United Kingdom

Born and raised in London, JAEL is a Singer, Songwriter, and Wordsmith, who is often likened to Asa, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse. Not constrained to one genre – her main areas of focus are Neo-Soul, RnB, Jazz and Gospel (what she calls ‘Conscious Music’).

Her love of music and passion for singing began at the age of 5 and since then, she has endeavored to develop into a well-versed and rounded musician. Poetically fusing sounds and words from both her life in London and her deep-rooted African heritage, JAEL has been performing at shows, vocal sheds and events frequently.

She has gained recognition nationally and internationally with her single, ‘Fire Dey’, which many say is ‘reminiscent of Fela Kuti and his timeless Afrobeat vibes’. JAEL is writing songs for herself as well as other artists and is heavily involved in the production and arrangement of all of her music.

Jael graduated with a First Class degree from the London College of Music; she continues to write, sing and collaborate with other musicians. Combining evocative lyrics with atmospheric vibes, she is set to become a household name.
