She’s a singer, writer and ASSASSIN, murdering songs with her pen and a mic in her hand.
Killing the game with her unique sense of style and sound, she is Jenilee. A multi-faceted artist giving new meaning to “multi-threat”, she does it all. Packing a soulful voice, infectious melodies and stand out top lines, her compelling stage and on camera presence are an added bonus to her exotic look. While she is able to perform and write any genre, her own music embodies a “Hood rock” sensibility, a fusion of Pop-Urban-Rock.
The Philippines born Jenilee wrote her first song at age 10 and knew that she was destined to do music. Upon moving to LA, she studied at The Gloria Gifford Conservatory of Performing Arts and has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Brian Mcknight and Raphael Saadiq, opening up for Snoop Dogg and Jordan Knight of NKOTB in sold out arenas. She has inked record deals with Golden City/Bad Boy Records, Streamline/Interscope Records and Maxi Media/Universal Records. These labels led her work with hit makers including Mario Winans, Harvey Mason Jr, Rob Knox, James Fauntleroy, Space Cowboy, Dre & Vidal, Tim & Bob, The Smeezingtons and The Stereotypes to name a few. An accomplished writer she continues to write music for various artists as well as for film and television (MTV, E!, Vh1). In 2010, she was featured on a tour in Micronesia and also a USO Tour around Eastern Europe.
As an actress, she’s studied under famed acting coach, Arthur Mendoza at The Actors Circle Theater. Although she has guested on tv shows like “OC” & “Entourage”, including landing several national commercials & campaigns (Target, KIA Motor sports, Bio Silk, Def jam rapstar) she is best known as a “Deal or No Deal” model on NBC for its first season. She has starred in a few acclaimed indie films “Carts” & “Brown Soup thing.”
In May 2011, she put together an A CAPELLA group called Kinfolk 9 that made it on the third season of NBC’s “THE SING OFF” and quickly became a fan favorite, getting voted #1 best performance for the premier episode. Kinfolk 9’s rendition of the Beatles “Let it Be” has topped the Itunes charts coming in at #3 below the original version at #1 and the “Across the universe” soundtrack at #2.
The summer 2011 release of her mixtape “Sex, Love and Lock & Load” preceded with a video for “Assassin” has created an online buzz through RefinedHype.com and Mixtapedownload.com where more recently, her mixtape single “I wanna love you” (from her upcoming follow up mixtape) became the #1 downloaded song in the first week of its release. She is currently in the studio writing and recording her debut album with International hitmakers DEEKAY (JLS, Sugababes, Tinie Tempah) with an expected release early next year.
Armed with talent, beauty and charisma, you can expect to see a lot more of Jenilee. While she has accomplished a lot in her short career, this assassin has just barely scratched the surface.
