our new artiste, yeh foong, is one who comes in a complete package:
singer, jester and entertainer all rolled in one. what more do you want?
yeh foong has the stage presence that many veterans would dream of.
even at her debut performance at NBT (the jacky cheung tribute), she did
enough to convince everyone that she is a not just a new discovery, but
a talent who has been waiting for a chance to shine.
many have witnessed how she conquered the stage with impressive
singing, and unique brand of humor. this kind of talent starts from
small age, definitely.
yeh foong has plenty of expressions in her singing. she has
character, a very strong character. she has natural charm on stage,
coupled with bone-tickling humor, she would be a valuable performer
where "entertaintment" is the foremost criteria.
she would be the new genre of singers that would help pop pop music to further strengthen and add variety to our artiste pool.
yeh foong: the singer, jester and entertainer all rolled in one
it took us some time to write this post, cos we needed time to digest what happened at the last NBT gig.
we saw something precious, something that never happened before.
another star is born. this time, it takes on a totally different package: singing, jesting and entertaining all in one package. the amazing trio that comprises of jeffery lim, worm lee and our most stunning newcomer, yeh foong.
the fact that they could sing cantonese even to the approval of some HK guests on the spot is not enough, they managed to tickled the funny bones and really brought the crowd to a musical orgasm, as what we promised earlier.
what a night, what a memorable experience. we are sure NBT seldom had such rapturous response before, we are damn sure.
this trio has everything going for them. they have chemistry on stage, they harmonize perfectly and their jokes worked on the crowd. and it is only their debut! debut, my goodness! imagine how far they could go given more exposures and stage experiences.
the crowd feedback is 100%, in fact, some said they wished the music could go on all the way until dawn. almost everyone likes our newcomer, yeh foong, she has such natural charm on stage. this woman is a gem of a find, many friends told us that night.
we have a trump card on board now, make no mistake.
do expect more stage performances from this amazing trio next year, finger crossed.
for the longest time, hong kong couldn't produce any singer-songwriters worthy to challenge the unshakeable standing of taiwan's top singer-songwriters like cheer chen and deserts zhang xuan. it is either HK doesn't have the culture and environment, or such genre of singer-songwriters would not be able of survive. a few came and went, but never able to stay long in the scene.
here comes ellen loo, reputedly to be the best female guitarist in HK now, and the one who played guitar in eason chan's DUO concert two years ago. she did steal the limelight from eason then.
coming from an indie background, ellen certainly has the style, attitude and substance to go far. her guitar playing is commendable too. the guitar riffs in this song sound refreshingly different.
HK cantopop has been in the doldrums for the last decade or more, we need more singer-songwriters like ellen to rejuvenate and bring a breath of fresh air to the dying music scene
tay cher siang was featured in China Press yesterday
once upon a time, local chinese media didn't know what to make out of
questions and eyebrows were raised: "what sort of music is that?",
"why did you only do cover versions, not original compositions?", "you mean
albums like these can sell meh?", "why don't your singers have music
videos?", "what's so special about your recording?"....etc etc.
today, they are aware, they know and they recognize us.
thank you to all the musicians and singers in the team who helped us to gain respect from the local chinese media.
