Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I’m primarily a songwriter/producer although I do occasionally sing on selected songs. My move to Montreal in 2006 was the beginning of my journey as a songwriter and I’ve been working on my craft ever since. I co-founded a media house called Film & Blues Production which I run alongside the music, and I am a life coach as well, working with a various number of ambitious minds. .
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I’ve always been a fan of music that tells a story and accompanied by a fitting melody. I work towards creating just that with my own writing. Always aiming at telling a story and having the right melody carry the lyrics.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
As I am primarily a songwriter/producer, my work involves having different artists sing the music I write. I am working towards a live show which will take place at Casa Del Popolo early next year but the date has not been set. The show will feature Vikki Gilmore, Eric Mercury, and Clerel who’s featured in my upcoming release on November 28th.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I would say ‘Once in a While’, I think it gives a taste of how I approach music, but again every song is different being that different artists are featured every time.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
If I had to pick three, I would say Patrick Watson, Frazey Ford, and Donovan Woods.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
