From Jenna Kyle
Jenna Kyle is an American singer-songwriter and musician based out of New York City.
Kyle released her debut single, “Dust” in January 2017 which generated quite the buzz for the new artist. Interview Magazine premiered the track, calling it “ethereal… captivating”. The song was quickly picked up by Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” and “Indie Pop Chillout” playlists, and reached #25 on the US and Canadian “50 Top Viral” playlists.
Kyle’s second single, Lovelorn, produced by collaborator DJ / Producer BAILE was released in February, and was featured on The Line Of Best Fit, DASH Radio, and Indietronica. Kyle has also been a featured vocalist on BAILE’s music.
Jenna Kyle’s latest release, “Summer With You” is a fun downtempo collaboration with producer / DJ Wes James (Le Youth). Written in James’ Venice Beach studio, “Summer With You” emerged as a homage to Kyle’s native California and a resolve to live in the present and to being true to oneself. The song comes accompanied by an Official Music Video, which was filmed in a weekend between picturesque Lake George in upstate New York, and Manhattan.
In addition to writing and producing her music, Kyle continues to collaborate with heavy hitters in the electronic world as a featured vocalist and songwriter.
Jenna Kyle exemplifies a new strand of ethereal R&B blended with Indie -Electronica to create thoughtful, emotive art pop.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, California Jenna Kyle was raised by music-loving parents with the radio - or a record - constantly on. Everything from James Taylor, Earth Wind and Fire, Pink Floyd, and Nina Simone. These childhood influences, along with a love of 90's R&B, electronic soundscapes, minimal house music, meditation and durational performance art all lend to her inspiration and her sound that transcends traditional pop.
After moving to New York, Jenna was a featured musician and performer in Temporary Distortion’s acclaimed performance art installation, “My Voice Has An Echo In It,” a haunting 6-hour, mixed media saga, within which Kyle moves unexpectedly between vocals, keyboard and drums. "Echo" has been featured in the NY Times, American Theatre Magazine, at the PS122 festival in 2015 and held residency at Robert Wilson's Water Mill Center in 2016.
Jenna Kyle’s original song, “Keep Moving On,” was selected by the National Association of Mental Illness (NAMI) for their 2014 National Fall campaign #iwillisten.
