Singular became popular with its first two singles called ‘24/7’ and ‘Bao Bao’. After the band split up in 2013, Sin has pursued his solo career. Thus, last year he introduced his self-written song ‘Goodbye’ which is also his first solo single. This song brings out Sin’s gentle voice which is underlined by violin sounds.

What is more, he also sang the title song of the Lakorn Lom Son Rak (The Wind Hides Love) starring popular half-Thai actor Nadech Kugimiya. Producer Nueng Narongvit chose Sin to sing this song because he found his voice that is ‘Gentle like the wind’ fitted the drama perfectly. This song was awarded the most popular song at the EFM Awards.
Sin started singing at the Bangkok Opera choir when he was in junior high school. Thus, he discoved his love for performing taking his time to figure out what his favourite musical styles are. He gets his inspiration mostly from books, reading but also from watching movies and TV.
Finally, Sin’s secret to entertaining people as a solo artist is to simply be oneself and to have fun. Thus, today he is elaborating on his solo career and calls himself ‘A Song Painter’ which is also the title of his new Live Showcase.
