First Album Fridays: Tenille Townes – The Lemonade Stand

Canadian Country singer Tenille Townes has released a new album entitled The Lemonade Stand. The overall themes are love, heartbreak, women empowerment, and soul searching.  

The music is Country, The guitar, a signature choice for Country music, adds flavour to the album. Each song has a beautiful composition that suits each of the specific themes. The melodies parallel to the works of Shania Twain. The rhythms are incredible and suitable for the particular moods felt in the songs.  

Tenille Townes’s voice is beautiful and rich in tonalities. She has a boldness to her vocal style, especially adapting from one emotion/theme to another. Her fantastic singing style parallels that of Shania Twain and Faith Hill.

The lyrics are romantic and genuine. If you heard Tenille Townes’s EP The Road to the Lemonade Stand, you would notice that five out of the six songs are on her album. According to iTunes’s description, each tune tells a personal story through metaphors and references with classic Country topics such as love, heartbreak, and soul searching. Holding Out for the One, Where You Are, Come as You AreWhite Horse and The Way You Look Tonight are romantic songs. The tunes Jersey on the Wall, Lighthouse, When I Meet My Maker, Find You, and The Most Beautiful Things are about a form of soul-searching through life.  Somebody’s Daughter is a unique song because it tells a story for the artist about honouring young women and showing them respect. The diversity in the subject matter is impressive.

My favourite songs are Holding Out for the One, The Way You Look Tonight (featuring Keelan Donovan), The Most Beautiful Things, and Somebody’s Daughter.
