Who is Jenny Johal?
Jenny was born and raised in Jalandar in the northwestern India state of Punjab. Having grown up in such a cultural hub she was inevitably surrounded by Bhangra music and dance from a very young age. She started to fall in love with singing at the very tender age of 3, with her love for the art form only getting stronger.
Knowing that her passion was to become a performer she began to train with Ustad Bhupinder Singh, this gave her he confidence and ability to showcase her talents at collage festivals, local events and private events. Having put in the work for many years Jenny is now working with Punjab’s finest lyricist and music director – Bunty Bains, channeling her passion for singing and playing instruments into various exciting projects.
Standing on the shoulders of giants
Bunty Bains is said to be accountable for her strong TV presence, boasting the industry knowledge and contacts to help Jenny reach her potential. Having penned songs such as Mitran De Boot with Jazzy B and Mr. Pendu with Roshan Prince, we are confident that Jenny is in safe hands.
Not only does Jenny have the professional support to reach her limits but her family also has a bearing on where she is today with her grandfather, Shri Joga Singh, being an extremely famous Kavishr. He is still respected and known in Punjab having released many audiocassettes and books, suggesting Jenny’s unique sound to be hereditary.
