Zenny Biography

Zenesha ‘Zenny’ Riley has pulled off a feat few persons have the ability
and persistence to do – succeed at the highest level in three demanding
professions. A successful model who has graced catwalks in Jamaica,
France, the United States, Spain and Germany and was the Production
Manager for Nice Time Productions Ltd. ~She is now earning rave reviews
as a singer based on the phenomenal success of the
runaway hit ‘No Combo‘, a remake of the popular UB40 and Lorna Bennett
vintage hit, ‘Breakfast in Bed’. “I am really pleased with the response
of the public to the song. It seems to have connected with people,” she
says.

Born on December 16, 1984, Zenny grew up in St. Ann,
Jamaica, State of Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey, Burning Spear, and Shabba
Ranks. Always a lover of music, dance, sports, fashion, films and
entertainment, she was raised in a rural environment Farm Town” where
patriotism, and an appreciation of authentic roots and culture were
encouraged. The household supported the sharing of ideas and the
interplay of different philosophies and ways of thinking. Zenny later
travelled and lived overseas to learn different cultures and languages,
spending time in Germany ,Spain and the USA, She credits her upbringing
as well as daily reality as her inspiration for new material for her
singles. “I basically write about people’s lives, mine, reality – what
is clear and deep to our own understanding. Music is someone’s story or
an imaginary creation of what could be,” Zenny says. She has worked as a
Productions Manager for Jamaican/Spanish film, music and sports company
Nice Time Productions Limited, creators of Hit Me with Music which
Zenny produced and directed as well as the award-winning documentaries
Why Do Jamaicans Run So Fast and and Songs of Redemption,which she
produced the sound track. Zenny is also constantly busy working with
her Own Record label ” Zenny Muzik Records & top music Producer-Lee
Milla Productions. She is Now working on her music Album ” One way
street’ with Top Publishing and recording companies in the Usa and Europe.

Her singing style varies according to the tone and mood
of the material she is delivering. This marvellous variety ranges from
the gruff ‘rude gal’ deejay style to whipped cream-smooth vocals when
singing soul and culture tunes. An admitted multi-tasker, Zenny is
equally comfortable in stilettos on the runway at an haute couture show
in Paris or Milan, walking in the streets filming personalities for
documentaries, as well as wearing jeans and Converse in a small studio
in Kingston. “I am down to earth, humorous yet sophisticated. That’s a
simple description. I enjoyed being an international model as much as I
enjoy being in the studio recording, doing some production work or
playing table tennis or netball,” she says with a smile. Zenny’s
eclectic musical influences come from her childhood, listening to the
greats of the early 60s, 70s and 80s, a time span that hails the heyday
of funk, soul, reggae, R & B and disco. Zenny also admires the work
of modern stars such as Toni Braxton, Erykah Badu, Mary J Blige,
Indie.Arie and Alicia Keys, along with giants such as James Brown,
Michael Jackson, Patti Labelle, Bob Marley, Marcia Griffiths,Tanya
Stephens and Lady Saw to name a few. As she settles down in her music
career, we can expect nothing less than greatness from this
multi-talented star in the making.
