Sabrina Marie Allen AKA KenZl, though fiery on the outside being an Aries is sweet on the inside.


Location

Sabrina currently lives in Queens Park, London but originally hails from St Raphael's Estate, North West London - onetime home to Raheem Sterling, K-Koke, and the North Weezy grime movement.



Maybe this is why she is able to move between singing and rapping the way she does - so effortlessly. Preferring music that has a strong beat and an aggressive quality she is naturally drawn to Hip Hop / Rap / Trap, while having an appreciation and openness for most musical genres.



Having grown up listening to her parents play reggae music around the house and hearing her mother singing whilst cooking Sunday dinner, music and performing has always been a huge part of her life. Indeed - while in her teens and for the very briefest of moments - Sabrina found herself in a girl band, however that situation didn't work out... More recently Sabrina has performed in open mike sessions in clubs and bars in London. She also does the odd vocal session as a session singer.



Inspiration

Singers like Jill Scott and Maxwell have been a massive influence on how she writes and delivers her music. More recently artists such as Kanye West, Drake, The Migos and 21 Savage, have brought out a more edgy side to her musical expressions.


Around 2 years ago a friend, ‘Super Flex’ - the guy responsible for giving “Stefflon Don” that name and a respected UK bashment artist in his own right - introduced Sabrina to a production company called InBlaq Productions based in Wembley, London. They embarked on an artist development / production scenario where together Kenzl and Joseph Wright producer / engineer / label owner, wrote, performed and recorded loads of material - all the time tweaking and honing skills, style and direction. In this time Sabrina grew as an all round artist.


Experimentation

Adding rap to her repertoire was an unexpected yet welcoming addition to her growing list of talent. In this period of experimentation and discovery a new artist has emerged and KenZl’s first commercial project is now ready.
