Mere months after the release of his original album, Jam Hsiao is back with his latest cover album "Reminiscence" which features ten cover songs that are said to be classic Chinese hits.
Each of the songs were picked specially by Jam himself, and arranged completely differently from the original to inject new life into each song.
Always requesting a 'one-take' for every recording, Hsiao certainly worked himself and his creative team hard to put this album together.
A simple yet effective concept, I can't wait to hear it!
His first single "一次幸福的機會The blessed moment" is out now! Listen to it below!
The results for the nominations for the 2013 Golden melody awards(that is , the best albums from 2012) are in! I am pleased to anounce that some of my favourites such as producer Skot Suyama , all the male nominees (jay Chou , Yoga Lin , Jam Hsiao , Khalil Fong and Xiao yu) as well as Jolin Tsai and lala hsu have been nominated for the big awards! However , I was a little disappointed that some of the albums that I felt were some of the best were not nominated.
So I will be holding my own awards , where some of MY picks will be showcased , for Best Male Mandarin Album , Best Male Mandarin Singer , best Female Mandarin Singer and Best group. More updates soon! First up , Best Male Mandarin Singer nominations !

Too many new music videos are being released , so I'll just put them all together! First up , Claire Kuo's newest music video for her second single from her newest album <我们都能幸福着>(Keep on loving you) , called <别去问他好吗>(Please don't go and ask him)
Next , a special mention for Wang Leehom's newest single , called <12 zodiacs> . It was made specially for Jackie Chan's new movie. Seeing him head back to his hip-hop roots is really great , and the energy that he brings with him every single time is just awesome. Hes actually not signed to a record company right now , so I don't know when he will be releasing new albums , but if you want to support him by downloading this new single , you can do it on the website www.wangleehom.com , where you can also find a explanation from him personally on making music digital, or you can find it on itunes :https://itunes.apple.com/tw/album/shi-er-sheng-xiao-12-zodiacs/id585728712
Jam Hsiao has released his new single for one of my favourite songs on his new album , <papa> , with this lyrics and melody written by him. They are simple and touching , and the soft rock genre fits this song perfectly.
Woah , this is getting pretty long so this will be this last video on this post. Khalil Fong's single for his new album <Back to Wonderland> , called <Love instantly> has a new music video!
These are the two singles that Jam Hsiao has released for his new album of the name <It's all about love>. As I've said before , the concept could go either ways , but so far , so good!
