For the Melbourne-raised, Los Angeles-based R&B singer (born Justerini Sandoval), music has played an emotional role ever since childhood. RINI remembers his father playing classic rock jams over their massive sound system for all their neighbors to hear when they lived in the Philippines. When he moved to Melbourne, he started playing in his church’s band and busking throughout his teenage years, which ultimately propelled him into his career today.
From his first official release in 2016 until now, RINI has cultivated his own unique sound which has gathered millions of loyal fans all over the globe. In partnership with Abstract Music and Warner Records, RINI continues to write and share his truth through music - allowing his fans to get to know him through his wins and losses.
