★ ARTIST BIOS ★
A multi dimensional queer womxn of color, and a native to the Mission District of San Francisco, Jaewynn serves nothing but essence. Unfoldingher life experiences like a 90s/2000s mixtape. A rose that grew from the concrete, Jaewynn transforms her life experiences and ascends from them like a Phoenix rising. Jaewynn has the unique capability of merging storytelling, queer narratives and femxle empowerment in a personal way that end up resonating with people of all backgrounds. Through her deep tonality, metaphors and cadence you can feel the strength, courage and the pain she has endured, while painting you a picture of power & freedom from the chains that bind us.
TRAGIK began her musical journey over 15 years ago as a rapper, singer, songwriter, and DJ making electronic and dance music. She has performed all over the US and South America. Teaming up with grammy nominated producer, Stylo, she was able to bend genres and create a world of her own.
Having spent the majority of the last decade working as a creative director, photographer, artist, and dj, specializing in music videos and documentary work, Tragik has captured developing and established artists with indie and major record labels. Her innovative and unique style, with the ability to create something from nothing through a surreal lens has her set apart from other directors and has since established a style of her own. Her work as a director alone has garnered over 30 million views on YouTube. With an eye for viral and beautifully produced content, she started her own creative label, INVERTED, emphasizing the importance of female collective, diversity & inclusion. In 2012, she formed a viral “girl punk band” with Grimes and Kreayshawn called L$D. The same year she released one of her first singles, “CLUB KING” with the video featuring Grimes, Kreayshawn, Brooke Candy, Jesse Saint John, Gabe of Uzi, and more.
Her music has been featured on MTV, Fader, Vice and Complex.
