Asian Empowerment

Having lived in 6 countries and trained and worked in fashion and music industries, I’ve had so many stories to tell and to inspire fellow minorities out there. After turning down a record deal in Taiwan I returned to Scotland for my first show as an independent artist at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Edinburgh is where we started our journey, and we want to perform in every country we visit: to be heard and to promote my native Taiwan. 

While most people have no clue where Taiwan is, they are likely very familiar with its famous export - boba tea. Through my music I want to showcase the other things that make Taiwan special; rich culture, strong family, and the kindest, most hospitable people you will meet.

This part of the blog documents our one of a kind journey. My mission is to use my voice to empower Asian minorities all over the world and I hope one day my voice can make a difference, big and small. 

I hope you like and support what we are doing!

每個人都說不可能的事,你敢去做嗎?

今年六月,我開始了這個想法
“我想用我的音樂讓世界認識台灣”

沒有唱片公司也沒有任何贊助廠商的支援
我與我的夥伴兼攝影師和經紀人Nate 開始了這個不可能的任務

今年七月,我回到我成長的城市愛丁堡
在全球最大的藝術節開始了我的旅程
彈著借來的吉他,唱了七首自創曲、一首蘇格蘭曲和一首台語歌,接下來飛到了美國,分別在柏克萊、舊金山和洛杉磯演出並拍用這隻MV記錄我們的故事

這支 “何去何從” 的MV分三段,從這禮拜起每週會分享一些拍攝的點滴
PART 1 我們從最開始在完全不知道怎麼拍攝或操作器材的狀況下在愛丁堡開拍
PART 2 在舊金山慢慢進入狀況 
PART 3 在洛杉磯終於拍出接近專業的水平

獨自奮鬥真的很辛苦、支持台灣的原創音樂和獨立音樂人
我的力量很小但分享的力量比什麼都大
只有靠你們的按讚與分享
才能讓更多人知道我們的故事
讓更多人聽見台灣,認識這塊充滿人情味和原創精神的小島
