They were signed into ‘S Record Label (T.W.IsM.Records) and released a studio album entitled “3’s A Charm” in 1997.
After the disbandment of the group, her sisters continued creating songs as solo acts.
Together with her sisters, Jaimee produced the songs “In the Middle,” “I Wouldn’t Take Her Back,” “My Secret Is,” “24 Hours,” “I Can Do That,” and many more.
By the time Jaime was 19 years old, she was surviving on brief modeling assignments before she realized that she could earn more by joining the adult film industry.
