Kenna is a rock and roll singer-songwriter. Originally from Ethiopia, he was raised in Cincinnati and Virginia. Kenna talks about how U2’s album The Joshua Tree changed his life, and led to his dramatic, dancable New Wave-ish rock.
His most recent album, “Make Sure They See My Face,” was produced, like his first, by his long-time friend Chad Hugo, half of the super-producer duo The Neptunes. Kenna was also featured in Malcolm Gladwell’s best-selling book Blink.
