She was born in Seoul, South Korea and lived in various parts of the world in her youth from her home country to Nigeria, Sweden and then to New York City. She graduated with BA in Political Science from Emory University, intending to follow in her father’s footsteps as a diplomat, but instead she moved to New York and became an artist.
After demo deals with Atlantic Records and London Records at the start of her songwriting career, Jihae decided to release her work independently so she could “express honestly”.
In 2009 Jihae launched Septem, a boutique music and multimedia company dedicated to music for production and social cause based projects. Septem is also a digital platform to showcase artists of any medium curated by select artists.
In 2010 Jihae co-created a rock opera, Fire Burning Rain, with Academy award winning playwright/director, John Patrick Shanley, based on her concept album of the same name.
“Illusion of You”, her latest album, is due out in Spring 2014. It was co-produced by Jihae and Jean-Luc Sinclair with executive producer, Dave Stewart. Dave Stewart is also guest artist on this album, along with Django James and Sam Stewart from the band Nightmare and the Cat. The moving and soulful “Illusion of You” features a co-write with Jihae, Leonard Cohen and Dave Stewart called “It Just Feels”.
