Singing redefined.

I am a multiple awards winning vocalist currently based in Hong Kong. Originally from Vancouver, I studied music in LA under Seth Riggs. Over my career, I had sung for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC and taught a lot of students in both Vancouver and Hong Kong.

I have so many I can think of. As of now, it is Andrea Bocelli. I love how he was able to play and sing even without sight. I love how he turned his blindness into his strength.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?


How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Musicians nowadays used a lot of technology. Technology is great to use. It can enhance us if we have the skill. However, it can also distort our sound and our skill. I'll like to see us going back to using our pure skill.

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble has been one of the best platform for musicians so far. I'm with FutureNet music. However, the platform is nowhere near as mature as Drooble.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Audience. At my last show, the audience were playing games on their phone during the show.

I attend to their show lives or buy their albums. Sometimes I get invites to perform with them.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I am a big fan of social media. I always believe using social media to do live stream is one of the best way to reach larger audience.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Noniko Hsu. She is one of the most talented flute players I've ever worked with. Back in 2017, I was approached to film her music video. We filmed it in a two days shoot. She was able to do things I couldn't imagine on the flute. She was a multi-talented musician who also understand filming and multi-media.
