Biography

Few artists have the ability to merge spirituality, musicality, cultural identity and a fire performance factor into the genre of spoken word. As a poet, singer, and former musician, Fhena does just that. Her writing has the ability to stir emotions, provoke thought, and bring spiritual enlightenment in her unique blend of spoken word, instrumentation and vocals.

Born in Rhode Island, Fhena began her path to writeousness with her first poem in the fourth grade. She became serious about her writing in high school, using it as an outlet to release frustrations. By the time she graduated, she had penned more than fifty poems. After starting a poetry-reading group in Little Rock, Arkansas, she found a place among other aspiring poets. They shared the work of acclaimed poets but most importantly of one another. She was encouraged to publish her writings, but knew that it was not time. At that point, she was only bearing witness to social, economic and cultural injustices in her works. She did not want her voice to be heard until she had solutions to offer. This desire set her on a path of discovery...encountering, confronting and conquering personal and collective challenges.

It was during this time that she adopted the name Fhena because it encapsulates who she is as an artist. Derived from phenomenon, Fhena is defined as the juice or awe-inspiring quality that sets a person or people apart from anyone else. Refined during times of adversity and development, Fhena is Divine potential realized.

After years of performing her work, Fhena decided it was finally to share the message she had been given with a larger audience. The result is her debut album, “beauty from ashez”, a collection of pieces that share the insight Fhena has been given as she has lived and observed life.

“Beautiful”, featuring vocals by Dance Diva Robin S who made famous hits such as “Show Me Love” and “Love 4 Love”, illuminates the people, experiences and sights that Fhena has known, lived and seen. This song helps remind the listener to seek to recognize the beauty of the Creator rather than the ugliness that occurs in life.

Fhena’s uniqueness as an artist allows her to perform in clubs, churches and all points in between. Those who have had an opportunity to witness a Fhena show know her for her rapid fire delivery, honesty and energetic performances. Fhena believes that being an artist is a special calling, a mandate of sorts. "My mission is to utilize spoken word to inspire thought, growth and discovery of the highest self. I want my words to penetrate the heart and mind bringing healing, clarity and understanding of what has been so we can be prepared for what is to come."
