Biography

Born into a Thai-Chinese family,[1] Joey Boy started listening to hip hop when he was 14 years old and skateboarding. In 1994, he was signed to Bakery Music. His first release was a self-titled EP. He recorded nine more albums with the label.

In 2000, he moved to GMM Grammy, where he runs his own record label, Gancore Club, and produces other artists.

He has spent time in the United States, where he became acquainted with Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, who co-produced Joey Boy’s song “LA to BKK”. He met Will.i.am outside a disco in San Francisco, and introduced himself. “Hey you, we’re Thai rappers and we like your songs,” he recalls saying to Will.i.am.[2] When the Black Eyed Peas came to Thailand in 2004, Joey Boy was the opening act and was invited onstage by Will.i.am during the Black Eyed Peas’ show.[3] He also opened for the Black Eyed Peas when they played in Bangkok in 2006, and has continued to collaborate with the band on his albums.[4]

Joey Boy was among the Thai pop music artists participating in Ramakien: A Rak Opera, a rock-opera adaptation of Thailand’s national epic, the Ramakien, at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts in 2006.

He made his feature film debut in December 2006 in The Possible as the leader of a 1970s Thai band patterned after The Impossibles who time travel to the present day.

He then made a hit single “Teerak” featuring Tinglish.
