Singer -songwriter Adjenai was born and raised in Edison, New Jersey. She found her passion for music after her family decided to sell their belongings and travel. She shaped her “left -of -center” pop sound by her early taking influences from R&B artists like Alicia Keys and Stevie Wonder, as well as world music influences, and fusing them with her new love of electric guitars and grooving bass lines. Adjenai’s music combines her eclectic music tastes with an accessible pop sound.
