Back in his high school, Fenley moved to Canada with his family. Thus, in this place, he has been surrounded by country songs. He then started to love country songs. He was influenced by great singers like Boyz II Men, Ray Charles, and Percy Sledge.

Fenley began writing songs at the age of 15 and started playing the guitar at the age of 18. He learned how to play the songs he loved by himself and he performed those songs at the bars.

Fenley had then realized what type of artist he is after realizing that he loves hearing any kind of music. He had this “genre-free philosophy” type of performance. This type of performance attracts his audience and would always have this great surprise which brings his audience a great impact.
