Nile (born Jenée Grevious) is an American[1] singer. In 2002 she released her debut album, Born.[2] She listed family, spirituality and nature as influences in her music.[3] Her music has been described as Bristolian[4] and may be thought of as trip hop.


NILE is the daughter of a Blackfoot Indian mother and a French father. Explaining why she chose the name NILE, she said "I’m an Aquarius and so Nile stood out for me. Plus it’s easier to say."[3]
