Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I’m an only child from Jamaican parentage who from an early age was influenced heavily by reggae that always played in the home. I bought a guitar in college and taught myself the major chords and started writing songs from there. I currently have 2 albums under my name and I’m ready to release my first self produced project in June 2020.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I would consider my music a fusion of roots reggae and soul and acoustic folk all merged into one genre. My writing style is very reflective, positive, and uplifting, and always pursuing the listener keep striving in whatever area or circumstances they find themselves in. Self-reliance is also an important theme I infuse my lyrics with.
For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I see myself as an intense performer, energetic performance, very much concerned with the sound and phonics of a show. With each performance, I feel closer to the music (if that makes sense). The best aspect of being a singer/songwriter is to perform and have people sing the words you’ve written.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
That song would be “The Other Side” it’s one of the first songs I’ve written and its acoustic style and lyrical message is a staple of Humble’s musical style.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I’ve always admired Alanis Morrisette, The Tragically Hip, the Weeknd, and hip hop artists such as Drake and Tory Lanes.
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.
