Hennessy Artistry 2013 Talents
Sodagreen ─ Taiwanese Indie Tour De Force
Formed in 2001, Sodagreen is a Taiwanese indie band whose six-member lineup has remained unchanged since 2003. The band gained prominence after performing at the Ho-hai-yan Rock Festival, after which it signed up with Willlin Music. In May 2004, Sodagreen released their first single “Aerial Visions, Sounds And Illusions (空氣中的視聽與幻覺)” at Taipei’s National Chengchi University School Rock event, catapulting them onto Mandopop stardom. Though a signed band, producer Will Lin continues to encourage Sodagreen to retain and cultivate their indie style and sound for their fan base. Sodagreen was also the first ever indie-style band to perform at the Taipei Arena.
Samantha Jade ─ Australian Blues Diva
Samantha Jade is an Australian singer-songwriter who was the first female to ever win the (fourth series) of The X Factor (Australia) in November 2012. She subsequently released her debut single “What You’ve Done to Me” which reached No.1 on the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Singles Chart, while her self-titled album reached third place on the ARIA album chart. She is an outstanding musical talent who has both attracted the public spotlight and has gained music industry recognition.
Kay Tse ─ A Cantopop Talent
Kay Tse achieved runaway success in 2008 with her album “Binary” and the single “Wedding Invitation Street (囍帖街)” which broke platinum record sales and topped the four major charts in Hong Kong. As a result, she walked away from the four digital media music award presentation ceremonies with a total of 17 awards in 2008, including the most prestigious “Media Award – Performer” presented at the Four Station Joint Music Awards. Kay Tse has achieved premier status as a diva of the Hong Kong pop music scene.
In 2009, Tse gave her debut solo concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum, and released the album “Yelling (吶喊)” at the same time. The album also made the Top Ten Best Selling Chart in 2009. Her 2010 release “Slowness” was on the Hong Kong Record Merchant Album Sales Chart for nine weeks. In November of the same year, she launched her first Mandopop album, “My Second Home (第二個家)”, in which “Weakness (脆弱)” took not only Hong Kong, but also Mainland China and the rest of Asia by storm, topping charts in various media and winning numerous awards.
Kay Tse was named one of the ‘Ten Outstanding Young Persons’ of Hong Kong in 2010, and a ‘Young Leader’ by People Weekly, of the Nanfang Group of China.
MKTO ─ Blend of Pop and Hip Hop from the U.S.
MKTO members Malcolm Kelley and Tony Ollermet in 2010 while filming the Nickelodeon TV show “Gigantic” in which their characters played best friends. From that connection, they formed the band MKTO which is their combined initials. Both have a wide range of musical influences straddlingpop, hip-hop and R&B to produce their own vibrant musical style. In early 2012, MKTO signed to a new partnership involving longtime musical collaborators Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou and Evan “Kidd” Bogart. This songwriting duo has been responsible for hits from Beyonce, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Hot Chelle Rae, Sean Kingston, Jason Derulo amongst others.
V.N.P. ─ A Harmonious Combination of Vocal and Piano
V.N.P. is the acronym for vocals and piano. Leo Wang and Lester Chong are the vocalists while Ruby Leung is pianist/keyboard player. The three members are like-minded in their passion for and knowledge of music, and hit it offstraight away. The band was formed to contest the "Hennessy V.S.O.P & Sony Music 2013 Online Audition". After a winning vote from a professional panel of judges, their success is a reflection of Hennessy V.S.O.P’s "Dare to pursue your dream" philosophy.
