London, United Kingdom

Original front woman and co-founder of funky post punkers Maximum Joy is an English musician, she formed Maximum Joy in the early 80's and reformed the band in 2015 - then from that she formed MXMJoY and also makes solo music under her own name Rainforth. Janine makes & produces music from her North London base. Her music infused beginnings drew on multiple genres; she grew up Bristol and was part of the fertile Bristol music scene in the 1980s alongside contemporaries such as the Wild Bunch & the Pop Group. She never stops moving in terms of seeking new sounds and new musical experiences and always cherishing soul-filled tunes, she has a broad take. Her eclectic sound and sets reflect this in her live sets and her radio sets.
