Tenille Werner - Saxophone, Lead/Background vocals
Tenille Werner (daughter of Bassist Jamie Werner of Kevin Jaxon & Midnight Sun) has been involved in music from a very young age. Hailing from the beautiful Blue Mountains of Northeast Oregon, Tenille now calls Lake Havasu City, Az., home. Tenille has been singing all of her life and is a self taught pianist and guitarist. So it was no surprise to those around her when she decided to pick up the saxophone. Soon after, Tenille was invited to be a part of her school band. Tenille has since performed at several live musical events around the Northwest, including a regular yearly appearance at "Harveystock". When the offer was made for Tenile to join and become a member of Kevin Jaxon & Midnight Sun, Tenille jumped at the opportunity and quickly became an integral part of a complex rhythm section that many professionals struggle with. Taking it all in stride, Tenille also brings her uniquely lush and sultry style of vocals, attracting those of all ages and tastes, to partake of her wonderful musical gifts!
