Tehillah Henry Aims to Leave A Lasting Impression



For 23 year old Brit singer Tehillah Henry, its all about leaving a lasting legacy behind in everything that she does - from her music to her charity work.
"There is much more to achieve. There will always be something to achieve but I've realized this will always be the case. I'm satisfied but not satisfied if that makes sense. I'm 23 with much more to go in life. I just want to keep helping people through song and somehow create a legacy that encourages people to encourage others.
"Aside from that I am in involved in a mental health programme where we run a songwriting/ music workshop that helps people recover from trauma, depression so they can express themselves through song. It has been an eye opener. So many people have had a tough time yet the music was able to bring everyone together. It was so lovely seeing people who at first were afraid to open up but by the end of the course they were so open and ready to engage. My heart was warmed. If I can use music to help in anyway like this I will", said Tehillah.

Having taken up songwriting at the age of 16, Henrys love for music grew immensely by the day and naturally she felt the need to develop her production skills  this resulted in her studying Songwriting and Music Production at the University Of Hertfordshire in 2013.
"I now have a degree after graduating in September 2016. From then up to now I have moved back to Wolverhampton (West Midlands) and have been gigging in and around Birmingham. I have met some amazing musicians and my love for the Midlands has grown as a result. During this time I have been sending tracks in to BBC Introducing to which they responded very well and have been playing my tracks on BBC WM's Introducing show throughout 2016-2018.
"I became one of the members of Shanty Town Collective (@followshantytown). A group of singers and musicians that put on music, art and spoken word events. We took Shanty Town to Berlin as well as France last year, doing the same this year. It's been great because we were able to get some great recordings done of the Shanty band when we were in Berlin this July. Also, I have documented a lot of this on my camera which will be released as a documentary soon", said the artist.

Getting her song 'Honesty' (Remix) onto Radio 1 airplay back in 2016 was one of the special moments for Tehillah because it showed her the positive power that music with substance had on the listener.
"I created and recorded this song in my bedroom and it proved to me it's the content that matters most. I love creating and people/listeners are looking for creativity in what they hear as well. Hopefully that will continue to come through in the future as well. Performing at Sofar Sounds Birmingham was really great last month as well. The vibes were amazing", said the musician.
"I love motivating people. When I was at university I started a motivational channel called borntoconquertv. This was to inspire and encourage people to win at life. This year and next year I want to expand it even more", she said.

The singer also revealed to Urban Craft magazine that she had just completed writing enough songs to put together a brand new EP that she hopes to release before year end.
"I have just finished writing enough songs to create and record a new EP. So hopefully before the year is up we can get that published. It will probably be called 'Show Me' named after a song I have been performing live a lot this year. People seem to like it a lot so hopefully it will be well received in album form", said Tehillah
