Heart Society began as the solo work of Alicia Teneia Sanders-Eichelberger. A natural performer her whole life, Sanders-Eichelberger got her start singing in churches and school choirs while growing up in Jackson, MS. After learning guitar at eighteen and playing venues around Jackson, she moved to Louisville, KY and pursued a full-time career in singing and songwriting. She became popular in the Louisville scene for her angelic voice and raw, honest lyrics, while also enjoying international acclaim for her recorded work.
In 2010 Sanders-Eichelberger relocated to Phoenix, AZ, and in 2012 she met her future husband, Benjamin Eichelberger. The two gravitated toward each other, fueled by a love for music and a passion to connect with people in an authentic way. By 2014 the pair was performing as a duo under the name Teneia, and in 2015 the couple decided to take their music on the road full-time to spread a message of love and equality. After completing a successful crowdfunding campaign, Benjamin left his career as a pilot, they sold most of their possessions, and hit the road in a 32-foot travel trailer. In 2017 Teneia and Benjamin renamed the duo Heart Society to better reflect the intent behind their music.
Heart Society‘s infectious, groove-heavy blend of Folk/Soul Rock 'n Roll will make you want to get out of your seat and dance, and Teneia‘s inspiring vocals will stir your heart. The band‘s debut EP Wake the Queens is centered on female empowerment and unapologetic authenticity, and is an invitation for every listener to shed convention and become a powerful force for good in the world.
