Jetrin Wattanasin (Thai: เจตริน วรรธนะสิน) or "J Jetrin" is a Thai pop musician and actor. He got his first major break in the music business when he secured heavy promotion by the Thai entertainment company, GMM Grammy. Since 1991, he has produced numerous commercially successful music albums, and continues to tour internationally in support of his most recent recordings. Upon the conclusion of his current United States tour, entitled "The Return of J Jetrin," he will have completed the most extensive tour of the United States by any Thai recording artist, with dates scheduled in 12 US cities, spanning from Hawaii to the East Coast.[1]

Music career[edit]

In 1991, Jetrin released his debut solo album Jor-Ae-Bor (Thai: จ เ-ะ บ), emerging from the shadow of his already famous singer brother Jirayuth "Joe" Wattanasin.

After his seventh release 7th Heaven, in November 2007, Jetrin performed over 60 performances around Thailand, concluding with a show entitled "Radioactive the Musical Party by J Jetrin" at the Impact Arena in Bangkok.

Jetrin is currently performing a tour of the United States entitled "The Return of J Jetrin," with dates in Honolulu, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Fort Worth, Dallas, Washington DC, Atlanta, Boston, New York, Houston and Chicago.[2] He is performing vocals with the backing of musicians MJ and Bowbo of "3 Kings and the Babe" and DJ 2 Fives. The tour is being sponsored by Singha Beer.

Acting career[edit]

To date, Jetrin has appeared in two feature films. The Pang brothers' Hong Kong/Thai 2006 horror-fantasy film, Re-Cycle, as a secondary character, and Chatchai Naksuriya's Thai coming-of-age 2008 film, Friendship, as an older character who recalls his younger days and his first love.[3]
