Canadian-born and Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Tenille Townes has released her latest seven-track EP, Masquerades, which includes collaborations with Wrabel and BRELAND. 

The EP signals the beginning of a new chapter for Townes after she spent the last two years growing, reflecting, and evolving as an artist.

Masquerades is me setting aside the smiling face I hide behind sometimes and letting the world see more of who I am. In this process, I realised that I am two different people, and I struggle between those two often,” Townes shared in a press release. “I am the introverted songwriter and the fiery performer, and both are true to who I am. I look forward to showing more of these sides in my music and live performances. Music has always been a bridge for me between both of these sides, and I hope this music can help others who can relate.”

Here she is. Masquerades. This EP marks the beginning of a new chapter of music with you guys.... I really do think that...
