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. Jalen has played gigs across Liverpool and beyond, including the Fiesta Bombada and Liverpool SoulFest and supporting touring acts such as Laura Mvula and KING. With his tender soulful voice and bluesy arrangements, Jalen will leave you no choice but to be drawn into his world.
