About Kenya Jade:
Kenya inherited music from both sides of her family. Her mother is Filipina and “you simply can’t be from the Philippines and not sing” she laughs. Her father is Belizean and was a professional reggae musician. She reminisces on the classical sounds of Gregory Isaacs, Prince, and Janis Joplin which filled their home on Sunday mornings.
At a young age, Kenya started writing as a tool for understanding and healing. This naturally developed into putting words to melodies and she quickly understood how effective music could be in supporting her creative expression. She is a storyteller, poet, and philosopher. “I make music because it breathes life into my words,” she explains.
