Jenniva is an R&B singer and songwriter from NYC whose music is greatly influenced by the late 90’s and early 00’s R&B. She spends a lot of time in her creative zone, writing, creating melodies and harmonies while carefully hand selecting the most rhythmic and captivating beats for her music.
Born and raised in the Bronx, she grew up during an era where NYC dominated the Hip-Hop and R&B charts. The music style and street fashion of New York City played a huge role in drawing inspiration for her style and sound today. She recalls spending a lot of time in her room as a kid, listening to the radio on her stereo system and watching music videos on MTV and BET, which was the start of a deep passion for R&B music.
She artistically pulls inspiration from this era, a time when she was able to connect with music on a personal level. Some say her smooth tone of voice and soft melodic harmonies, is reminiscent of the late and great Aaliyah. Jenniva has a unique sound that definitely puts her in a lane of her own today.
Jenniva has performed throughout various venues around NYC with notable networks such as Major Stage, Bridging the Music, Create Art Festival and much more. Currently, she’s gearing up to release new singles off her EP “Rule No. 1” as well as performing at various shows and festivals this year.
