Gee Mojina represents a new generation of talented jazz-influenced female pop vocalists coming into the music scene.
Influenced by jazz legends such as Billie Holiday, Stacey Kent and Norah Jones, the contrast in Gee’s old-school vocal style with her youthful aura gives a breath of fresh air to music listeners wherever she performs.

Her career as a performer started in 2009 as the lead vocalist for Sabahan band, Elixir. Together they have performed at the Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival 2011 and was later sponsored by the KKJF to perform at the Penang Island Jazz Festival in December 2011.

Gee begins a new chapter in her musical career in 2013 as she explores her potential as a recording artiste under RAM Production, a recording label owned by acclaimed acoustic fingerstyle guitarist and producer, Roger Wang.

Her first single “A Gorgeous Day” is expected to be released in April 2013.

Elixir was formed in 2008 by Daniel Mojina, who is the bandleader and guitarist, Elixir has had a steady growth every since, especially in the local jazz scene. The present line up includes Gavin Lawrence (Saxophone), Moses De Silva (Bass) and Shaun Harun (Drums).
