While some of my favorite idols/actors/etc have been releasing, there’s an interesting mix of other news about singersongwriters aka really artists I like or respect but have a hard time making a full post on because it’s harder to find their songs/vids for recently releases on youtube.
This is the MV for singer-songwriter Levi‘s new release, Resentment. I’ve never heard of him, but I thought the song was pretty, and the MV was filmed prettily. No weird makeup, and no LED screens. Very nicely made for someone who isn’t really all that big in China. I was waiting for it to be uploaded by someone else, but since no one did, I just grabbed it off tudou in LQ.
Levi – Xin Jie
Indie group from Guangdong Yu Fei Men also released an album, which is out at Yesasia (!) to buy. The lead singer’s voice is very pretty, and the album supposedly is good I recommend you checking it out if you see it. Don’t get turned off by their main plug, which is not as good as the rest of the album, but is unfortunately what they sang on Jie Jie Gao Sheng recently, one of the most high-profile things they’ve done.
Also, someone asked me in this post, who was the member of Shui Mu Nian Hua (The Age of Water and Wood) that left. Well, apparently his name is Li Jian, he’s also a Qinghua University graduate like SMNH, he’s releasing his fourth album Yin Yue Ao Gu this year on December 22nd, and he recently released a beautiful single Gu Xian Shan Chuan. This song is currently beating Top Combine’s Qi Tian Da Sheng in the Music Radio charts.
Singer-songwriter Wang Zhengliang, from Superboys 2007, a Sichuaner duets with Jane Zhang in her newest endeavor to make him popular. As previously stated, he’s her friend, and was the first she signed onto her own company – Show Music. She’s doing a good job as a manager/producer because his other composition, duet with Rachel Liang has gotten to the top ten Music radio charts.
And I usually don’t talk too much about Anson Hu on this site, because he’s fairly well covered on other sites, but I just wanted to link this! His new MV features Ady An!!! I haven’t seen her in an MV for a while.
