Hailing from Toronto, Canada, singer-songwriter JNYR attempts to bridge the gap between upbeat modern RnB and 90s melodic nostalgia. Fresh into the scene, the year of 2018 saw JNYR evolve quickly; culminating in the release of his debut EP “Transition.” The project is an eclectic and sonically cohesive work that has garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify and drawn attention worldwide. “Transition” peaked at #32 in the iTunes RnB charts in Canada and the US.
Apart from his records, JNYR also prides himself in his “pen game” and derives his style from his upbringing in the Scarborough section of Toronto, where he was exposed to hip hop, reggae-dancehall, jazz, alternative rock and a myriad of thriving cultures. The exposure to these genres early on is manifested through his music today
