Jayna ‘Uncompromised’ Is On The Way!
Jayna Blackwell has been singing since she was four years old. Singing first in church you could often find her in the youth and young adult and state choirs, of her home church and its jurisdiction.
While still holding on to her gospel roots, Jayna began singing R&B professionally in the early 90s and she hasn’t stopped yet. Her eclectic musical taste and style has enabled her to develop a voice that includes genres such as R&B, Funk, Jazz and even Rock & Roll. She credits her first band; Thrilltrain for opening her up to singing Rock & Roll and Mr. Barron Edwards for strategically placing her in his Motown Revue Tribute Show and his well-received R&B show band and for forcing her to sing professionally again after quitting the business at an earlier stage in her career.
Jayna quickly became known as an established background vocalist supporting several local bands and solo artists for many years. This woman has a story which she tells in the sound of her voice. She often says her experiences have shaped the voice you hear today and credits her family and peers for pushing and loving her back to center stage in 2012; Nichole Blackwell, John D. Smith, Grady Wilkins, Nicole Buttah Pearson, Niecey the voice Robinson, and countless others. The year 2014 marked a career turn for Jayna as she was again nominated and awarded the Best Neo-soul Performer by the Bay Area Black Music Awards and was signed and also made the First Lady/President of her record label Curency Kingz Entertainment by her labels CEO and manager, Kenneth Christian.
She is in the process of recording her freshman album Uncompromised. Check out here website for more info!
