THIS SHOW IS 21+
“Seductive and soulful, this one may have you dialing your ex. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.” – Vibe Magazine
Janine is a fiercely talented songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. She is also a self-sufficient artist who has created her own artwork and directed music videos. But, her greatest weapon: an ethereal and devastatingly beautiful voice that commands every single verse, hook and refrain. She’s magnetic – bringing you into her world.
Born in New Zealand, Janine dedicated herself to music almost as soon as she could walk, recording herself singing her favorite tunes on a double cassette player at the age of five. At the age of fourteen, she began performing her original songs with a guitar at open mics, mostly held at bars she wasn’t technically allowed into. As a result, her art remains as honest as it is hypnotic.
Under original moniker Janine and The Mixtape, the artist made quite a mark since first arriving stateside in 2011. She moved to New York quietly building a buzz, the songstress penned, produced, and recorded 2013’s independent Dark Mind EP. Following placements on VH1’s Black Ink Crew and Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta, it vaulted to #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #2 on iTunes Top R and B/Soul Albums Chart, while the single “Hold Me” went Top 10 on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts and #1 on iTunes New Zealand.
Tastemakers including Complex, VIBE, Billboard, MTV, and more lauded her sound. Signing to Atlantic Records, she co-produced 2015’s XX EP (pronounced ex’s) with 4e. The project went on to win “Best R and B Album” at the New Zealand Music Awards in between touring the states with Floetry.
