"...give JENAYLA a listen for yourself and spread the word to any and everyone you know. This one's a keeper"
- RMcrae AMAZON REVIEW
"With its smooth groove, a keenly savvy vocal and subdued electronica elements, Jenayla’s “Low Down” is ripe for sunsets and a glass of champagne"
- Chuck Taylor Former BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Editor
JENAYLA (‘je-nay-luh’) was born and raised in Australia, in the beautiful surroundings of South East Queensland. Born into a musical family, this allowed JENAYLA an early understanding of melody and lyric. She further refined her skills in the studio and in live performance, touring professionally in Australia.
During this time JENAYLA began her collaboration with award winning Composer/Producer Roberto Merlini, who having had releases on Café Del Mar, encouraged JENAYLA to further explore her passion for Chill & Lounge Music. This developed partnership led JENAYLA and Roberto to produce the EP VISION, debut album INSIGHT and the latest acclaimed album NOW.
Inspired by her earlier pop roots, she engaged with sounds from artists such as Lisa Stansfield, Sade, Margaret Urlich, Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson; giving her newest album a sound that alternates between chill and mid-tempo lounge. It holds your attention, yet is smooth enough to cool you down.
Her songs are currently being played and promoted by radio stations throughout Europe - Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Australia, Africa, Canada, South America and the US.
JENAYLA is licensing her music to clients of brands and industries in luxury retail, hotel resorts, special events; and is available for compilation projects, collaborations, and television/film licensing. She also performs her catalogue of songs in live performances.
"Together with Roberto Merlini this is international quality. Im so proud of this woman and what she is achieving. The music? Well what can I say just superb. Her voice is unique, sultry and dynamic. Sooo impressed."
