Jenny Mayhem is a Toronto based singer-songwriter. Born and raised on the West Coast of Barbados, she travelled to Canada at the age of seventeen. After fronting the progressive rock act ADA for several years, Jenny changed pace with ‘Keep the Fire’, a 6-track EP released in 2009. She introduced her acoustic-folk side with an intimate performance at The Central, a tucked away venue in Toronto’s Annex district.
Songs from "Keep the Fire" are featured in a number of non-profit and artistic video campaigns. "When You're Older" can be heard in Greg Sucharew’s "Bicycle City" documentary, which follows the effects of donating thousands of bicycles to a small town in Nicaragua. This song also closes Denis Smith's "Ball of Light" film, covering the life story of a well-known Adelaide Photographer, and appeared in Wonderbound's "Love in a Digital Age" nouveau ballet performance of 2012. "King of the Street", accompanies a short video of artist Jimmy McGilchrist's participation in Adelaide's 5000+ project, while “All the World” was used in a 2010 British organ donor campaign by the same name.
In October 2011, Jenny released her self-title EP, recorded and mixed by Steve Chahley at DNA Recording Facility. Directed by Ace Billet, the music video for "Wide Open" gained positive attention in Toronto's Exclaim! and The Grid magazines. A video created for "Alice in Wonderland" at the Utrecht School of Arts was also picked up by Exclaim! and press in the Netherlands.
Jenny's latest single "Shifter" was also recorded and mixed at DNA, co-written and produced with Pouya Birgani and released in December 2012. Popular online radio site Earbits wrote "if subsequent songs are anywhere near the same quality, Jenny Mayhem will be a tremendous female artist, going just enough against the current musical grain to garner that extra attention it takes to appear on people's radar."

Lyrics:

let's make the news today into a paper plane and throw it up so high it hits the sun and catches fire and when it all comes down and covers every town the traffic will turn back a holiday will come out of ash please forget the rainclouds up above your head let them come and go way behind the rainclouds there's a great big world we'll never know we'll go up to the roof and get a stray balloon sail away from home away from all this fire and smoke and when we hit the sea we'll slip easily bright as solid gold we'll watch it float on and on please forget the rainclouds up above your head let them come and go way behind the rainclouds there's a great big world we'll never know

Lyrics:

there's a whole world talking to me closer than my lover's been on a 25 inch screen it's been a one way conversation they've been there through thick and thin all their faces flickering it's a puzzle cut from light by a wild imagination and it's easy to pretend that they're all my friends, not in my head and i've learned true love will hold by the time the credits roll yes i've learned you'll win the war when the camera is yours a stone could crack this dream it could shatter everything but i'd rather gaze all night at a world of people who shine 'cause it's easy to pretend that they're all my friends, not in my head
