That’s right! Two more singers are joining the December release bandwagon, and this time they’re of the zgf singer-songwriter variety, Hou Xian and Vae, probably China’s most popular. Vae, is a doctor-songwriter who had written and digitally released over 100 songs, and had gained a hardcore fanbase online before finally deciding to release an album last year.
For those of you who don’t know or don’t remember Vae from when I first posted on him, you can check out this song from his first album:
His first single from his second album:
It’s said the album will cover a very wide range of styles, and like last time, only be available by ordering through his website, vaecn. I still don’t even know if he’s really serious about the songwriting thing, or if he’s just doing it on the side next to his medical work. At any rate, he seems to be a very prolific songwriter so it may not be much trouble balancing it all.
As for Hou Xian, there’s been a series of articles about him ever since he signed with Tian Hao entertainment, and today there was an article about how he’s trying get his album for next month. To which I ask why? I hope he pushes it back…especially since I liked how he took his time with perfecting each album/EP he made because so far I’ve liked almost every song he’s released. Tian Hao recently just signed Sara, HIT-5, and Hou Xian, and they seem to be putting all their eggs in one basket by having them release around the same time. Sara just released her EP, HIT-5’s being recorded, and now Hou Xian too?
Since we’re talking about Zhong Guo Feng singer-songwriters, listen to poor Kent’s recently released EP. He’s the least famous of the three and would need the sales most, but I guess he’s still lucky he got in before the big convergences of releases in December.

And aren’t non-mainland singer-songwriters of similar style like JJ Lin releasing? I might as well take next year off if most of my favorite singers that I like are releasing before the year is out.
