Meet the Artists
This year’s artists are handpicked by Alb himself. These artists are more than just icons, they are singer-songwriters who are personal, handing a piece of themselves to you with each song they sing. Alb wants you to do more than attend Albatross, he wants you to experience the raw passion these talented artists have to offer.
The 2017 lineup includes the best representatives of each Asian music producing regions – MandoPop ballads from Taiwan, folk from Mainland China, K-Pop and indie rock from Korea, and hip-hop from HK. Come try a bit of everything at #AlbMusicFest!
Taeyeon is a South Korean singer who debuted in 2007. She is the leader and main vocalist of K-pop girl group, Girls’ Generation. She became the first K-pop female celebrity to reach seven million followers on Instagram. Taeyeon officially made her debut as solo artist in October 2015 with her first Mini Album “I”, which sold well over 100,000 physical copies. Recently, she released the first full length Album “My Voice” in February 2017, which has sold over 110,000 just for the preorder. Taeyeon will be headlining Albatross Music Festival 2017 in her solo premier performance in North America!
HYUKOH is a South Korean indie pop band that stirred up the Korean indie scene since the time of their debut in 2014. Claiming the title “Band of the New Generation”, the four 23-year-old members create music with various genres and cultural influences, such as Chinese and American. The band expresses the essence of youth—wild and free but also empty and deserted— not only by the music, but also through their videos, fashions, and performances. The lead singer Oh Hyuk’s sweet, yet raspy, voice and the dreamy, retro eclectic band vibes are the perfect combination to sit back and relax to. Their recently released rock album “23” placed 6th on Billboard’s world’s album chart.
The multi-talented Edison is a Hong Kong film actor, musician, producer, entrepreneur, and fashion designer. He is best known for his hip-hop music and his popular clothing line, Clot Media Division CMD. Born and raised in Vancouver, Edison went to R.C. Palmer Secondary in Richmond.
