Dawen started out an an extremely well-polished and talented youtuber who I noticed about a year ago, when his friend and artist Rachel Liang shared his chinese cover of <Call me maybe>! He's gone on to reflect his chinese heritage by covering a lot of mainstream pop songs in chinese, but also has gained many a fan through his unique and fresh combination of acoustic arrangement and acapella vocal styles as well as lots of other kinds of genres to make a style which is uniquely Dawen. Finally, he's released his own album, and I am so proud , having seen him grow as an artist and a person throughout the years.
His first song, <你好> has a really adorable music video that combines a lot of elements of taiwanese/taipei culture as well as a very spontaneous well about it all. his happiness and the catchiness of the melody is infective , and I just couldn't help playing the song over and over!
He's also released his second music video, <美丽>(Beautiful), so be sure to check it out as well!
<Acid Rain> is a song that Dawen's professed to be one of his favourites on the album as he was able to arrange it closely to the kind of genres that he likes to listen to in his spare time. However, I recommend <Firecracker> , a song that is filled with the fiery warmth and happiness that denotes a typical Chinese new year celebration. (This is where he got the inspiration for the song from).
Also check out the MV for his new duet with Kimberley Chen <Let's work it out>, as well as his acoustic cover of <回心转意>(Changing my mind)
