Born in Cologne to a Korean mother and German father, both of whom are opera singers, JOSIN grows up in a household with music at its centre. Nevertheless, she decides to follow a childhood dream and studies medicine in Nice. « I did my first year of medical school, but there was something missing. I think I never really saw what was there all along – music. Maybe because it was so normal to grow up in an artistic environment. At some point the inner voice became inevitable and I knew that I had to follow this path.“ She drops out of college, moves to Hamburg and develops her musical identity as a self-taught artist and producer.
JOSIN’s music sees a dynamic blend of electronic jolts, vibrating sounds and poetic vocals. Somewhere between heart and mind the profoundness of her songs seems to resonate. The warm melancholy of her production repeatedly merge into the electronic world. Her music is complex and honest at the same time – haunting and fragile. There’s ultimately something quite arresting about JOSIN, and her debut marks an exciting start for a compelling new artist.
JOSIN has toured with RY X, BOY, Roosevelt and Sóley and played at festivals such as Maifeld Derby, Puls Open Air, Burning Eagle, Artlake, c/o Pop Festival and Iceland Airwaves where she won audiences and critics over.
