Henosis Music is an American Pop - Reggae - Hip-Hop band, founded in Nashville, Tennessee by drummer/singer-songwriter and rapper, Brandon Jenkins, in 2018. Henosis is a Greek word, which is translated to the word 'Unity' in English. Henosis Music's mission is to spread love and hope, while unifying every listener through the power of music by exploring every variety of genres, in hopes of bringing a more inclusive vibe to music lovers of all kinds.
Henosis Music takes a unique approach to the art of music performance with the drum set out front-center stage, featuring it's lead singing, songwriting and fast rapping drummer, Brandon Jenkins. Brandon began drumming when he was 4 years old, started singing at age 5 - around the age he lost his mother to colon cancer. At 8 years old, he developed a crippling case of stuttering, due to anxiety and depression from both losing his mother and the tense relationship between his original stepmother, shortly after. Brandon began writing songs at age 13 and used his writing to work through his stuttering. He was successful at doing so, which has led him to where he is as an artist today. His father Michael bought Brandon his first drumkit when Brandon was 14 years old. Michael has been supporting his son in every way from the beginning.
All Henosis Music songs originally come from Brandon, usually beginning as a melody idea, and then connecting it all with heartfelt and universal lyrics. In the summer of 2021, Brandon was virtually introduced to his current producer/session guitarist & bassist, Kurt D. Jansohn, out of Virginia Beach, VA - Founder of Third Island Productions, as well as popular Virginia Beach reggae band, One Culture. They were introduced by Marco Martinez, a singing-songwriting Nashville guitarist, and co-founder of popular reggae band Roots of a Rebellion, as well as his solo project, Mellodose.
Kurt was immediately interested in working on Brandon's songs, being that Brandon only plays percussion and sings. Brandon understands how to create melodies, but not how music theory is assessed in the process. Kurt brings his experience, talent and passion for reggae and music in general to the songs of Henosis Music. Remarkably, Brandon and Kurt have yet to meet in person, but have together completed 3 full songs so far, all of which have been released on all streaming platforms - working together virtually from over 700 miles away. Henosis Music's debut single "All My Attention" - a dancehall/reggae mixture - was released September 1st, 2021, along with a music video, available on the Henosis Music Channel on YouTube. "All My Attention" was featured on the Reggae Vibes magazine website, as well as their Spotify playlist, and was also played on Radio Boise 89.9 FM on it's first day of release. Henosis Music followed up with their next single, "So High Up" - a reggae/pop/dub mixture - released on the 1st of October, 2021. "So High Up" was featured on the Cali Vibes Spotify playlist in it's first day of release, as well and continues to grow and views and spins. Henosis Music soon followed up with their latest released hip-hop style single, "Headphones", which Brandon wrote at the age of 15. Headphones is also one of the songs that helped Brandon through his stuttering, and continues to. It was also played on KYZX Mendocino, CA Radio 88.1 FM in it's first week of release.
The future of Henosis Music is looking bright with plans on releasing another single in the works, sometime in early 2022. "Love is the message and my music is the delivery," Brandon says.
