NO MUSIC. NO LIFE.
Groove to soothing live music every
Friday night at WOOBAR’s LIVE LAB led by W Music Curator Flora YTW with
exceptional rising stars from O.U.R. Works of SONY Entertainment
Kong music is not all about pops, ballads and heartbreaks. There are
actually many amazing rising stars in every type of genre possible
waiting to be unveiled. So starting from July, W Music Curator Flora YTW
along with music powerhouse SONY Entertainment will be showcasing
up-and-coming talent every Friday night at WOOBAR. Let music speak for
“Music has always been a major part in W Hong Kong,
as it’s the music that brings such energy and vibe to the hotel
experience,” shared W Music Curator Flora YTW. “For this reason, we are
always on the hunt for the-next-best-thing to make our hotel the global
epicenter of entertainment in Hong Kong. After hosting many
world-established acts such as Tiesto and Carl Cox, we believe by
diversifying our music with live acoustic music through SONY
Entertainment, will certainly engage a wider spectrum of trendsetters.”
Being a good band is one thing, but being a good live act is what makes a lasting impression. With this in mind, SONY has hand-picked several artists to form O.U.R. Works that aims to inspire people with the basics of music and life – Lil’ Ashes, Lillian Wong, Shandy Gan, Trekkerz Phil Lam and Jason Chan.
Having performed in Clockenflap Music
Festival, Lion Rock Music Festival and Strawberry Music Festival in
2013, Lil’ Ashes touches many hearts with its soothing guitar and
distinctive female vocals. Lillian Wong on the other hand catches the
public’s attention with its piano pop-rock style of music, which won her
several awards in 2013 such as Commercial Radio 2013 Bronze New Artist
award as well as Metro Radio 2013 New Female Singer / Songwriter Award.
Shandy Gan, famous for her Bossa Nova style of music, cleanses the souls
of her audience with relaxing tunes such as “I remember the…”, “Grandy
Yeah Yeah”, “Cold Cold Night’ and more.
Trekkerz, a live band
group that is composed of three college friends from Hong Kong Academy
of Performing Arts, becomes a crowd-favorite with its wide range of
music styles such as contemporary, chanson, pop and more. Their first
single “原地出發” reached #3 on iTunes Chart and #2 on Commercial Radio. The
Canadian-born Chinese singer Phil Lam with 3 singles up his sleeve,
brings forth to the stage his powerful and energetic tunes that are sure
to get the audience excited. Last but not least, singer-songwriter
Jason Chan has been stealing hearts of music lovers with his charismatic
love songs and last year he even incorporated his own unique vibes in
his first-ever concert “Tales”.
To celebrate the LIVE LAB
music series, Flora FTW, W Hong Kong’s W Music Curator will be working
very closely with SONY to bring about a glamorous launch on July 25 at
WOOBAR from 8pm until late. Not only all the participating artists will
be performing, popular local singer Jason Chan will also be joining the
fun. Stay tuned on our W Hong Kong Facebook (www.facebook.com/whongkong)
