Vallé

Bio

Vallé is the brainchild of Enjalas Jenkinson - a new ‘boujee to the bone’ project which is gearing up to blaze a trail across the Kiwi music landscape and beyond.

Vallé makes his first move, with the poetic debut single Love Me. It’s a personal song, which draws on Jenkinson’s own experiences, as well as his observations, of the age-old battle with self love and identity. “This song is about unpacking the pain as opposed to telling the world how to ‘fix themselves’,” he explains. “I believe the fixing sometimes happens unintentionally, as we open up and become vulnerable. This is what I aimed to do by creating this song.”

With an effortlessly cool and understated groove, blended with rap and R’n’B influences, warm melodies and a strong narrative running throughout, Love Me is a bold entrance for Vallé and showcases what’s still to come from the talented Christchurch-based artist.

Jenkinson began writing poetry and songs when he was around 10 years old. He wrote and recorded his first rap song when he was only 13. He went on to release a string of singles and records under the moniker ENJALAS, fast establishing a reputation on the local scene as a force to be reckoned with and opening for acts such as JessB, UnchainedXL and Smashproof.

Now, Jenkinson is amped to reveal his new project Vallé to the world.

The stage name Vallé comes from the combination of two of the most influential figures in his life - Irish singer and songwriter Van Morrison and former US basketball star Allen Iverson. “Van Morrison was my dad’s favourite artist. He used to play his music to me when I was little and I’d dance to it. When I came to New Zealand from Papua New Guinea, he was the first thing that made me happy and brought me out of my shell,” he says. “Allen Iverson was the person who caused me to fall deeply in love with basketball; the sport that has shaped much of my life and friendships to this day. He has a strong character and the way he went against the grain changed the game and culture. And that’s something I see in myself.
“That’s why these two figures make up Vallé.”

Vallé is here and about to make his mark!
