TanerÃ©lle is not new to the game, but she’s just beginning to break through into mainstream in the last couple of years. The young artist has been passionate about music since she was little, and that passion is something that you can definitely hear in her songs. The singer/songwriter’s latest single, Won’t, was released the beginning of this year, and it has put TanerÃ©lle on the map again. Many of her fans have wanted her to produce more music; and if you happen to not know about her just yet, this might be a good time to catch up on TanerÃ©lle. Here are 10 things you probably don’t know about this gem of a musician to get you started.
Many artists have produced successful careers by just going on with a single name. You’ve got BeyoncÃ©, and there’s Shakira. Then there’s also Madonna, Adele, Rihanna, and so many more. According to Celebsiren.com, our young artist’s full name is TanerÃ©lle Stephens. We can imagine why she dropped her last name. It has a nice ring to it, but it doesn’t do much at the end of the day. Her first name is so unique that it’s all she really needs to stand out on a long list of names. It’s highly likely that she’s the only one in the world with her name–her mom made it up.
A lot of successful musicians have come from Atlanta, Georgia. It’s one place in the south that seems to just breed good music. It comes to no surprise that TanerÃ©lle was actually born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1994. However in pursuit of success, the singer moved to Los Angeles when she was only 18 years old. It seems like it’s been a good move so far because she’s released a number of great singles since then.
Apart from being a singer, TanerÃ©lle is also credited as a model. You wouldn’t be able to guess from just looking at her photos, but this young beauty happens to be 6 feet tall. Being tall is naturally a modeling requirement, but TanerÃ©lle could probably pull it off even if she wasn’t as tall. While modeling is certainly an attractive career, TanerÃ©lle is more focused on her music these days than anything else. She’s putting in all her energy towards her songs, and it’s been paying off.
As if singing and modeling weren’t enough, TanerÃ©lle also happens to be an actress. According to an interview with Fomoblog.com, this talented woman got her BFA in acting after moving to Los Angeles. Film is another passion of hers, and she felt that obtaining a degree in acting is something she needed to do in order to improve her skills. So far, TanerÃ©lle has a couple of acting credits. She was a waitress in a 2016 film, Wolf Mother, and she also acted in a 2019 short film, Pretty Dudes: The Double Entendre.
According to this article on Out.com, TanerÃ©lle is bisexual. She claims that this is the reason why she writes her songs the way she does. She tends to not use pronouns in her lyrics in order to be more [gender fluid] with her music. She may have written songs about men in the past, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that those songs were actually written about the opposite sex. For example, Love From NGC 7318 was written for a girl in TanerÃ©lle’s life, but it was written out as addressed to a man.
One of the reasons why TanerÃ©lle started to get noticed on the mainstream was because of her social media following. Her music on Spotify virally got 3 million streams in a matter of what seemed like days, and her Instagram blew up around the same time as well. TanerÃ©lle has more than 65,000 followers on Instagram, and it’s a decent beginning for someone just blossoming. Her social media presence continues to grow, as she continues to reveal herself to the world through her craft.
While music-streaming services have labeled TanerÃ©lle’s music into various genres in the past, she believes that her music actually transcends all the labeling. Music sites have categorized her songs as pop, R&B, soul, and even electronica. But TanerÃ©lle says that she makes all kinds of sounds. She believes that music is bigger than labeling; and the more we listen to her songs, the more we understand. She’s versatile as ever. If she ever comes out with a rock album, we’re pretty sure it’s going to be a good one.
Many artists struggle financially, and when that’s the case, it becomes difficult to get projects off the ground. TanerÃ©lle was no exception. She moved to LA to pursue her career, but she was also attending school at the time. She was also really just so young. She worked on her music but struggled financially. So she made use of her resources and started a Kickstarter to fund an album. In an interview with Rollingout.com, TanerÃ©lle claims that she got more money than what she requested, and the end result was an incredible 7-song EP called 11:11.
If you happen to like H&M and shop there frequently, you might have heard one of TanerÃ©lle’s song on repeat. The song in question was In Women We Trust. H&M had this song on heavy rotation back in 2017, and we can’t blame them. The song was catchy and rhythmic. It made you feel like you were doing something more important than just browsing through clothing.
As she’s gotten older, TanerÃ©lle believes that she’s developed a keener sense of who she really is and what she believes in. She believes in the fight for feminist rights, and she’s also extremely passionate about her ethnicity. One goal she has with her art is unity–to unite women and to unite black people. TanerÃ©lle believes that through her music, she can help people feel and ultimately heal.
