Janice Wong a.k.a. "The Wong Janice" is an Australian-born music producer and classically-trained cellist based in Amsterdam.
She graduated with a Licentiate Diploma in Music of cello performance (L.Mus.A) at age 18 and then went on to chase a career in marketing while playing the cello in bands and as a session musician at night. Her live highlights include performing sold-out concerts with Imogen Heap and Michael Kiwanuka. After 6 years as a Social Media Manager for international sportswear brand Adidas, in 2017 Janice decided to pursue music full-time. She recently graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Music Production and Sound Engineering at Abbey Road Institute in Amsterdam and worked as Assistant Audio Engineer at Red Bull Studios Amsterdam. As a freelancer, Janice performs with singer-songwriters, bands & DJs, composes for advertisements/games/films, works as (online) session cellist (for live performances & remote recordings), arranges strings, records string loops/samples and is busy producing her own music for her latest concept: live cello meditation. She creates cello soundtracks for different moods and emotions, using a loop machine to create low drones and sweeping cello melodies on top. Her latest release, titled Cello Music for Meditation is out now on all major digital channels.
