Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hey CanadianBeats! I’m an independent R&B artist, born and raised in Calgary AB as well as Kelowna BC. My music journey started with a community initiative called Fireside, where I hosted monthly living room concerts featuring local talent. From this place, I began to share my own sound. I just released my third single “Alright.”
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
My preferred writing method is to start with a strong lyrical melody in mind first, inspired by the beat of a producer I’m collaborating with. Once I know I’m feeling the song beyond words, then I know the lyrics will have an opportunity to cut through. My influences include H.E.R and Daniel Caesar (to name a few).
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I have an upcoming show on “MC Live,” a “Tiny Desk” style Instagram Live set on @marketcollective, Thursday, June 25th at 6:30 pm (MDT).
My live set, accompanied by pianist Timothonius Alai and the Haven Vanguard, hinges on hard-hitting beats underneath smooth vocal melodies. My ultimate aim is to open audiences to my story through the soul of my sound.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
My favourite Canadian artists are Daniel Caesar and Moël. Lately, I’ve been back on PARTYNEXTDOOR’s music, especially after seeing the energy he brings to his live show.
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.
