Singer/songwriter, actress, author, playwright, screenwriter. Any of these could be used to describe Taiwanese songstress Enno Cheng. Hailing from the idyllic and sleepy Eastern Taiwan seaside town of Yilan, in 2011 Cheng put her versatility as an artist on full display with her debut album, Neptune. With a stripped down, truthful approach, Neptune placed Cheng firmly on the Taiwanese indie map. Her lyrics, odes to love, the beauty of nature, personal identity, and emotive musings on the alienation of urban life, have endeared her to countless fans.
Later, Cheng would form the band Chocolate Tiger, a group that would allow her to further spread her musical wings beyond bare acoustic asceticism, uplifting her sound to denser, more melodic elevation. Yet another collaborative effort, the pop rock collective Felix Felicis, marked Cheng as a true musical polymath, willing to go wherever the creative forces within compel her to go.
Since Neptune first introduced Enno Cheng to the world, she has put out four more albums, taking to stages at major music festivals both at home and abroad. In 2017, she went back to her solo acoustic routes with her second album under her own name, this one entitled Pluto, keeping with her planetary-themed album titles that serve as the perfect companion to her spacy, ethereal take on raw, acoustic explorations of the human condition.
Following Pluto came 2019’s Dear Uranus, yet another step in her evolution as a singer who can be counted on for her warm, poetic compositions, candid and revealing, laying mind and soul bare for the world to see.
