Originally performing as ‘Janine and The Mixtape’, New Zealand-born, LA-based Janine first made her mark on the industry in 2013 when her EP Dark Mind soared to #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #2 on iTunes Top R&B/Soul Albums Chart. With lead single ‘Hold Me’ reaching the Top 10 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, Janine quickly set the tone for her upward trajectory.
Taking her Before It’s Too Late live show across the US for the first time in 2018, Janine continued to see success in commanding control of her journey as an artist - her sound becoming recognisable as indie R&B infused with soulful melodies, alternative pop sensibilities and intricate soundscapes.
Critically acclaimed by Complex, VIBE, Billboard and MTV, Janine spent the following years releasing incredibly well-crafted music, from debut 2018 album 99, which Industry Me labelled a ‘coherent, classic embodiment of great storytelling and vocal poise’ to 2021’s hit single ‘Loving Me’ which currently sits at over 14 million Spotify streams. A true self-sufficient artist, Janine creates, directs and edits her creative, often engineering her own music and opting to record in her closet over big studios.
Watch: Janine – Saved Me
“polished production, raw evocative lyrics and a well-defined sound” - Industry Me
“she knows what she wants as an artist...her musical identity is clear” - Sweet Madness
“soulful pipes and smooth, seductive melodies...an artist determined to be bigger” - The Spinoff
Taking pride in her independence as a musician, Janine has carefully curated her artistry, building her audience over the years to create the devoted legion of fans she has worldwide today. Her hard work allowed her to take some time away from performing live, only to return in 2023 with a sold-out show at the infamous Troubadour in LA, a true testament to her incredible connection with her fans. Rounding out the year with the release of single ‘Saved Me’, a meaningful sentiment for the singer-songwriter.
A must-see live act, Janine will arrive on home soil with a show to remember and a collection of incredible stories to tell.
