Lennox was born on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent. After his family moved to Grenada, a neighboring island, he discovered a love for music at the age of 8. His intrigue with music was so deep that he first learned to play guitar by drawing lines on his cricket bat and learning the finger placement for his first chord, ‘A.’ So by the time his parents bought him a guitar a year later, he already knew the three chords needed for his first song.
Self-taught and an avid observer, Lennox counts among his influences Kenny Rogers the storyteller, Bob Marley the voice of a generation, Al Green the soulful entertainer, and Joey Freitas, a college friend whose Hawaiian-jazz style became a basis for much of Lennox’ songwriting.
Lennox writes about his life, describing a Christian faith that perseveres through struggle and difficult circumstance. Overcoming the pain of rejection, and using one’s scars to heal others; and finding joy in every situation, even painful ones, is what Lennox shares in his lyrics, layered over an infectious rhythm and borne on soulful vocals that reach into the heart of every listener.
Lennox lives in Sheridan, Oregon, where he writes and records music, serves as a worship pastor and community organizer, and sits by the river every chance he gets.
