Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenna Rosee.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Jenna. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’ve been influenced by music all my life. It runs in the family! My dad wanted to be a singer but coming from a Nigerian background his parents didn’t let him. As a kid, I always loved to entertain people with my voice. I wrote my first song when I was in the third grade and kept writing ever since. Over the years, I recorded songs and kept writing to work on my craft and find my sound.
Has it been a smooth road?
It’s not always gonna be a smooth road. Your gonna go through things during the journey but that’s what makes it fun! During the time of finding my sound, my confidence wasn’t there but I kept pushing. There’s a lot of situations that happened during my journey but looking back, it molded me to the artist that I am now and got me to places I didn’t think I’d ever reach. Sometimes, you’re placed or removed in situations that will help you in the long run. It may feel confusing at the time but you gotta trust the process and that’s what I did.
We’d love to hear more about your music.
I am an RnB artist. I see myself as the modern version of Adina Howard. Her music makes me feel confident as a woman and makes me feel comfortable to express my sexuality. It’s a beautiful thing to love yourself inside and out and I wanna be able to share that with people especially women. I want women to feel good about themselves and confident when they listen to my music.
We’re interested to hear your thoughts on female leadership – in particular, what do you feel are the biggest barriers or obstacles?
Being in a male-dominated industry, women have to work ten times harder for their spot. It’s crazy but you gotta put the work in to get your voice heard these days. Gratefully nowadays females are really taking over and knocking doors down and opening doors for other women, it’s an amazing feeling!
