“For me, music has always been about communication. Those three-minute stories make us feel connected and heard,” shares singer-songwriter Adjenai.
Adjenai grew up in Edison, New Jersey, but when she was a teen, her parents experienced a transformation that flung the family into a nomadic existence. At that time, songwriting and playing music became a grounding force. At 17, she came to LA to study songwriting. While in SoCal, she dove into the local scene, playing shows, and collaborating with a community of musicians and songwriters.
Adjenai’s aesthetic is a buttery blend of neo-soul, alt-pop, alt-R&B, and sensual Latin vibes. Her songwriting has a jazzy flair, and her recordings are lavished with rich harmony vocals, ethereal keyboard textures, silken jazz-guitar stylings, and deep-pocket grooves. Her vocals exude a balmy emotiveness, like a sadness and a longing tempered by an elegant restraint.
In addition to her music, Adjenai is a fierce advocate for mental health and founder of the zine, MENTAL., a platform for LGBTQIA+ and BIPoC creators to share their perspectives on mental health and wellness within marginalized communities.
