Nashville Dance/Pop/R&B artist Therine has released her new EP, Playful: Act I. She is releasing the songs for her fans on Reverbnation.com (where she is currently ranked #1 on the Dance Charts for the Nashville, TN area) for free until September to anyone who is already subscribed or is willing to subscribe to her email newsletter.
“I really want everyone to have a cause to rally around and have a community to relate to,” says Therine. “All artists wants to make great music, but for me, it’s not just about making great music. It’s about bringing a group of people together around something bigger. I want to empower and inspire, and that’s why I’m giving the music away for free.”
Therine’s troops, as she calls her fan base, are comprised of those who want to relish in their uniqueness. And there’s no better way to encourage people to be different, than to lead by example. With a “glitter mask” on her face, costuming that rivals Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, and “Ralphie,” her keytar, around her neck, Therine certainly sticks out in Nashville, a music scene comprised mostly of country, acoustic singer/songwriter, and Christian artists.
Therine is quickly becoming the go-to unique factor in any songwriter round, acoustic, or rock and roll show in Nashville. With upcoming shows at Exit/In, Drifters, and 12th and Porter Lounge, she shows her diversity not only for the people that she plays with but the audience for whom she plays.
With her feet firmly planted in the roots of Motown soul and her head in the glittery clouds of electronica dance pop, Therine leads her troops into the battle against mediocrity. She lets each and every one of her listeners know that it’s not only OK to be different but that it’s vital for the world that we live in today. With soul infused songs like “Imma Soldier” she brings a gritty realness to persevering through pain with a beat to kick some serious tail or just dance. She also teams up with Than, her partner in crime, for the sardonically irreverent “Pose” with both an infectious hook and words of hilarity. Formerly, Therine was known as Catherine Holder, she had success with a great college radio campaign and had her songs licensed for the MTV shows “Teen Wolf,” “World of Jenks,” and countless others. With her keytar “Ralphie” by her side, crazy dances in her feet, and a glitter mask around her eyes Therine always inspires power, dreams, and laughter in all who play. Her latest EP “Playful: Act I” was released August 7th, with the next EP “Playful: Act II” released soon after.
