Jin Jin (aka Janée Bennett) boasts a more diverse catalogue and interesting journey than your average songwriter. With multi-platinum hits across genres, her own label/publishing/management company, Jinsing, and a Senior A&R position at Parlophone Records, she has achieved so much since hanging out in her Grandad’s reggae shop as a child. Focusing throughout her career on nurturing the best up-coming artists and writers she has a driving passion for helping others realise their potential. Recognising the early talent of the now seven times #1 artist Jess Glynne whilst hosting a song-writing masterclass at Jess’s college, Jin Jin went on to co-write the UK No. 1’s ‘Hold My Hand’ and ‘Not Letting Go’ by Tinie Tempah feat. Jess Glynne, ‘Real Love’ (UK No. 2) and ‘Right Here’ (UK No. 6), being involved in 10 tracks on the debut albumoverall. She also co-wrote 10 tracks on Jess’s second album Always In Between. Both of Jess’s albums have topped the charts, and Jin Jin was nominated for an Ivor Novello and won a BMI Award for her writing on ‘Hold My Hand’. Jess’s debut album I Cry When I Laugh is now 4 x Platinum in the UK alone. Brought up in Manchester, she moved to London and became known initially for her work in the UK grime scene with Wiley and Roll Deep, but has gone on to collaborate with a host of international producers and artists. Producers such as Fraser T Smith, Toby Gad, Stephen Di Genius, Diplo, and David Guetta, and artists Jax Jones, Paloma Faith & Sigala, RAYE, Jonas Blue & Sabrina Carpenter, Madison Beer, ONE OK ROCK, Sean Paul, Rita Ora, Clean Bandit, Nina Nesbitt, Craig David, Gary Barlow and most recently break-through artists Hailee Steinfeld and Becky G.
