“I got into the entertainment industry when I was 10, that’s when I moved to Thailand. It was my first time living in a big city so there were a lot of opportunities. And I actually started with modelling and acting, first. I began as an extra and I would slowly get bigger roles. I also wanted to try bigger roles other than acting.”

As Jannine journeyed through her career, she decided to join her first singing competition at the age of 11. Little did she know, this decision of her would change her plans and sparked her passion for music. That’s when the A-pop star decided to pursue her career in music.

“After the competition, I got signed to my first record label in Thailand. After 6 months of being a trainee, I started my own Youtube channel.”

Now, Jannine’s Youtube journey started about 7 years ago. Originally just a try on using the platform, since a lot of influencers were doing it, Jannine’s audience grew bigger and bigger, and before she knew it, she already has 3.7 million subscribers under her name.

“I’d have to say that that’s definitely my most life changing decision ever. I don’t think I would be here if I hadn’t started my Youtube channel.”

 With Red Records

With the label’s commitment to shining light on the talents within ASEAN, RedRecords signed Jannine as the first-ever artist under them.

 “I couldn’t believe it when I found out RedRecords wanted me to be their first signing, It felt surreal, knowing that an international company had recognized me, a young girl based in Bangkok who started off doing covers on YouTube,” she says.

Before signing, Jannine worked singlehandedly, coping with all herself with the aid of supportive family – from her music to all her career choices. She believes that this background and the know-how and seasoned team of the label is a winning mix.

“My fans are going to love all the incredible surprises that we have in store for them. I cannot wait for them to hear my new music”.
