INFLUENCES
Ternielle has spent the last few years growing as an independent artist, learning from the many creatives that have influenced her unique style. The earliest being Vicky Simpson’s African dream, followed by African songstress Simphiwe Dana - Ndiredi during her years at music school. A lot of her inspiration was intrigued and brought on by Malian Singer Songwriter Salif Keita, the singer also takes a liking to Jill Scott and Singer Sade Adu.
INSPIRATION
