ROCK: Modern Rock, POP: Today''s Top 40
Ena is one of the hottest undiscovered Pop/Rock Alternative artist around today. She has moved beyond all boundaries placed before her as a young woman. Within a culture of Reggae, she discovered and nurtured her love for Pop and Rock.
Ena likes almost every artist, as long as the music rocks. Artists like Jane Siberry, PJ Harvey, The Emotions, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Zap Mama, Skunk Anansie, Tricky, Delirium, Deep Forest, Missy Elliot, and the list goes on and on. Her taste encompasses all genres. Her main influence, however, is her father ("Papa") whom she first met at age 7. She was in absolute awe when she first saw him playing the acoustic guitar. She immediately fell in love with the instrument and has not put it down since. Ena taught herself to play (in the dark) and throughout the years has honed her craft. She is no stranger to the electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboards or drums and is one of the most versatile musicians today.
Ena is a perfectionist when it comes to her craft and works diligently to get the sound she desires, even if it means all-nighters without food or sleep. In other words, she eats, sleeps, and dreams music. She is a crafty and talented songwriter, musician and producer. She began writing at age fourteen and has written over 100 songs (including Gospel and R&B), however, her forte is Pop/Rock.
"I observed a lot, and you can hear and
feel that in my music. My lyrical content
is down to earth and focuses on daily
living. I represent women worldwide in my
songs. When I write I take on different
personalities. I think all of this makes
my music universal."
She loves performing live and has toured internationally in Korea, Cayman Islands, Trinidad, and Guyana.
