She uses piano as her primary instrument. She began the Green Caravan Tour in April 2007, and performed in Central Park on Earth Day at the Green Apple Festival
New York-based singer/songwriter Cynthia Lin captures audiences with a refreshing blend of acoustic jazz and poetic folk to match her soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics. Since 2003, Cynthia has released two albums independently and toured nationally. Her recent album Doppelganger was named Top 5 of 2007 by AsiaXpress.com.
The Shanghai Restoration Project (TSRP) draws its creative inspiration from the old 1930s Shanghai jazz bands, an early combination of East and West that’s become an international legend. Produced by Chinese-American Dave Liang, TSRIP revives this exotic blend by introducing Eastern instruments and rhythms to the Western sounds of hip-hop and electronica. TSRP songs have been used in numerous television shows, films, and commercials around the world.
Come see these rising and/or well-established Taiwanese American musical artists perform and talk about their experiences!!
