Jalen N’Gonda: Momentum
Born in Maryland, USA, Jalen N’Gonda chose the city of Liverpool as the place in which he would flourish as a musician. It was at the age of 11 he began getting into music, inspired by his father’s collection of jazz, hip-hop, soul and classical records.
Since moving to Liverpool in 2014 Jalen has played gigs across the UK and beyond, selling out his first headline show in London and supporting touring acts such as Laura Mvula, Martha Reeves and Lauryn Hill at the Montreal Jazz Festival. After going viral with his first single ‘Holler (When You Call My Name)’ Jalen is set for big things in 2017. With his tender soulful voice and bluesy arrangements, Jalen will leave you no choice but to be drawn into his world.
