Jacinta Brondgeest was born in Oregon, but at six weeks her family relocated to Sydney, Australia. After years of being in bands, in 1997 Jacinta decided to take the solo artist route (with a solo name), writing and performing her own dance music around Australia.
Eventually, she started her own record label, Chunky Music, as well, releasing her first album, Sandalwood: Under the Influence, in 2000. The single "Wonderland" had enough play on Australian radio that it landed Jacinta a writing gig for the Australian/Canadian children's television show The Saddle Club. After moving to Austin, TX, to try her luck in the States, in 2005 Jacinta issued her second album, Smokescreen, whose first single, "Sunshine," had its own album of remixes that came out the same year. Destination followed in 2006. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi
