Artist Profile: Isabelle Huang Ling

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Isabelle Huang Ling (Chinese name: 黄龄) came highly recommended from various people on Baidu, who use the words ‘criminally underrated’ and ‘creative’ in a music industry that often prizes looks over actual performance skills. Her musical style is indeed very unique, and she possesses a plaintive yet rich voice somewhat reminiscent of older Chinese folk traditions. Her songs are a blend of pop, R&B, folk and ballads – quite versatile.

I admit, her songs take a while to get used to, due to Huang’s highly distinctive style, but I like them, so I thought I would share.

Her signature song, and the eponymous single on her first album Itchy/痒 (released in 2007):

Live guitar duet for 夜来香/Fragrance of Night:

Just a reminder: my providing the songs here are purely for sampling purposes, if you do like her music, please support the artist by purchasing the album at Yesasia. This goes double for artists that are not as famous, so please don’t ‘hit and run’!

    ‘in a music industry that often prizes looks over actual performance skills.’

    Are you talking about taiwan music or mainland music industry? I don’t think mainland music industry emphasize on looks though.

    Isabelle Huang is my personal favourite young Chinese singer. Both of her albums are outstanding and I recommend that everybody listen to them to support this talented and beautiful girl.
