Jenna Camille (born Jenna Henderson: November 21, 1990 in Atlanta, GA) Is a producer/ songwriter/vocalist who carefully blends electronic, jazz, blues, rock, R&B, and hip hop elements, and translates them into sultry and hypnotic songs about love, sex, depression, and social and political issues. The grandchild of a funk musician, Jenna took interest in music very early. In 1996, at the age of 6, she began training as a classical pianist, and soon began writing and composing her own music. In 2008, she graduated from the renowned Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC, and began studying in the Jazz Studies department of Michigan State University as a piano major. Inspired by the works of Janet Jackson, Prince, Aaliyah and many others, Jenna Camille’s music steams with enigmatic eroticism, and cools with emotional vulnerability. In 2015, she performed at Lansing’s Common Ground festival, which featured acts such as Snoop Dogg, DJ Quick and Wale, with East Lansing collective, The Blat! Pack. She has also performed in Jamestown, Ghana for the Chalo Wale festival and has been featured in several blogs. She continues to perform in the DC area. Her debut album, RED, was released in June, 2014.
