Biography & careerEdit

He was born as Kwantat Na Takuatung (ขวัญทัศน์ ณ ตะกั่วทุ่ง) at Thonburi side, Bangkok Yai District behind Wat Arun Ratchawararam (Temple of Dawn) with one brother and one sister. His grandmother raised him until he grew up in Bang Khae area. Na Takuatung called her "Grand Mammy" until the age of 6 his grandmother died. So he returned to live with his family.

He entered the music industry as a choir for famous bands in 1980s and entered a singing contest broadcast on Channel 3.

While he studied at Ratchadamnoen Commercial School after graduating junior high school from nearby Taweethapisek School, he formed a band with friends to play music in pubs at night. In 1990, he had the opportunity to release a first studio album in the pop genre with RS Promotion titled Sampas Touch, but it was not very successful.

Na Takuatung succeeded in 1991 when he released his second studio album Touch Thunder and changed the genre to pop dance, including breakdance and Dance-rock on his own. During this time, he was famous and popular (he was often compared with Grammy Entertainment's Jetrin Wattanasin[1]). He released two more studio albums in 1993 and 1995, as well as several special albums, and also starred in many films and TV series.

In 1997, he was arrested in a drug case in a condominium near Tha Phra Intersection. The fifth studio album Touch Cyclone, released in 1998, was banned from opening the song. After this, Na Takuatung continued to release four more studio albums before turning to singing Luk Thung (Thai country song).

In early 2007, Na Takuatung graduated with a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Ramkhamhaeng University.[2][3]
