Andrea "Jemiini" Olavarria was born on May 27,1989. At the age of 9,
she began to develop her passion for music. Inspired by top billboard
artist such as Lauryn Hill, Gwen Stefani, Aaliyah, Da Brat and Missy
Elliot, Jemiini began to write and record original music. The road
from 9 to 19 years old wasn't easy. The lack of support from her
family made it difficult for her to pursue her dream, but never was it
impossible. Jemiini found every and any way possible to stay in the
music scene and record music. In 2008 she met Tiffany "Recklezz"
Vazquez, an up and coming audio engineer/producer and immediately hit
it off. Their shared passion for music developed their friendship and
business venture into an entirely new realm. From performing at venues
together to helping Jemiini record her tracks, Recklezz quickly filled
the void Jemiini faced growing up. In 2011 Jemiini and Recklezz opened
The Shop Studios, a full service recording studio. The Shop Studios
was open for business 24 hours a day, providing local artists with
resources including a recording studio, high quality video production,
graphic production, dance rehearsal space, CD duplications, flyer's,
etc. A lack of dedication. effort, support, and loyalty from those
closest to Jemiini caused The Shop Studios to close after 8 short
months. After losing everything, a discouraged Jemiini moved to Fort
Lauderdale, Florida with Recklezz and rejoined the regular workforce
with a 9-5 job. It wasn't long before Jemiini realized that she was
born to perform. Even in a struggling economy and the personal
financial crisis they were facing did not stop them. Recklezz and
Jemiini moved back to West Palm Beach to stay with family. Shortly
thereafter Jemiini rejoined the music scene, performing at venues and
recording once again. A breakthrough came when a friend by the name
of David "King Nyne" Herbert introduced her to a production team
called Prostreamz LLC. Prostreamz shot Jemiini's first music video, a
remix to the popular song "Birthday Cake" by Rhianna. Within 24 hours
of the video's release on YouTube.com, she had over 2,000 views.
Roughly 2 months and 12,000 views later, Jemiini has performed in over
15 venues, featured in 3 online magazines, started a video blog and
released her very first mixtape entitled "To Whom It May Concern".
With Jemiini's social media awareness growing exponentially as well,
the promise she made to herself and her supporters to reach the top,
gets more realistic with every day and every performance that passes.
Jemiini is ready to take on the music industry, but now the question stands is the music industry ready for Jemiini?
"@ Ronald - I say you are wrong. Like Matt said, about 20k buy the Units stuff, both the Beauty and Beast sold around 20k. That is clearly the Units core fan base. But like I said, Bucks Before the Beast tape, which was a free download, had over 60k…"
