Cruz, has been singing since she was 3 years old and started writing songs at the age of 15. She turns her poetry into lyrics and plays multiple instruments during the creative writing process.

Her ballad "Picture Of You" was Produced by Legendary John Siket.

"I need your affection, your constant connection, kiss me smooth or until I'm drained" lyrics from their single "Do It To Myself" screams hopeless romantic and that I am. I am also extremely passionate about writing lyrics that are universal and music that touches the soul", says Jenevieve.
