Crowd Lu on breakfast, family and homelessness –

“A Tainan boy living in Taipei, trying to sing out his ideas about life using an acoustic guitar. Likes to eat breakfast. Positive thinking in music aids digestion.” When asked to describe himself in one sentence to fans, this is how quirky Taiwanese singer-songwriter Crowd Lu decided to do it. Famous for his obsession with breakfast as the most important meal of the day (he’s even written a song about it), the 31 year-old who was recently crowned ‘Best Male Singer’ at Hello Asia’s C-Pop awards

Zooey Wonder: Why You Would Fall In Love with Wonderland –

Crowned Hello Asia’s Best Newcomer at the recent 2016 C-pop awards, this accomplishment was by no means the biggest achievement of Taiwanese indie singer-songwriter Zooey Wonder’s year.

The prolific artist, who since his debut in 2006 has made a name for himself with his unique curation of Soul, R&B, Urban, Blues and Jazz music is largely lauded for his introduction of soul and blues music into the Chinese music scene.

Live Review: Kowen Ko (柯智棠)@ Simple Life Festival 2016

​I like to think that finding Kowen Ko (柯智棠)’s music was fate at work pointing me in the right direction. I first heard him live at the Golden Melody Awards showcase in July this year, where he appeared as a special guest for his cousin Waa and performed a couple of songs (Note: This was in fact not the first time I had heard him sing; I had merely forgotten…see the post from April 2015 below.
