always said, “If they can do it, you can do it too!” while her father’s advice was, “Never give up and when you feel like you can no longer stand, you stand there anyway.” When asked what advice she would give to an inspiring artist she said, “Stay close to your loved ones. Surround yourself with people, and a team, you can trust and who actually cares about you and your career.”
Performing live is such a blessing that all artists have now realized to never take for granted. Rhonda’s favorite part about her performances is the opportunity to form a connection with the audience; hoping to make each and every one of them feel the words that are coming out of her mouth. She shares stories in her songs, and she hopes it is one they can understand and relate to. Her favorite venues are Country Thunder USA, CMA Music Festival, Bluebird Cafe, Douglas Corner, Chandler City for the Arts and most importantly, Church. Rhonda has had the privilege and joy to work with Norro Wilson (producer for Kenny Chesney/Reba/Sara Evans/Shania Twain), Harold Shedd, Jim Cotton, Billy Williams and Billy Sherril.
Rhonda’s favorite song is her current single, “Walking In Your Wonderful Light.” Speaking about what this song means to her Rhonda said, “I recorded this song back in 2012 - before I knew that I was headed toward a very sad time in my life. I went through a personal experience and didn’t want to sing again! This song is my resurrection song. It was my confirmation that when our Heavenly Father said these last words on the Cross, ‘It is Finished,’ it means that we are in a finished work; it’s already done!” Rhonda listened to the recording of the song following the conclusion of her twenty-two year marriage. She felt a confirmation wash over her and she knew she was walking in God’s wonderful light (despite not feeling like it at the time), she just had to keep walking and not give up! It is no wonder that Rhonda said her motivational word for the year is, “Love.” The love from our Heavenly Father is what encouraged her to push forward so she could release this song as a message to others who are battling depression, sadness and pain. Rhonda says, “‘Walking In Your Wonderful Light” is the promise that He would bring me back to my true love and that is to sing for Him!
