Back in 2008 the blue print for Journii Walker Music was created and set in motion.

Tuena Marie, the artist formerly known as Tena Jones, has a sultry sassy voice with the swagg of a Rock Star! Her ability to blend old school flavor with the new will have you wanting to hear more. Formerly signed to Interscope Records as lead vocalist of the band "4th Avenue Jones". Maytena’s musical resume includes; singing on Tupac's "Letter To My Unborn Child", opening for major Artists such as Black Eyed Peas, Musiq Soulchild, The Roots, Sheryl Crow, James Brown, George Clinton, Bilal, Nikka Costa, Ozomatli, Stevie Wonder, J5, and more. This gifted vocalist and songwriter has also sung background for J.Cole, Nicki Minaj, Leela James and more. To satisfy the crave of soul that is flowing in her, she refuses to be trapped in a box called genre and simply does what she feels. Tuena says it’s simple “My purpose in life is to bring healing through music, and to hug people with my songs.
Journii Walker's angelic voice, unforgettable melodies and songs have earned her praise and support from several Grammy Award Winning and nominated artists, producers, engineers, songwriters and music lovers worldwide. Her indelible gifts and talents have afforded her various opportunities; so far in her career Journii has worked with and shared the stage with some of music’s most dynamic singers, songwriters, musicians and producers including, Grammy Award winning record producer, songwriter and audio engineer Darryl Swann(Macy Gray, Babyface), The Emotions, Cam Wallace (Beyonce//Sevyn Streeter), Monte Neuble (Frank Ocean), Ben Spivak (basses/member of the Canadian band Magic!), Eric Seats ( Lalah Hathaway, Aaliyah), Rhona Bennet (En Vogue), Maxee Maxwell (Brownstone), Alex Isley, Carla Carter (Jim Jam & Terry Lewis, Usher, Janet Jackson) and many more. One of the highlights of Journii's career came when she recieved a personal invitation from legendary singer/songwriter Valerie Simpson to perform at her resturant " The Sugar Bar" in New York.
Her enormous talent and active potential did not render her immune to the tricky side of the music business, but it empowered her to navigate through it with style. In 2012, after walking away from a record deal, Journii opened her own entertainment company, Journii Walker Music and released her debut single “Scared” independently, which garnered an impressive social media following and led to her being approached by former Def Jam Senior Vice President of A&R Max Gousse, who deemed Journii “ the future of music.” She has consistently shown that she has the talent, heart, and drive to simply not be stopped; a fact further driven home when Alic “Paco” Walls from the Grammy nominated and Stellar Award winning Gospel group “The Walls Group” and 2x Grammy nominated songwriter (and indie artist) Kenyon Dixon took it upon themselves to do their own cover of Journii’s song “Scared". Currently she is working on new music that will be released soon.
“My purpose is to spread love and light one song at a time and create music that heals, unites and empowers the world." -Journii Walker
