Two years on since her last studio album, Susan Wong returns with a new album and a fresh direction. Working with Swiss based producer, Adrien Zerbini and Spanish guitarist Ignacio Lamas, Susan took a more ‘hands on’ approach for the 13 new songs recorded in Switzerland in early 2009. The opening song on the album is a bossa nova influenced version of the Earth Wind & Fire classic, September.
Susan Wong maintains a low-profile in her home town of Hong Kong yet is one of the best selling Hong Kong artists throughout South East Asia, and has a global following with releases in Japan, Germany, USA and Korea and a strong following in Brazil, Mexico and Spain. If you talk to many serious music fans in South East Asia they’ll give rave recommendations of Susan, who has been labeled as the ‘Queen of audiophile’, for her soft and sultry vocal style and laid-back music that has won the hearts of her wide and diverse legion of loyal fans. From those audiophile enthusiasts who enjoy listening to fine recordings to young listeners who adore the heart touching love songs the one thing that unites all her fans is their knowledge that they’ve discovered Asia’s best kept secret.
Susan’s recorded her second album, 511 for the evosound label in Geneva Switzerland with producer Adrien Zerbini. The album surprised many with her fresh bossa nova influenced versions of songs such as Michael Jackson’s Bille Jean and Hall’s & Oates Every Time You Go Away. Billie Jean received extensive airplay throughout S.E.Asia and a version on YouTube received over 450,000 views many of which came from viewers in Brazil, Argentina and Mexico further establishing Susan as one of Hong Kong’s mostly widely listened to artists throughout the world.
