Biography[edit]

Viphurit was born in Bangkok, Thailand. His father is an architect, whilst his mother is a graphic designer. Viphurit moved to Hamilton, a little city south of Auckland, New Zealand, when he was 9. He got his first instrument there; a drum which he desired since he was little. However, Viphurit was forced to stop playing drum and turned to guitar since the drum sound was said to be disturbing the neighbours.[3] Viphurit moved back to Thailand when he was 18 to study at Mahidol University International College.[4]

In Thailand, Viphurit became known on from his original and cover songs on YouTube, and signed to indie label Rat Records. He released his debut album Manchild in 2017. His following two singles, "Long Gone" and "Lover Boy", earned him international recognition as their music videos spread online. He toured internationally in 2018, performing in Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Poland, Germany, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, the United States, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore.[1]
