This is one upcoming new artist that you really don't want to miss. And I mean really. This singer songwriter will be releasing her debut album on the 21st of December if I'm not wrong , titled <Catcher in the rye>. For those not familiar with literature , it is a classic novel.
First of all , who is Ann (bai an)?
She is a 21 year old singer songwriter specializing in electronic folk music. She if came into public attention with her demos on the popular Taiwanese music sharing site Streetvoice , where she became very popular when she was 17. She is signed with Bin music Taipei .
She has released one single for her debut album named <是什么让我遇见这样的你＞(what is it that let me meet this you ). A mouthful to say , but it all makes sense once you listen to the song. She has an amazing amazing voice , and if. We're to describe her in one word , it would be : unique. A electronic folk artist , she creates these songs that are unmistakably of that genre but relatable. Her vocal prowess is without flaw , and reminds me of stefanie sun. She has developed a singing technique that is very rare and difficult to develop , and I was overwhelmed by her proffesionalism in this aspect. Her voice has the power to be contained , but yet at the same time bring raw emotions to each and every song. The first single is simple , with only a piano accompaniment which adds to the simplicity and spiritual atmosphere of the song.
The song was written by Ann while she was in Beijing doing some recording work, where she first experienced herself as insignificant in the world , which I feel is really reflected in this song. the lyrics are simple but enchanting at the same time.
All in all , I was really taken aback by her skill and feel that she is really someone to look out for in the coming years. Especially to those of you who enjoy indie/folk/hipster music , this is for you but I encourage each and every one of you to support her , you will fall in love with her music as I did :)
Star potential rating: 5/5
