Juwita Suwito started off in the professional music scene in her late teens as a backing vocalist for prominent Malaysian artistes and events.
She has since released two albums, one EP and two singles. Brand New World (2004), For Real (2006), Take Five with Juwita Suwito at Avanti (live recording, 2008) and Sejak Hadirmu (single, 2009) all received AIM (Malaysian Music Industry Awards) nominations, with Brand New World leading the pack by clinching the Best Local English Album award in 2005 in addition to 3 nominations in other categories. Her soaring single Stand, released in July 2010, rode high on the airwaves and continues to garner very positive response from near and far.
As a vocalist and performer, the former Malaysian Idol vocal coach continues to make headway in the global arena. She has performed in Adelaide, Bandar Sri Begawan, Brisbane, Canberra, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Moscow, Nairobi, Perth, Singapore, Taipei and Zurich, while her music has also been released in Taiwan, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
Juwita thrives on a down-to-earth relationship with her listeners and has a passion to encourage youth to discover and realize their full potential. She is one of the founder directors of Four Forty Records, a social enterprise with a vision to unleash the power of music to inspire and achieve social change.
In December 2010, Juwita’s adventurous streak brought her on a maiden voyage into the world of theatre, debuting in the musical Follow the Light that played at PJ Live Arts. She also hosted LiteFM’s weekly radio show Best of Asia between April and June 2011, and continues to inspire with her special brand of music.
