Heart Society is the Mississippi-based wife-and-husband duo of Teneia Sanders-Eichelberger and Benjamin Eichelberger. Founded in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2014, the band initially performed limited engagements while Benjamin pursued a full-time career as a pilot and flight instructor. Increasingly discouraged by a lack of fulfillment in their lives, the two realized they wanted to share their music and message of positivity with a much larger audience. In 2015, the couple completed a successful crowdfunding campaign to buy a thirty-two-foot travel trailer (a.k.a. The Tiny Musical House), then took a huge leap of faith: Benjamin quit his job, the two sold most of their possessions, and together they set out in pursuit of their musical dreams.

Heart Society is more than a band; it’s a movement. They celebrate the ties that bind humanity together, while prizing the beauty of individuality. Their groove-heavy blend of folk, soul, and rock ’n’ roll will make you want to get out of your seat and dance, and their inspiring journey and message of equality will stir your heart. The band’s debut EP, Wake the Queens, speaks clearly about 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.

Listening to singer Teneia Sanders-Eichelberger’s voice, it’s easy to see why she’s won awards such as Best Female Vocalist from the Phoenix New Times. ‘Rocket’ has a dynamic sound, with subtle funk-inspired verses and high-energy choruses powered by storming guitar riffs and soaring vocals.
