HAPPY NEW YEAR!! HAPPY SOLAR ECLIPSE…and Happy New Moon! Such an epic day today.
Hope you and your respective families all had joyous, happy holidays. Just saw that the fine folks over at KoreAm posted this fab video of my performance at their Unforgettable Gala back in November of 2010!
I’ve never been nervous in my life, but being in a room full of so many of my fellow successful Asian-American peeps was just mind-blowing. #GoUAsians!
Hope you enjoy! :)
More music news and new songs to come in 2011!!! :)
(please excuse the sound quality in the beginning – they blew out their sound system minutes before I went on…of course! LOL)
So soon after the release of my album STAY, my producer Steve Francisnegotiated a deal to have my album sold in HMV and Tower Records in JAPAN!
Today, someone just sent over these photos of the album in 3 different stores!
Kinda geeking out over the fact that I’m being compared to SADE!! I die.
hope y’all had a warm, happy and healthy holiday. there’s been a lot of news and fun developments happening, but i know how crazy everyone’s emails can get — so i really try to keep these updates to a minimum out of respect. so brace yourselves for a lot of news! :)

thank you again for all your support. hope to see you out at upcoming gigs very soon!!
I can’t believe this day is finally here. It’s my official ALBUM RELEASE!! My album STAY is finally here.
much much love,
Woke up this morning, and had that Christmas Morning type of feeling. That magical stillness you feel in bed…when you wake up and there’s excitement coursing through your veins because you know something amazing awaits you.
Since 2005, I experienced a lot of LIFE. Heartbreak, heartache, loss, healing, struggle, acceptance and learning to self-love. I grew up. All of this was poured into the songs on this album.
I never try to write songs with the intention of TRYING to appeal to anyone. I write songs about very real, very personal experiences.
And even though they are my experiences, I believe in the power of the human connection. Despite our different backgrounds, different ages, different sizes, different colors…our humanity and our human experiences will always bind us to each other. I hope some of the songs on STAY will resonate with you.
STAY is currently available on CD Baby.com, and will be up on iTunes any day now (thanks for being so difficult, Apple).
If you’re in NYC tonight, please come through to Crash Mansion at 7pm to celebrate my official album release party. It would mean so much to me to have your energy bless this project on its inaugural day. :)
it’s with great great pride and happiness that i invite you to come to my OFFICIAL ALBUM RELEASE PARTY!!
my album STAY has been 5 years in the making. after many personal ups and downs, musical soul-searching and several lessons in self, it’s an indescribable feeling to finally be here.
i truly hope you can join me in this celebration. it would mean so much to have all your energy to bless this project at the album release!
hope to see you there.
