At the age of 12, Joonie and his family relocated to Seattle, Washington, there he found his own musical path, and began teaching himself how to play the piano, guitar and other instruments. Joonie recalls how he'd lock himself in his room for days on end, focused on his craft and fueled by his desire to master these instruments to create music and write lyrics to express what he was feeling.
